      About "Stockings"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Stockings"

      I don't care for tights, she says
      And does not tell me why
      She hikes her skirt above her knee
      Revealing one brown thigh

      I see, I say, and wonder at
      Her slender little fingers
      How cleverly they pull upon
      The threads of recent slumbers

      Do you know where friendship ends
      And passion does begin?
      It's between the binding of
      Her stockings and her skin.
      (Oh yeah)

      She stayed up so late I thought
      She'd ask me to go dance
      But something in the way she laughed
      Told me I had no chance

      The fiction in her family
      Was that she was never nice
      I'd say she was very
      I just did not see the price

      Do you know where friendship ends
      And passion does begin?
      When the gin and tonic
      Makes the room begin to spin.
      (Oh yeah)

      There may be attraction here
      But it will never flower
      So I'm assigned to read her mind, now
      In this witching hour

      Here's no game for those who claim
      To be easily bruised
      But how can I complain
      When she's so easily amused?

      Do you know where friendship ends
      And passion does begin?
      (When she does not show you
      The way out on the way in) --
      It's between the binding
      Of her stockings and her skin.
      (Oh yeah)
