lyrics

She Photoshopped my face into a picture that she’s seen,
It was so true-to-life, but I was never in that scene
And now I face the judge who’ll say he’ll throw away the key
Her photo manipulation skills have destroyed all my dreams

We were together for a time, it was butterflies and roses
She accumulated pictures of my face in many poses
She slapped my head on someone else, the skin tones they did match
And now I’m stuck up in a cell with a lonely iron latch

I encouraged her to take some night classes for her health
At the local community college, put a diploma on her shelf
But she used them skills of hers to make it seem like I was there
Standin’ over her dead lover with a knife, a smile, and no care!

So I’m facing 20 years with not one chance of parole
I guess I’ll write some letters, try to clear things with my folks
And maybe my attorney will someday do his job
When he finally leaves my baby—that two-timin’ dirty slob!

I encouraged her to take some night classes for her heath
At the local city college, add a skill under her belt
But she used them skills of hers to make it seem like I was there
Standin’ over her dead lover with a knife, a smile, and no care!

She Photoshopped my face into a picture that she’s seen,
It was so true-to-life, but I was never in that scene
The shady ways of that dame made the shell of man I am
It’s plain to see that ‘PSD’ for me stands for “Pretty Sly Diane”!
