Leave Me Alone

By: Michael Stevenson | Pas de Merde

At our family dinner at my sister’s, we sang the single most horrible song of the Seventies, which is Helen Reddy’s “Ruby Red Dress” – a singalong about a homeless woman who talks to herself and just wants to be left alone, due to the trauma she experienced as a younger woman.
Sing along, if you wish:

“Big ole ruby red dress wanders round the town
Talkin’ to herself now, sometimes sitten down
Don’t you get too close now, ruby runs away
Poor ole ruby red dress born on a sorry day
I can hear her say
Leave me alone, won’t you leave me alone
Please leave me alone now, leave me alone
Leave me alone, please leave me alone, yes leave me
Leave me alone won’t you leave me alone
