lyrics

There she goes
The girl with the funny nose
That's always buried in a book
You haven't given her that second look

And you say
A girl has got to have that certain sway
The kind that makes you kind of weak
You're looking for the sunshine on top of the dark mystique

And so you do what you gotta do
You make an exception to that rule,
Just like you did for the girl with the shoulderblade tattoo

When you see her out
Driving in her foreign car
Don't be fooled into thinking the distance is much too far
You'll see a Saturn is something you can do without
When you do what you gotta do

You make an exception to that rule
Just like you did for the girl with the shoulderblade tattoo

And it isn't fair
You didn't mean to meet him there
With the bartender looking on
But he approached you with that awkward boyish charm
And so you did what you had to do

You made an exception to that rule,
Just like you did for the boy who howled at the moon

Maybe she don't watch your favorite TV show... yet
Maybe you don't read her favorite author... yet
Perhaps you didn't get the memo
That smart is the new blonde
Brown is the new blue
And lonely is the current you

And so you do what you gotta do
You make an exception to that rule,
Just like you did for the girl with the shoulderblade tattoo
