The Civil War: All In One

   She Came In Through The Bathroom Window
by John T. Marck



She Came In Through The Bathroom

This song by Paul was inspired by an actual event. One day while he was away from his St. John's Wood home, some teenage girls, known as Apple Scruffs, broke into his home. Although there were several in this group of girls, only one, later saying out of boredom, using a ladder, propped it up to the bathroom window, and got inside. She then opened the door for the others. There were two types of "Apple Scruffs" -- those that broke in and those that waited outside with cameras and autograph books. One such girl who eventually got to know Paul well as friends, would even walk his dog from time to time. Her name was Margo Bird. During this break-in, the girls took some of Paul's clothes, as well as some photograph's and negatives. One of the photos was a favorite of Paul's, a color-tinted photo of him in a frame from the thirties. Wanting this back, he appealed to Margo, who knew the culprits, and got it back for him. It was lucky, as when she located it, most of the other items taken were on their way to America. Paul describes the event beautifully in this song. The girls, being juveniles, by age, were then protected by the "silver spoon." His phrasing of Sunday on the phone to Monday, Tuesday on the phone to me, is Paul's take where the neighbors who saw the break-in were calling each other, and him, to report it. Quite a catchy tune, and one of my favorites!

Oh Look Out!

She came in through the bathroom window,

Protected by a silver spoon

But now she sucks her thumb and wonders,

By the banks of her own lagoon

Didn't anybody tell her, didn't anybody see?

Sunday's on the phone to Monday,

Tuesday's on the phone to me

She said she'd always been a dancer,

She worked at fifteen clubs a day

And though she thought I knew the answer,

Well I knew, what I could not say

And so I quit the Police Department,

And got myself a steady job

And though she tried her best to help me,

She could steal, but she could not rob

Didn't anybody tell her, didn't anybody see?

Sunday's on the phone to Monday,

Tuesday's on the phone to me, Oh yeah
