What's the Use of Wond'rin'?

from Who Killed Amanda Palmer by Amanda Palmer



Featuring Annie Clark of St. Vincent


what’s the use of wond’rin’
if he’s good or if he’s bad
or if you like the way he wears his hat

oh, what’s the use of wond’rin’
if he’s good or if he’s bad
he’s your fella and you love him
that’s all there is to that

common sense may tell you
that the ending will be sad
and now’s the time to break and run away
but what’s the use of wond’rin’
if the ending will be sad
he’s your fella and you love him
there’s nothing more to say

something made him the way that he is
whether he’s false or true
and something gave him
the things that are his
one of those things is you

so when he wants your kisses
you will give them to the lad
and anywhere he leads you, you will walk
and any time he needs you
you’ll go running there like mad

you’re his girl and he’s your fella
and all the rest is talk
