Well Susie looked a mess when she came home at night
And she laughed at the tears that her mother cried
Susie wouldn't do you like a good girl should
So you might as well forget her while the getting is good

Susie went out every night and didn't come home
And she knew that her daddy wouldn't leave with the dawn
Her told her that he told her that she oughta be good
But never really told her why she misunderstood

He said
I'd change the weather
Buy all that you see
But I'll never know what's the matter with Susie

They shouted and they wailed at the things that she said
And every other day they get inside her head
Cause they never knew why she wasn't like the rest
Why every single night she came home half dressed

Daddy worked the day shift at the jewelery store
And the things that he brought home to her she seemed to ignore
He told her and he told her and he told her again
You're living like a hooker who's retouching a stain

He said
I'll change the weather
Buy all that you see
But I'll never know what's the matter with Susie

I'll change the weather
Buy all that you see
But I'll never know what's the matter with Susie

I'll change the weather
Buy all that you see
But I'll never know what's the matter with Susie

No I'll never know what's the matter with Susie
