Bek Lyrics

Girl

(From the Guero Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen, The Dust Brothers]

I saw her, yeah I saw her

With her black tongue tied
Round the roses

Fist pounding on a vending machine
Toy diamond ring, stuck on her finger
With a noose she can hang from the sun
And put it out with her dark sunglasses
Walking crooked down the beach
She spits on the sand
Where their bones are bleaching

And I know I'm gonna steal her eye
She doesn't even know what's wrong
And I know I'm gonna make her die
Take her where her soul belongs
And know I'm gonna steal her eye
Nothing that I wouldn't try

Hey, my summer girl
Hey, my summer girl…
My summer girl…
Hey, my summer girl…

I saw her, yeah I saw her
With her hands tied back, and her rags were burning

Crawling out from a landfilled life

Scrawlin' her name upon the ceiling
Throw a coin in the fountain of dust

White noise, her ears are ringing
Got a ticket for a midnight hanging
Throw a bullet from a freight train leaving

And I know I'm gonna steal her eye
She doesn't even know what's wrong
And I know I'm gonna make her die
Take her where her soul belongs
And I know I'm gonna steal her eye

Nothing that I wouldn't try

Hey, my summer girl
Hey, my summer girl…
My summer girl
Hey, my summer girl…

Hey, my summer girl
Hey, my summer girl…
My summer girl
Hey, my summer girl…
Hey, my summer girl…

Hey, my summer girl…
My summer girl…
Hey, my summer girl…
