Transgressive Anne

She came to the town of Cavendish
Where they grow the potatoes and catch the fish
An orphan girl with freckles and red hair
Feelin' lonesome and full of care

Ya know she's good
Cuz she's cute
But she ain't a boy
So she don't suit

Lived with Matthew and Marilla
He don't speak
She's a gorilla

What to do?
HUH HUH
What to do?
HUH HUH

She hit the kitchen to bake a cake
(Bein' a girl, and all that...)

Grabbed the ingredients offa the shelf
Threw it in the oven
Proud a her self

Company's comin'
Minister's wife
After the cake
Nearly lost her life

Transgressive Anne
HUH HUH
 (repeat)

Went to school, golden rule
Trouble with Gilbert
Little fool!
Stuck her pigtail in a well
She told him to go to hell
Took her trusty writing slate
Brought it down hard on his pate

Transgressive Anne
HUH HUH
 (repeat)

Hangin' with Di one afternoon
Lookin' around, nothin' doin'
What's that bottle on the shelf?
Marilla said just hep yur-self

WE DID

Diana she just liked it fine
She kept drinkin' all that wine

SHE GOT PISSED

Transgressive Ann
HUH HUH
 (repeat)

Girls they dream of love some time
Think they are Evangeline
 [Sorry, Anne, wrong province!]
Almost had her final sleep
Floatin' on the briny deep

Transgressive Anne
HUH HUH
 (repeat)

Ain't no girl act like this
Fightin' boys and gettin' pissed
Gotta be a proper miss
After all, she gonna be

A TEACHA

Academic Anne
HUH HUH
 (repeat)
