hundred dollars lyrics – punch brothers

hundred dollars

city girls are all the same
they play you like a pinball game
oh what a summer

making love to make believe
their hearts are on not up their sleeves
oh what a summer to lie
under violet or to guys that ask for your number
oh would you wonder why
if i paid a hundred dollars for the chance to see you cry
and a hundred more to see you cry again ‘stead a singing

no no body’s warmer to the touch than hers but you’ll never
know know anything as cold as the heart of a city girl

this imaginary friend
can’t remember he’s pretend
oh what a summer to lie
under neon and gl*ss or to me as i ask for your number
oh would you wonder why
if i paid a hundred dollars for the chance to see you cry
and a hundred more to see ya cry again ‘stead a singing

no no body’s warmer to the touch than hers but you’ll never
know know anything as cold as the heart of a city girl

we took a hammer and chisel to the cornerstone
’cause the building had to come down
in a show more pretty than practical
for to satisfy the city girls around
oh it was beautiful but it fell too soon
took a few good men and left these city guys
who would pay a hundred dollars for the chance to see you cry
and a hundred more to see you cry again ‘stead a singing

no no body’s warmer to the touch than hers but you’ll never
know know anything as cold as the heart of a city girl
