written and recorded sometime around 1985, when I played briefly with a band called the Tuxedos, there is also a hilarious video from cable access TV on VHS which I need to digitize and post.


She says she's in love with you
But I know what she's up to
She's gonna break your heart
And that's just the start

That's what I say
(She's just a teaser)
Sophisticated Mama

She says she's in love with you
But I know what she's up to
She'll break your heart and walk out the door
Then she'll be coming back for more


from Not In Here You Don't, released November 24, 2013
The verse lyric was written by a member of the Tuxedos, but I can't remember his name - Bob, I think? I wrote the music and chorus lyric, because I like the word "sophisticated"
