"When I Was A Painter" as written by and Kim Deal....
In side lakes of Quarterly I've been
Heard stories of air velveteen
Twenty hours later I fill the room
With bad sex and bad TV

Go, go, go
Go, go, go

When I was a painter I painted you well
Too bad I have to die
You brought the essentials, perversion appeal
And many lovers at one time

Go, go, go
Go, go, go
On and on, on, on

In side lakes of Quarterly I've been
Heard stories of air velveteen
Twenty hours later I fill the room
With bad sex and bad TV

Go, go, go
Go, go, go
On and on, on, on

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "inside legs of courduroy I've been". Is it just me who's hearing it like that?

    General Commenti think you're right, it does sound like that, and it does make more sense.
    plus, i'm pretty sure the line is "heard stories of bare* velveteen". also i think she might be saying tea instead of tv, a friend and i have discussed this and we still aren't sure, but i'd like to believe that she says both.
