lyrics

She Wore Red

Ruby said it's not like it was in the 60's
But it's a beautiful bargain for £25
Each dress that I sell has a story to tell like when I was the belle of the ball
Nowadays I just catch the stitches that fall

Ruby said we broke all the rules in the 60's
And handing me my change she laughed out loud
She had a lover who married another and as he walked back up the aisle
She lifted up her widows veil and smiled

She wore red
She wore red

Ruby said everyone did in the 60's
Things they'd never dream of doing these days
Like running naked for half a weeks wages 'cross Westminster bridge for a dare
Nowadays everyone's just running scared

Suddenly I can see skeletons lurking in cupboards in all of our lives
So don't judge a book by it's cover cos you might discover another when you look inside

She wore red
She wore red roses 
She wore red in case he forgot
That night they kissed and the whole world stopped

Now she'll patch and mend these poor old rags
But once upon a time this girl was bad
After the vows and the cake and the crowds he found his way back to her bed
I don't know if it's true it's just what Ruby said

She wore red
She wore red roses 
She wore red in case he forgot
That night they kissed and the whole world stopped
She wore red
