Lyrics:

Don’t believe her when she says she’s sorry, boy
Don’t you listen to the things she says
She will hurt you any time she gets bored
Wind you up and treat you like a kid’s toy

Though her eyes are blue, her heart’s as black as night
Even if she’s wrong, she claims she’s always right
Don’t give in to any of her schemes
She always makes them brighter than they seem

Boys’ll think that she’s so fine
But her heart’s as cold as wine
As wine
As wine

When her tears are so impressive
She uses them to get the best
Of you
Of you

Curses things that other girls just wish they had
Praises all the things that are all so bad
Leave her now and hurt her with your exit plan
Hell will take care of this girl when it’s her time

Hell will take care of this girl when it’s her time
Hell will take care of this girl when it’s her time

  1. By 1968 the Brass buttons had no bass player. Bass was supplied by the organist. In addition the band had 2 sax players, a lead singer, a guitar player and a drummer. How do I know for sure? I have some photographs I took of the band in the Fall of 1968 at SUNY Oswego.

  2. The best song was the flip side called "My Song". I have looked all over but can't find it. I had the 45 as a teen.

  3. I have looked everywhere for the flip side of "Hell will take care of her"... I am looking for "My Song" on an mp3 format... If any one knows where I can purchase, I would be very grateful.
