The Preatures – Cherry Ripe Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can see you, Cherry
A case, a black jacket, never getting straight As
Put you on a stage, now they know your name
But you used to be different, baby, back in the day
When you only lived for the sell
Said, “I know I’m at my best when I’m not myself”
You were nobody then, you were nobody, girl
But, man, you made nothing look like something else

[Chorus]
Oh, Cherry Ripe, you’re looking good tonight
Put your black eyes on, baby, let's get started

[Verse 2]
I can see you, Cherry
Kicked out of the party 'cause you were on your back
Took three at a time, got you such a bad wrap
Surprised after they did it there was anything of you left
Trying to be one of the boys
Pleasing for affection doesn’t give you much choice
You can joke all you like but I know that voice
I was up on the ceiling looking back at you like glass

[Chorus]
Oh, Cherry Ripe, you’re looking good tonight
Put your black eyes on, baby, let's get started
Oh, Cherry Ripe, you’re looking good tonight
Play that heavy metal, baby, let's get to it

[Interlude]
Uh-uh, uh, uh-uh, uh
Uh-uh, uh, uh-uh
Uh-uh, uh, uh-uh, uh
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh
Uh-uh, uh, uh-uh, uh
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh
Uh-uh-uh-uh, uh-uh
Uh-uh, uh, uh-uh

[Verse 3]
I can see you, Cherry
I guess you’re walking home, four o’clock in the morning
And you’re keeping it right and you’re keeping it mean
You always put the bitter where the sugar should've been

[Chorus]
Oh, Cherry Ripe, you’re looking good tonight
Put your black eyes on, baby, let's get started
Oh, Cherry Ripe, you’re looking good tonight
Play that heavy metal, baby, let's get to it, uh, uh, uh
