i'm in love with the toughest girl in the neighborhood
everytime I see her, i get afraid
'cause she treats me just like your average savior would
she don't give up her power, she always brings me flowers

we walk down 3rd street, hell's angels all marvel at her
and everytime she looks right through them,
she does me right, she knows what matters
and she proceeds to knock me out

i'm in love with the toughest girl in the neighborhood
underneath her cover, it's heavenly
and she holds me just like a baby's momma would
she stripped me of my power in the first half hour

she grew up catching fireflies
and i believe it's the same with guys
cause when i stand before her eyes
i am captured
she's my cleopatra jones

going out with the toughest girl in the neighborhood
i'm in love with the toughest girl in the neighborhood
