Verse:

        E             A          E           A
Back in High School I knew a girl
        E             A          E           A
Not too simple and not too kind
   E         A  
We both grew up,
      E              A
But I heard she changed
       E        A  
From a new wave fan
     E           A
too another time

Chorus:

    E            A          E        A
She thinks she's Edith Head
Even though I know she's not
An accent in her speech
She didn't have growing up

It's been years since I've moved away, but at Christmas I come home
And I saw her reflection in the window of a store
She was talking to herself, not to simple and not too kind
I walked on by, it was complicated and it stuck in my mind

She thinks she's Edith Head
Even though I know she's not
An accent in her speech
She didn't have growing up

An accent in her speech
She didn't have growing up
An accent in her speech
She didn't have growing up

It was complicated
       F (hold)
And it stuck in my mind
