  • My head, it hurts, each day it's getting worse
    My looks and smile have now become my curse
    Tight lips, red skirt, the never ending street
    Big car, little man, my lover for a fee

    So if you see me, will you just drive on by?
    Or will I catch the twinkle inside your eye?
    And if you want me, well, I guess I want you
    Oh, pretty baby, how could you?

    Standing in the rain
    Milk carton mug shot, baby
    Missing since 1983
    Standing in the rain
    Twenty years of dirty needles
    Raindrops running through my veins

    My head, it hurts, each day it's getting worse
    No sun, my room has now become my hearse
    Cold sores, I'm beat, got bruises on my feet
    My pride, these men have taken it from me

    So if you see me, will you just drive on by?
    Or will I catch the twinkle inside your eye?
    And if you want me, well, I guess I want you
    Oh, pretty baby, how could you?

    Standing in the rain
    Milk carton mug shot, baby
    Missing since 1983
    Standing in the rain
    Twenty years of dirty needles
    Raindrops running through my veins
    Standing in the rain
    Milk carton mug shot, baby
    Missing since 1983
    Standing in the rain
    Twenty years of dirty needles
    Raindrops running through my veins

    So if you see me, will you just drive on by?
    Or will I catch the twinkle inside your eye?
    And if you want me, well, I guess I want you
    Oh, pretty baby, how could you?

    Standing in the rain
    Standing in the rain
    Standing in the rain
    Milk carton mug shot, baby
    Mother, I have lost my way

    Standing in the rain
    Milk carton mug shot, baby
    Missing since 1983
    Standing in the rain
    Twenty years of dirty needles
    Raindrops running through my veins

    Standing in the rain
    Mother, I have lost my way
    Standing in the rain
    Mother, I have lost my way Writer/s: Aaron Solowoniuk, Ben Kowalewicz, Ian D'sa, Jon Gallant

  • Samantha from Costa Mesa, Cain this song they talk about a "Milk carton mug shot baby missing since 1983" and then about 20 years of dirty needles if you add 1983 and 20 you get 2003 which is the year the CD was released which leads me to beleive that the baby and the prostitute are the same person
  • Brandon from Saskatoon, Canadaya this song has a pretty sweet beginning guitar riff, pretty cool but i like how it goes
  • Joanne from Regina, CanadaI love this song, it's one of my favourites, gives you a different perspective on these things.
