Force of Nature - Graham Parker

    She's got everything she needs and it isn't you
    A cosmetic arsenal a bucket of glue
    Signs on her back that say Keep on the grass
    Powerful liquor in a hip flask
    Coins from the commonwealth Doubloons from the sea
    A knife in her boot heel A Bonsai tree
    Ice cream in her pocket Diamonds from her fence
    It all works like clockwork It all makes sense

    To a force of nature, force of nature, force of nature
    That's what she is

    With her clouded leopard on a leash in the shed
    A vicious black rodent she calls Fred
    She keeps her diary under the bed
    but there's nothin' in it cos it's all in her head
    Walkin' round London with foreign banknotes
    throwin' silver nunchucks at cab drivers throats
    Being invisible Being obscene
    Being the person you wish you'd been

    [Repeat Chorus]

    But inside her heart There's a kid locked away in a room
    Who throws a grenade at your feet that explodes with such force
    That it bursts your balloon like a force of nature

    But inside her heart there's this kid locked away in a room
    Who peeks through the door every now and again
    and says hey I'm coming out soon

    Her raincoat jingles Your mercury soars
    Every last move defies gravity's laws
    Her computer's connected directly to the stars
    Keeps her emotions in mason jars
    Stored in the attic in the roof near the sky
    Up in the rafters where the bats fly
    Being impossible Being on a roll
    Being like something you can't control
