Cruel Girl
The Red Button Lyrics

Cruel Girl why you gotta treat me like a fool girl
Bring me down with everything you do girl
Break my faithful little heart in two girl, cruel girl

I know that I should go I should walk away
But when I think of how things were only yesterday,
It makes me stay.
You were so sweet when we first met
Now you're so bad to me I just can't forget

You're a cruel girl
I'll do anything you want to do girl
I'll believe that every lie is true girl
I could never settle for a new girl, cruel girl

What keeps me standing here staying by your side
When the way you treat me girl only hurts my pride
I can't lie.
I can't forget the words you said
You used to hold me now you hurt me instead.

Everytime I walk away I end up running back to you,
it's true.
Other girls would treat me better
Why you gotta be so cruel. So cruel.

You were so sweet when we first met
But then your pretty face went straight to your head

Oh you're a cruel girl
No one else can hurt me like you do girl
But you know I'll always be your fool girl
I could never settle for a new girl cruel girl
You're so cruel, you're so cruel
Just don't ever tell me that we're through
Oh, you're so cruel.

I caught 'Cruel Girl' on Little Steven's show driving back from the beach and asked out loud "how in the world did I miss this 'lost' Badfinger track?" The influence is pronounced... Absolutely, fantastic!

I love this. Seth Swirsky. Born 1960. Has a site "Manic Expression"! This guy has a great Beatles documentary "Beatles Stories". Great stuff on YouTube!
He sings with Davey Jones at Mr. Jones last birthday party. He wrote songs for Taylor Dane, Al Green. He has great acoustic performances. He is unsigned. A defininte famous fabulous unsigned unknown.  A shame.

I first head this song about... who knows how long ago? I was at a restaurant in Maple Grove, MN working as a salesman for Red Bull. I was talking to the manager of the place when the line "You were so sweet when we first met, but then your pretty face when straight to your head" caught me off guard and stood out from the normal background noise... Over a decade later and this song still kicks my ass.



I love this song. Can't wait for the new CD on iTunes.


So Freakin Awesome!!!
