The Girl Isn't Ready - Graham Parker

    The girl isn't ready
    is what her mother says
    We just put her toys away
    it seems like yesterday
    She has seen something
    better through the window
    She will reach for it
    even though she doesn't know
    If she's

    Ready, the girl isn't ready
    We can never tell her how to take it steady
    She'll be re a dy one day I know

    The girl isn't ready
    to do what she wants to do
    We think that her boyfriend's
    like something from a zoo
    She thinks that she understands
    what she's feeling
    She's going to leave us
    make no mistake
    the wounds won't be healing

    [Repeat Chorus]

    The girl isn't ready sure
    she thinks she is
    She walks like a woman
    but talks just like a kid
    She wants to take on
    the world and his brother
    Next thing you know
    she'll be telling us that
    she's a mother

    [Repeat Chorus]
