Dance Hall Girls

Dance Hall Girls
(A. Fraser)

These dance hall girls, they don't treat you kind
They give you their bodies, you never reach their minds
Well, they fill you up with lipstick lies
When they put you down some, don't ya be surprised
Is this the way it always is, here in Baltimore?

Well, I saw her mountains, and I kissed her plains
I held her sunshine, and I drank her rains
Well, I went so far, that I broke too fast
Thought I had a winner picked, but I came in last again
Is this the way it always is, here in Baltimore?

(CHORUS)
(Repeat from here)
I must have chosen the wrong season to come down
I never realized they call this sacred ground.

My sense of time, hell, I'm a week behind
I sent me a letter home but this all takes time.

[first ending]
Gonna get some cash, gonna go back home
These dance hall girls really know how to make a man feel alone
is this the way it always is, here in baltimore?

[second ending]
Gonna get some cash, gonna blow this town
These dance hall girls really know how to drag a poor boy down
Is this the way it always is, here in Baltimore?
Is this the way it always is, here in Baltimore?

The song was originally written and performed by Fraser & Debolt, a male/female
duo from Canada that was recording around the late 60s-early 70s. The song is fr
om an album called "Overnight Sensation."
