Tell Your Sister
Lloyd Cole Lyrics


I've got a little piece of paper with your name written on it
Got a head full of attitude and nowhere to put it
Tell me: why don't you come down to Rue Morgue Avenue?
Why don't you come down?
Soil your pretty feet on the dirty ground of Rue Morgue Avenue

Well, there's a chapel on the corner where I'm doing my crying
There's a limit to my patience, what'd ya say, Fay, let's get married
Down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They say the world keeps on turning, and everything remains the same
Well, my heart's burning, and I say everything must change
Why don't you come down to Rue Morgue Avenue?
Why don't you come down?
Soil your pretty feet on the dirty ground of Rue Morgue Avenue
Rue Morgue avenue

Rita-Mae, tell your sister she's unkind
Tell your sister
Well, I don't mind
Tell your sister, she's got mine

Why don't you come down?
Soil your pretty feet on the dirty ground
I got a four letter word; starts with the letter "l"
Can't bring myself to say it 'cause it's making my life hell
Why don't you come down to Rue Morgue Avenue?
'Cause I've been drinking all night and all day
Just trying to picture your sweet face
Down on Rue Morgue Avenue
Down on Rue Morgue Avenue
Down on Rue Morgue Avenue

Rita-Mae, tell your sister she's unkind
Tell your sister
Well, I don't mind
Tell your sister
She knows where
Where I lie
Down on Rue Morgue Avenue
Down on Rue Morgue Avenue
Down on...
Down on Rue Morgue Avenue
Down on Rue Morgue Avenue

So tragically underrated!

Shaun Deer

You know the world is wrong when you listen to popular music today and see how underrated this great artist is.

Nostradamus Daley

I've been hoping someone would upload this-an absolutely perfect song. Many thanks.

Jim Martinez

Classic Lloyd

LdKinbote

Love this song.

Oppothumbs M

Great record as was the whole album but not enough people in the world with good taste in music or really anything.

Francisco Franco

Perfect. Lloyd Cole with Robert Quine, Matthew Sweet and Fred Maher.

John Bishop

Living in Minneapolis, from Lincoln Nebraska. Found the cool radio station. Played this every day. So cool. At the time between Loyd, Mathew, zevon, Bruce, Jackson, and indigo , this album was amazing. Only thing close came 3 years later the Arc Angel's

Tim Skelton

Nothing to add-you've all already said it all. Just sorry I didn't discover it at the time.

Ken Pudsey

Better late than never Tim 👍
