THE GIRLS OF GLADSTONE

Klaus J. Gerken

The girls of Gladstone
Never give their wares away
The girls of Gladstone
Walk the streets both night and day
The girls of Gladstone
Read you like an open book
The girls of Gladstone
Are quick to catch a knowing look

The girls of Gladstone
Are beautiful and always fair
The girls of Gladstone
Have money braided in their hair
The girls of Gladstone
Grant the deepest lost desires
The girls of Gladstone
Caress you like an open fire

Every now and then they say they care
Every now and then you try to believe them
Every now and then they really do
But they leave you in some alley at the foot of no return

The girls of Gladstone
Open up their wounds to you
The girls of Gladstone
Know the pain that love accrues
The girls of Gladstone
Willingly compute the cost
The girls of Gladstone
Know what they have won or lost

The girls of Gladstone
Step upon the stones of time
The girls of Gladstone
Know the truth is only lies
The girls of Gladstone
Ratify each deal you make
The girls of Gladstone
Steal and then return your faith

Every now and then they say they care
Every now and then you try to believe them
Every now and then they really do
But they leave you in some alley at the foot of no return
