Lyrics:
I saw her, yea I saw her
With a black tongue tied round the roses
A fist pounding on a vending machine
Toy diamond ring stuck on her finger
With a noose she could hang on the sun
And point it out with the dark sunglasses
Walking crooked down the beach
She spits in the sand
Where their bones are bleaching

And I know I'm gonna make her die
Take her where her soul belongs
I know I'm gonna steal her eye
Nothing that I wouldn't try
My cyanide girl, hey
My cyanide girl
My cyanide girl, hey
My cyanide girl

I saw her, yea I saw her
With her hands tied back
Her rags are burnin'
Crawling out from a landfilled life
Scrawlin' her name up on the ceiling
Throw a coin in the fountain of dust
White noise, her ears are ringing
Got a ticket for my midnight hanging
Throw a bullet from a freight train leaving

And I know I'm gonna make her die
Take her where her soul belongs
I know I'm gonna steal her eye
Nothing that I wouldn't try
My cyanide girl, hey
My cyanide girl
My cyanide girl, hey
My cyanide girl
 
The Song:

What sticks out to me about Junior Senior's remix of "Girl" is how poppy it is. Until the end, anyway, when they add this interesting spazzy dance floor ending. The backing vocals throughout are a nice touch too. All in all, not a bad reconstruction.

This remix is sort of rare, I believe it was only available on the Japanese tour edition of Guero (even though there really wasn't a Japanese tour).
