Hey Carrie (PG)
04/07/05 - The first in the 'Slightly Esoteric Halloween Song' series. I wanted to write a song about the confidence of 10 year old girls and the nasty surprise nature has in store for them, then realized Stephen King had already made the movie version.

Hey Carrie
Don’t you know you’re growing up so fast
Hey Carrie
Shy and quiet now but it won’t last
Hey Carrie
Freakin’ out at bleeding in the shower
Hey Carrie
Don’t you know that you’re a woman now

Carrie
Do you want to be queen?
So you want to be queen?
Come on and be it
I’ve
Got a bucket of blood
Got a bucket of blood
Wait ’til you see it

Hey Carrie
Talking ’bout you all around the school
Hey Carrie
You know the other kids can be so cruel
Hey Carrie
Won’t you let me take you to the prom
Hey Carrie
You know that I would never lead you on

Carrie
Do you want to be queen?
So you want to be queen?
Come on and be it
I’ve
Got a bucket of blood
Got a bucket of blood
Wait ’til you see it

Now you’re gonna get the prom crown
Bucket comes a tumble-ing down
Everyone’s surprised to find
You’re moving objects with your mind
Burn the kids down in the hall
Pin your mamma to the wall
Make those crucifixes bleed
Carrie won’t you marry me?

Carrie
Do you want to be queen?
So you want to be queen?
Come on and be it
I’ve
Got a bucket of blood
Got a bucket of blood
Looks like it’s just what you needed

Hey Carrie
