    Lyrics

    Magdalena sits in her chair
    Speaking on the mass
    She talks in splice and splinters
    She laughs not breaking glass

    She says that she would have me
    Spirit her away
    Stealing all my images
    Till there's nothin' left to say

    Oh, Magdalena
    Nothing like the saint you are
    Your love is like a razor
    My heart is just a scar

    Oh, Magdalena
    Nothing like the saint you are

    She tells me that she wants me
    Then she tells me not to bother
    She tells me that I couldn't hold
    A candle to her father

    She knows that she's got me
    When I start to rave about
    She'll just smile and flash her eyes
    And blow the candle out

    Oh, Magdalena
    Oh, Magdalena
    Nothing like the saint you are

    Magdalena lying there
    Could make a dancer stumble
    Make a preacher bite his tongue
    And leave him with a mumble

    And if you think I'm crazy, babe
    Or that I'm kiddin' you
    Just pay your dues and lose your blues
    When she gets her tongue in you

    Oh, Magdalena
    Nothing like the saint you are
    Your love is like a razor
    My heart is just a scar

    Oh, Magdalena
    Nothing like the saint you are

    Well, I can't be forgotten and I can't be ignored
    You find me with my poems and my songs
    But if upon your journey, you're returning to L.A.
    Won't you take this little red-haired girl along?

    Oh, Magdalena
    Nothing like a saint you are
    Your love is like a razor
    My heart is just a scar

    Oh, Magdalena
    Nothing like a saint you are
