A Girl Named Tex
Have you heard the story of
A girl named Beth, now known as Tex
Her life's tale is a bloody trail
Her name fits like a glove

Her daddy sighed as she slammed the door
She'd said to him I'm Beth no more
My life's dream is to kill for green
But first I'll join the Corps

Her daddy said, you're just a girl
What makes you think that you won't sink
My name is Tex and I'm like a hex
My playground is the world

Now basic turned her gun to gold
Soon had it made, she'd hit by trade
Amassing kills, she proved her skills
Make your blood run cold

Now I once saw texas at a bar
Sippin rye, with some apple pie
With a distant stare, like she didn't care
She said what's with the guitar?

I must admit my lips went numb
Some butter bar said, his face all red
She's too good, you're driftin wood
Said boy you'd better run

Texas said sir keep your peace
My heart is free, and so is he
I'll give it to, any man who's true

He drew before he replied
But Tex was hot, and he was not
And he lay dead, While texas bled
Crimson on her side

Yellow of rose of Texas clad in black
Lonely star tattooed upon her back
Double Tex, she'll hit you like a truck
And double Tex and she'll fuck you up

Now Texas said
She said something
And her one need, I did heed
I think of Beth, while mocking death
Like a mocking bird
A Girl Named Tex

Martha performance was so killer on this song that you might forgive Nico for screwing up the lyrics. His own lyrics. What a jerk.
