BandRock

If you're into energetic Rock'n'Roll from the land of Jesus, Moses and Gene Simmons - look no further. With eclectic references to Punk, New Wave, Metal, '60s Garage and '70s Hard Rock, THE GIRLS feel like a breath of fresh air as apposed to other bands, that suck.

Biography

We were good enough for NME, we supported Iggy and the Stooges, we come from Tel Aviv, we toured Europe 3 times, we pack light, we're far better playing live, we are the best rock band in the world right now and yes, we're not that arrogant, just being Jewish. We're currently completing our second LP.

Lyrics

Pervert

Written By: Sharon K.

Tell me how much is this worth
in money or in tears
How much will it cost
to see you striptease
Been watchin' your cute face
and your proud crowd-walk
Can you say some words
my jolly lolly pop

Endless present comes my way
all wrapped in used velvet
I appreciate your circle of friends
they talk to the pervert,
Talk to the pervert
Talk to the pervert
Talk to the pervert

Lions den

Written By: Sharon K

I'm gonna go for a ride
I'm leavin' my baby behind
I got 2 grams and a 6-pack
in your memory
Last night seemed quite alright
love and TV and holding you tight
now I will take what it takes to have no memory

the road gets dark
I can see your smile
Behind the clouds of catastrophe
There's no bruise no mark
Only sign of life
To finally replace philosophy
The road gets dark
I see you
dark
I see you

o-oh uh-oh
into the lions den
o-oh uh-oh
into the lions den
I come again

Eleanor said she'll be late
So I go up, I sit and I wait
Her husband is pretty
Too pretty for me
Two hours flight at this bar
Just remind me I won't get too far
Still I'll take what it takes to have no memory

the road gets dark
I can see your smile
Behind the clouds of catastrophe
There's no bruise no mark
Only sign of life
To finally replace philosophy
The road gets dark
I see you
dark
I see you

o-oh uh-oh
into the lions den
o-oh uh-oh
into the lions den
I come again
