Allow me to set the scene for how things went down
It was a dirty little rock dive over in camden town
I dip into the room and feel diluted by every guy
Beefing up oversized pie in the sky
Still, I’m propping up the bar trying to look cool
But really she’s the iceberg and I’m a titanic fool
Heaven forbid that we should actually speak
It’d be easier to part the red sea
Than to cross over to her for me

Strawberry Blonde, not your average girl
She lives on the road playing her rock and roll
She listens to Frank Zappa and all the best shred
I’ve got Strawberry blonde in my head

She’s alone at the bar, after her show ends
For every wincing moment I could shrink or make amends
Rummaging round inside trying to rouse an advance
But clearly I am flying by the seat of my pants
Seems like everyone else would just know what to say
When small talk is not my forte
And I can only muster cliché

Strawberry Blonde, not your average girl
She’ll make you want to stray out of your ordinary world
She’ll hook you in as I have been, I’m seeing red
I’ve got Strawberry blonde in my head

Strawberry blonde is my kind of girl
But I don’t even think that she noticed me at all
I could leave now, and she won’t even know
