Charted: 67
  • Hey Dorothea
    Do you ever stop and think about me?
    When we were younger
    Down in the park
    Honey, making a lark of the misery
    You got shiny friends since you left town
    A tiny screen's the only place I see you now
    And I got nothing but well wishes for ya

    Oooh
    This place is the same as it ever was
    Oooh
    But you don't like it that way

    It's never too late
    To come back to my side
    The stars in your eyes
    Shined brighter in Tupelo
    And if you're ever tired of being known
    For who you know
    You know, you'll always know me
    Dorothea (ah-ah)
    Dorothea (ah-ah)

    Ooh, you're a queen
    Selling dreams
    Selling make up and magazines
    Ooh, from you I'd buy anything

    Hey Dorothea
    Do you ever stop and think about me?
    When it was calmer
    Skipping the prom
    Just to piss off your mom
    And her pageant schemes
    And damn, Dorothea
    They all wanna be ya
    But are you still the same soul
    I met under the bleachers?
    Well

    Ooh
    I guess I'll never know
    Ooh
    And you'll go on with the show

    But it's never too late
    To come back to my side
    The stars in your eyes
    Shined brighter in Tupelo
    And if you're ever tired of being known
    For who you know
    You know, you'll always know me

    Dorothea (ah-ah)
    Dorothea (ah-ah)

    Ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh-woo-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh
    Ooh-woo-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
