Scarlet Women


I was cougared in a corner, a rat caught in a trap.
(A) Painted ladies, loose ‘n’ lawless man-about-town attack!
Young enough to catch their eye, ‘n’am not too old to care.
Comin’ on strong these minxes wanna one-night lust affair.

A honey trap? A dirty sting? ‘n’indecent propostion?
I don’t need to prove a thing, but these girls are on a mission.

I was born with a silver tongue, that’s worth its weight in gold.
I’m every woman’s Prince Charmin’, yeah, that’s what I’ve been told.
Time marches on, friends come ‘n’ go, beauty fades to grey:
Nothin’ lasts forever so go wild live for today!

A honey trap? A dirty sting? I’m above suspicion.
‘cos I don’t need to prove a thing, but these girls are on commission.

Scarlet women.

Flashin’ those cum-again eyes.
Whisperin’ those nasty, nasty lies.
I ain’t gonna fall for it this time … who’m I kiddin’!?

Breakin’ no laws, breakin’ my balls, slavin’ for a song:
I’ve been chained and handcuffed when I ain’t done nothin’ wrong!
I missed school the day they taught that fools and horses work.
I paid my dues, I done my time to join the circle jerk.

A honey trap? A dirty sting? I’m under suspicion.
I don’t need to prove a thing, but these whores want my submission.

Scarlet women.
