The Night That Minnie Timperley Died

Pulp

"There's a light that shines
on everything & everyone.
And it shines so bright - brighter even than the sun".

That's what Minnie thinks as she walks to meet her brother,
who is nearly two years older, on a Saturday night.
He's DJ-ing at some do on the edge of town
on the night that Minnie Timperley died.

It's such a beautiful world,
you're such a beautiful girl.
So much that you want to try,
the world wants to sleep with you tonight.

But Minnie, Minnie if I could
I would give you the rest of my life.

How can a girl have sex
with these pathetic teenage wrecks?
Football scarves, the girls drink halves
& her brother's crying 'cos he has lost his decks.

Outside the air was cool,
an older guy sitting in his car asked
if Minnie needed a ride.
He thought he was still dangerous
- paunchy, but dangerous -
on the night that Minnie Timperley died.

It's such a beautiful world,
you're such a beautiful girl.
And he only did what he did
'cos you looked like one of his kids.

But Minnie, Minnie if I could
I would give you the rest of my life.
Minnie. Oh, Minnie I can feel the pain.
Oh yeah
