Jodie wears a hat, although it hasn't rained for six days.
She says a girl needs a gun these days,
Hey, on account of those rattlesnakes, on account of those rattlesnakes.
She looks like Eve Marie Saint in "On The Waterfront."
She reads Simone de Beauvoir in her American circumstance, hey...

She's less than sure if her heart has come to stay in San Jose.
And her never-born child haunts her now as she speeds down the freeway;
As she tries her luck with the traffic police, out of boredom more than spite.
She never finds no trouble, she tries too hard.
She's oblivious despite herself, hey

She looks like Eve Marie Saint in "On The Waterfront."
She says all she needs is therapy- all you need is, love is all you need... ah-ahh.

Jodie never sleeps 'cause there are always needles in the hay, hey.
She says a girl needs a gun these days,
Hey, on account of the rattlesnakes, hey, on account of the rattlesnakes.
She looks like Eve Marie Saint in "On The Waterfront."
She reads Simone de Beauvoir in her American circumstance.
Her heart's like crazy paving, upside-down and back-to-front.
She says, ooh, it's so hard to love when love was your great disappointment.

On account of those rattlesnakes.
She says a girl needs a gun these days, hey, uht-uh-uh...mmm-hmm.
A girl needs a gun these days,
Hey, on account of the rattlesnakes, yeah, on account of those rattlesnakes.
