And shame on you, my love
You sold your youth away
Memories are sinking ships
That never would be saved

These lines seem to stand out for me at the moment....

So don't sing me your songs about the good times
Those days are gone and you should just let them go

Not sure why.

I got three:

"American girls, They want the whole world/
They want every last little light in NYC."

"If you find a good man don't take him home"

"Hub city girls with the ribbons and curls/
they know the meaning of staying out late"

You've got your pride and your prose tucked just like a tommy gun somewhere in the smoke just in case you need it.

I buried my faith in an unmarked plot

I'll put your bones out in the yard"

You may very well be right. It's either claws, or clothes, with some real emphasis put into the O. I assumed it was clothes most likely because of the way that I interpret that particular verse.

"Don't sing me your songs about the good times, those days are gone and you should just let 'em go" cut like a knife on first listen because of all the nostalgia present in the first two and SATQ.

And basically all of The Diamond Church Street Choir.

Bring It On:

So give me the fevers that just won't break
And give me the children you don't want to raise

The Queen Of Lower Chelsea:

Did you grow up a good girl,
You daddy's pride?
Did you make all the right moves,
Take all the right drugs right on time?
American girls, they want the whole world
They want every last little in New York City

Old Haunts:


So don't sing me your songs about the good times
Those days are gone and you should just let them go

The Spirit Of Jazz:

Was I good to you, the wife of my youth
Not another soul could love you
Like my rotten bones do

Agreed, but I personally think the part towards the end where the drums drown out the last three words is even better. Really gets the passion behind the lyrics across.
