about

This is Ms. Crandle from our album, Drama Queen. We try to write songs about what we see in life. Young girls with dysfunction at home often end up with unrealistic dreams and expectations about relationships and life. This song is about that condition.

lyrics

Verse #1

You're dressed so sexy Ms. Crandle
You're wearing the oldest disguise
What are you looking for Ms. Crandle?
Something has caught your eye.

You think you're staring at salvation
with broad shoulders and electric eyes,
but you've misplaced your affection.
You need to turn it inside.

Chorus

Excuse me Ms. Crandle
but you're not equipped to handle
this grown up life that you think you want.
You're schoolgirl dreams are nice,
but they come at a heavy price.
So, be careful, be careful.
I think you're headed the wrong way.

Verse #2

You're looking desperate Ms. Crandle.
Your moment is slipping away.
And I know, and I know, and I know
you think it's never gonna come again,
but Ms. Crandle, tomorrow's another day.

Chorus

Excuse me Ms. Crandle
but you're not equipped to handle
this grown up life that you think you want.
You're schoolgirl dreams are nice,
but they come at a heavy price.
So, be careful, be careful.
I think you're headed the wrong way.

Bridge

No more teachers,
no more books
that's what makes you worry.
The future's coming fast enough.
Ms. Crandle, what's your hurry?

Chorus

Excuse me Ms. Crandle
but you're not equipped to handle
this grown up life that you think you want.
You're schoolgirl dreams are nice,
but they come at a heavy price.
So, be careful, be careful.
I think you're headed the wrong way.
