Floodlights & Sequins Lyrics - Margo King


[Verse 1]
Hair's up higher than a warbler's nest
Can't get no mail with no address
Speedin' tickets, bookmarkin' magazines
Ten things he'll love in bed and nice face cream
It takes all night to look this good all day
Why punch the clock when there's another way?

[Verse 2]
Hey there, babe, you got a hell of a mouth
No one makes 'em quite like they do in the south
Let me buy you dinner, show you a good time
Vodka soda with a twist of lime
Now he's bleedin' on the pavement under nеon signs
Yeah, it pays the bills if you do it right
[Chorus]
Mama always said how to get it donе
Break his heart with a kiss, take the money and run
Fingernails painted, gettin' fingerprints stamped
Lookin' good in black, dodgin' the blue and red
Livin' the lowlife, streakin' them highlights
It's bangs and break-ins, floodlights and sequins
Bangs and break-ins, floodlights and sequins

[Verse 3]
Wants to be seen, but can't be caught
Wearin' dollar-store lipstick on the boss man's yacht
In-between the caviar and chardonnay
Tyin' off the bight in her lingerie
Shame he couldn't wait until the crème brûlée
Now he's floatin' face down outta Mobile Bay

[Chorus]
Mama always said how to get it done
Break his heart with a kiss, take the money and run
Fingernails painted, gettin' fingerprints stamped
Lookin' good in black, dodgin' the blue and red
Livin' the lowlife, streakin' them highlights
It's bangs and break-ins, floodlights and sequins
Bangs and break-ins, floodlights and sequins

[Bridge]
Never let 'em see you sweat
Yeah, there's a spray for that
Never let em see you cry
It'll ruin that smokey eye
Yeah, never let him take it again
Yeah, that's called revenge

[Chorus]
Mama always said how to get it done
Break his heart with a kiss, take the money and run
Fingernails painted, gettin' fingerprints stamped
Lookin' good in black, dodgin' the blue and red
Livin' the lowlife, streakin' them highlights
Livin' the lowlife, streakin' at midnight
It's bangs and break-ins, floodlights and sequins
Bangs and break-ins, floodlights and sequins
Bangs and break-ins, floodlights and sequins
Bangs and break-ins, floodlights and sequins
