Jennifer Lies
Jennifer turned seventeen
Going on thirty
Caught the eye
Of the man next door
No harm in flirting

She could see him
In his den at night
Never drew the curtain
She could feel him watching her
She was absolutely certain

Jennifer's an A student
Every parent's prize
Jennifer is nearly perfect
There's just one small problem
Jennifer lies

Jennifer was quite amused
At her neighbor's invitation
He'd stayed behind to work
Wife and kids were on vacation

She had seen the look he had
Lots of times before
His eyes were nearly begging her
As she glided through the door

Was innocence lost
Or merely reduced
Who was seducer
and who was seduced

Jennifer was unprepared
For the wife and kids arrival
Amid the angry shouts and tears
She planned her own survival

Insisted it was all his fault
That he took advantage
She had tried to push him off
But it was more than she could manage

Short Song Description:
A "perfect" teenager who isn't so perfect.
Long Song Description:
A "perfect" teenage girl who isn't so perfect after all destroys the neighbors' marriage.
Story Behind the Song:
No story really. I was just thinking about how young women use the power of their attractiveness sometimes without a thought about the consequences to themselves or others.
