      About "Neighborhood Girls"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Neighborhood Girls"

      "We had our
      Neighborhood girl, she
      Used to hang out, in front of
      McKinsey's Bar, and we were
      Interested in her, and her clientele
      We just wonder where she's gone"
      "Oh she's gone?"
      "Yes, she's gone, gone, gone"

      "I think you know your
      Neighborhood girl, she
      Lives on my street, now, with eyes of ice
      I've seen her in the morning, when she is
      Walking in the sun
      And I always thought that she
      Looked kind of nice

      She spoke to me once
      At a party, I think
      And I thought at the time
      That she had had too much to drink, because she
      Said to me, 'There's a backbone gone
      And I've got to get it back
      Before going on'

      And your neighborhood girl
      Seems to have resigned
      She was looking out at people
      From the back of her mind
      And before she went off
      She spoke to me again
      She came up and said

      'You have the eyes of a friend
      And there's a razor's edge
      That I have lost somewhere
      And I would like it back
      So if you've seen it anywhere
      I've been out for a while
      But I'll be back in a bit
      I am just walking through the smoke
      Finding out if this is it
      Because I've got this feeling
      That things are going grey
      And I'd like to hear a straight line
      To help me find my way'

      I looked at her
      And I did not know what to say
      She had long black hair"

      "Must be a different
      Neighborhood girl, cause
      Ours had blonde hair, in front of
      McKinsey's Bar
      And we were interested in her
      And her clientele
      We just wonder where she's gone"
      "Oh she's gone?"
      "Yes, she's gone, gone, gone"
