Cover Songs: "Lori Meyers" NOFX cover by Eddie Booze



Lori Meyers used to live upstairs
Our parents had been friends for years
Almost every afternoon we'd play forbidden games
At nine years old there's no such shame

It wasn't recognition of her face, what brought me back 
was a familiar mark as it flashed across the screen. 
I bought some magazines, some video taped scenes.
Incriminating acts; I felt that I could save her.

"Who the hell are you to tell me how to live?
You think I sell my body; I merely sell my time.
I ain't no Cinderella, I ain't waiting for no prince
To save me in fact until just now I was doin' just fine.
 
And on and on...
I know what degradation feels like
I felt it on the floor of the factory
Where I worked long before, 

I took control!
Now I answer to me.
The 50K I make this year will go anywhere I please.
Where's the problem?"
