Dance Hall Girls (A. Fraser) These dance hall girls, they don't treat you kind They give you their bodies, you never reach their minds Well, they fill you up with lipstick lies When they put you down some, don't ya be surprised Is this the way it always is, here in Baltimore? Well, I saw her mountains, and I kissed her plains I held her sunshine, and I drank her rains Well, I went so far, that I broke too fast Thought I had a winner picked, but I came in last again Is this the way it always is, here in Baltimore? (CHORUS) (Repeat from here) I must have chosen the wrong season to come down I never realized they call this sacred ground. My sense of time, hell, I'm a week behind I sent me a letter home but this all takes time. [first ending] Gonna get some cash, gonna go back home These dance hall girls really know how to make a man feel alone is this the way it always is, here in baltimore? [second ending] Gonna get some cash, gonna blow this town These dance hall girls really know how to drag a poor boy down Is this the way it always is, here in Baltimore? Is this the way it always is, here in Baltimore? The song was originally written and performed by Fraser & Debolt, a male/female duo from Canada that was recording around the late 60s-early 70s. The song is fr om an album called "Overnight Sensation." GG Oct01
