Positively Haley St.

about

Inspired by a (somewhat) true story that took place on Haley Street in Santa Barbara.

lyrics

Driving down Haley Street, three a.m. on Sunday night,
I caught a glimpse of that amazon and what a fine sight
I opened my car door for her just to be polite,
She told me "$25 and it's your lucky night"
Her hair was golden brown her eyes blue like a lake,
Built like a quarterback and strong as a tank,
Shoulders like a semi truck and nails long and fake,
I knew I had a feeling that I just couldn't shake

Suzanne was a man!

(Chorus)
Well she looked like a woman, But she walked like a man
She took me by the hand , She said, "You can call me Suzanne."
I looked a little closer my hands started to shake, I said to myself, Lord I've made a big mistake
I thought she was a woman but she was a fake, What she had to give, I just couldn't take

She whispered into my ear let's go have some fun,
Her Adam's apple stuck out like the barrel of a gun
Just like a good old Mustang her parts had been redone,
She said don't worry, I'll take good care of you hun,
Just then the lights were flashing, I heard the sirens wail,
They hauled us off to good ol' Santa Barbara County Jail
Officer said you're free to go but that wasn't the end of the tale,
To my surprise that big old man had posted my bail

(Chorus)
(solos)
(Chorus)
