Put That Face On

Put That Face On (from the album Cadillacs & Tarantulas)

Work with me baby, you’ve got nothin’ to lose.
Put on your best dress honey and your high heel shoes
You’re not like the others, you’re the best I’ve seen yet.
You’ll get the highest price in town, it will be no sweat

Put that face on… Turn a trick, make it stick
Turn those guys on… Rack ’em up, shack ’em up.
Put that face on… Check ’em out, suck ’em dry
Turn those guys on… while you slip right past their fly.

You know at seventeen, I can make you a star.
Get you money, clothes & jewels and a nice new car
Give me control so you can’t crimp.
Ya know that’s my job as your record company pimp
Let’s sell some records while we set our morals aside.
The public don’t mind, they’re along for the ride.

Paint those jeans on… the way they like, nice and tight
Turn those boys on while they’re young – nice and ripe.

Better keep your head up, this ain’t no small town.
Cause if you don’t deliver the skin, I’ll kick you around
You’re just another piece of meat for the corporate chew.
And when we wear you out we’ll find someone new

Your magazine role model innocence slips away. Gone tomorrow but worth a million today.
Sing a new song, and look pretty while you do your dance
You got the whole world waitin’ for you to
take-off your-pants

Put that face on… paint it up, fake it out
Put that skirt on… nice and high, that’s what it’s all about
Strut those legs long…. Make ’em sigh for your thigh
Turn those guys on… make ’em drool, suck ’em dry
