lyrics

Was a man, dark eyed and mean
the best looking man I've ever seen
he didn't want me though I tried
to throw myself into his life
"oh take me take me wont you please"
and this is what he said to me:
he said come back when you grow up girl
its a snake and ladder world
and you're hanging on the bottom rung
and love is a wheel that they break you on

I thought he meant that I was too good
so I got bad as fast as I could
smoking, drinking, playing cards
and talking to strange men in bars
but when badness didn't work somehow
and I asked him if he would take me now
he said come back when you grow up girl
its a snake and ladder world

I thought he meant that I wasn't smart
well I would have to fix that part
I started watching all the news
and I read books and book reviews
and when I went back to show him how I'd grown
and I found that he was not alone
he was with another girl
I guess one who knew about the world

oh it's a snake and ladder world
and snakes love eating little girls
I guess that's the world he warned me of when he broke me on the wheel

(its a snake and ladder world)

(its a snake and ladder world)

one lady band
sounds like
Doc Watson and GG Allin had a baby in outer space
that cries golden tears
