Written by Kara Suzanne

lyrics

It's not what I want to do boys
It's not what I want to do
I can't spend every little minute of this old life
Not doin' what I want to

I met a woman downtown sporting London Fog
She told me putting myself down is like back-handing God
And do you have some change to spare?
I said Mother, if only!

It's not what I want to do boys
It's not what I want to do
I can't spend every little minute of this old life
Not doin' what I want to

I met a man on a bridge in a sleeping bag
He told me to shut my mouth tight if I got nothin' nice to say
And do you have some change to spare?
I said Father, if only!

I met a cousin in a bar it was lit up red
He told me we could all be one if it wasn't for our heads
And do you have some hope to spare?
I said Brother, in spades!

about

Kara Suzanne Woodstock, New York

Part sullen cowgirl, part seductive cabaret singer and all soulful folk-rock songstress. Kara bewitches audiences with her original songs that are simultaneously heartbreaking and carefree. She's this generation's answer to Dolly Parton and Patty Griffin.
