lyrics

Je deteste je deteste I abhor you in your dress
making eyes like you have seen it all before.
Je deteste je deteste you pose well you say less
and leave them thinking that you could say more.

Little girls dressed in their Sunday best
they go to church and pray you see them in their dress.
Little girls oh how they do protest
and roll their eyes and pray you see their little blessings.
Little girls oh how they do confess
and when they do they whisper so they keep you guessing.
Little girls oh how they do know best
and when they do their worst you do a lot of regretting.

Je accuse je accuse you got no right to these blues
you sing well but you misplace the tune.
Je accuse je accuse you ain't nearly half as bruised
as the man you left for a boy you hardly knew.

Little girls dressed in their Sunday best
they go to church and pray you see them in their dress.
Little girls oh how they do protest
and roll their eyes and pray you see their little blessings.
Little girls oh how they do confess
and when they do they whisper so they keep you guessing.
Little girls oh how they do know best
and when they do their worst you do a lot of regretting.
Je deteste je deteste I have lived through enough wrecks
to excuse myself and kindly say goodbye.

The Foghorns Seattle, Washington

Landing in Seattle via Iceland, Wisconsin and Brooklyn, The Foghorns are a very late night folk and roots rock octet. Bart Cameron writes the songs, a rag tag choir (nicknamed Bucket o Bourbon Choir), provides harmonies, rhythm, and broken glass, and Lauren Trew demonstrates the bass clarinet should be part of rock.While insane touring decreased in 2012, live shows are still a focus. ... more
