  • For the price of a cup of tea
    You'd get a line of coke
    For the price of a night with me
    You'd be the village joke
    For the price of a pint of milk
    I'll tell you all I know
    About the state of the world today
    Sit down, enjoy the show

    She had several hours to find a place to stay
    Try the coffee shop, but somewhere on the way
    She heard about a place, somewhere she could go
    Walked a couple of blocks to her destination

    For the price of a cup of tea
    You'd get a seven inches
    Soul black vinyl to stop your tears
    You can use my stereo
    You might be the village joke but
    Don't listen to the gossip of the other folk

    She just wants to be accepted in this place
    There's something in her face
    She will always seem exotic and aloof
    If you want to know the truth
    Her friend the stars dripping from the jewelled sky
    When she was passing by
    Would keep her calm
    There was people that she knew, at least she thought she did
    Be easy on the kid!

    She took her winter coat from her plastic wrapper
    Pushed back her fringe, see her birthmark
    She can finally be the person she wanted to be Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
