Southern Belle

Southern Belle

Elliott Smith

Killing a southern belle is all you know how to do
That and give other people hell
It's what they expect from you too
But I wouldn't have you how you want

I don't want to walk around
I don't even want to breathe
I live in a southern town
Where all you can do is grit yr teeth

But I wouldn't have you how you want
How come you're not ashamed of what you are?
And sorry that you're the one she got?
Ain't nobody looking now

Nobody nothing's said
No one's about to shout
Nobody's seen red
But I wouldn't have you how you want

You're killing a southern belle
Killing a southern belle
Killing a southern belle
