[verse 1]
D
Well I'd rather see you dead little girl
Bm
Than to be with another man
D
You better keep your head little girl
Bm
Or you won't know where I am

[chorus] E
You better run for your life if you can little girl
Bm E
Hide your head in the sand little girl
Bm G
Catch you with another man
F# Bm D
That's the end little girl.
