Dan Bern - Girls Showing Up in Pairs

Song Lyrics

Kathy and Susie were strippers
Who came to my gig in Boston
Two weeks later
They came to my gig in Nashville
I hung out with them
After each one and we
Had a good time each time,
But they didn't strip for me
Would have been in bad taste to ask 'em
Or was it in bad taste not to?
I'm not certain what the rules are
In this sort of thing...

Why are girls showin' up showin up?
Why are girls suddenly showin' up?
Why are girls showin' up in pairs?

Bethann and Georgina were students
Who came to my gig in Northhampton
I'm not sure why they keep coming round
They're the mixed signal champions
I like them
They like me
I mean isn't this every guy's fantasy?
Part of me says no
Part of me says go
And they both seem to keep the other one
Away from me

Why are girls showin' up showin' up?
Why are girls showin' up
Why are girls suddenly showin' up in pairs?

After the gig we went to sleep
In separate beds
Sometimes I think God must be mad at me
For not unwrapping His presents
The other day I went to the swimming pool
There were two girls in the lane next to me
They were splashing and laughing
And jumping on each other and I thought
Man, I can't get away from it
I can remember clear clean the garage
And while I'm out there I can use a massage
And know that four hands are better than two

Why are girls showin' up showin up
Why are girls suddenly showin' up
Why are girls showin' up in pairs
