Lyrics

I don't invest in stocks
I don't invest in bonds
Who needs real estate when I got you
You're my platinum blonde
With your spandex on
My pot of gold at the Rainbow Room

When the neon lights stop shining
I see you like a silver lining

You're my, precious metal girl
My best friend in the world
Look like you could have been in Faster Pussycat
In your leather jacket
With the patches on the back
You're my precious metal girl

All the kings and queens
When they explore the seas
They were searching for a gem like you
The battles lost and won
With the L.A. Guns
For the Aqua Net in your hairdo

When the neon lights stop shining
I see you like a silver lining

You're my, precious metal girl
My best friend in the world
Look like you could have been in Faster Pussycat
In your leather jacket
With the patches on the back
You're my precious metal girl

I don't need to mine
As long as you're mine
The sun sets on Sunset but you still shine
You still shine, 'cause

You're my, precious metal girl
My best friend in the world
Look like you could have been in Faster Pussycat
In your leather jacket
With the patches on the back
You're my precious metal girl
