  1. Crazy Lily

From the recording Hand Picked Tunes

Lyrics

Gauche and rude at seventeen
She could punch your lip
then be so serene
Crimson hair and a gypsy skirt
she squeezed inside a grandad shirt
She only ever wanted to be understood
but they called her Crazy Lily in the neighbourhood

Left alone to grow up fast
The mould was set, the die was cast
Broken china in the sink
too much loving and too much drink
She only ever wanted to be understood
but they called her Crazy Lily in the neighbourhood

she became my Crazy Lily she loved
Roll ups, beer and rockabilly
I adored the stars above her
And she became my crazy lover

Even though her life was a mess
She looked adorable in that dress
She floats around the room
with her eyes alight
Looking for a lover or another fight
She only ever wanted to be understood
but they called her Crazy Lily in the neighbourhood
