Here she comes like a child with a gun 

She makes you feel like you're the only one 

She smiles and it's dangerous
In a little black dress
Superman and the filthy rich 

Get in the queue to scratch her itch

Sticky fingers pulling at the hem 

Of her little black dress

Baby, don't mind 

She can leave it behind 

She don't want anything 

Baby's a star
She's gotta keep on shining

She moves like an animal

The women sigh, it's political

You could get arrested 'round here

For the little black dress

Not so simple, it's complicated

All this being loved and hated 

I wanna know what else she's hiding

In the little black dress

Baby, don't mind 

She can leave it behind

She don't want anything 

Baby's a star
She's gotta keep on shining

Don't pay me no mind
You're gonna leave me behind


I don't want anything
Baby, you're a star

I wanna hear you sing

(This song features backing vocals by Bono and The Edge and can be found on the Gavin Friday album Shag Tobacco)
