When Margaret Comes To Town Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When you were a kid you received no good instruction
And your mother was never nowhere to be found
The lies were yelled and truth was seldom spoken

That's what you get when Margaret comes to town
She likes to keep things upside down
When Margaret comes to town

When your thoughts are twisted and distorted
And your children are forced to choose sides and lie down
And the keeper is screaming drunk running around naked

It's for your pleasure when Margaret comes to town
She likes to keep things upside down
When Margaret comes to town

Oh, but those who believe in her
They cut off their noses to spite their faces
Leaving you the little one scared and lonely
Who really cares about you now

So if you see her coming, man, you'd better take cover
She stays down at the dark end of a frown
And just like the sirens that are so sweetly singing

It's better just to leave when Margaret comes to town
When Margaret comes to town
She likes to keep things upside down

When Margaret comes to town
She likes to keep things upside down
When Margaret comes to town
