about

A tale of the last-of-breed, broke-the-mold person everyone's met before, in the form of a woman you're both attracted to and scared of at the same time, brought to you with folk-punk riffage accompaniment.

lyrics

"She's A Dodo"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

When she looks at you she smiles so deviously, she’s a dodo
When you meet her you fall in love immediately, she’s a dodo
She’d get away with murder, if looks could kill, she’s a dodo
She aims to please, with impressive skill, she’s a dodo
She’s perfectly built, but a little bit dense
Why every guy wants her? It makes perfect sense
She’s a symbol of obsolescence, she’s a dodo

She’s a bird of a feather, wants to flock together, she’s a dodo
Out lookin’ for action, can’t get no satisfaction, she’s a dodo
Her head’s in the clouds, and she talks too loud, she’s a dodo
She’s the ultimate flirt, smokin’ hot in a skirt, she’s a dodo
She loves to walk on the wild side
Livin’ like she knows it’s near the end of the line
Every night a different guy, she’s not likely to thrive, she’s a dodo

She rules the dance floor, dresses like a cheap whore, she’s a dodo
Always looks bored, and she always wants more, she’s a dodo
She gets too high, but she’s never sure why, she’s a dodo
She’s one of a kind, but so easy to find, she’s a dodo
She wasn’t made to fly or last
But until she goes extinct, she’s livin’ life fast
Thinks it’s ‘69 at the Whiskey A-Go-Go, she’s a dodo

She’s a chick who dug me, then she drugged me, she’s a dodo
She believes in free love, kind of looks like a dove, she’s a dodo
Walks from fling to fling, ‘cause she ain’t got wings, she’s a dodo
Outdated and endangered, but to her no one’s a stranger, she’s a dodo
One chromosome short of achieving flight
She’s down to earth, but her future’s not bright
Far out, right on and out of sight, she’s a dodo

She’s a bird, but she cannot fly, she’s a dodo
She’ll break your heart, and you’ll never know why, she’s a dodo
Her kind won’t survive, but she’s still alive, she’s a dodo
Lives like a hippie from another time, she’s a dodo
Evolution can be so cruel
She comes from an island with a bad gene pool
Someday they’ll learn about her in school, she’s a dodo

She's a dodo
