I'm telling you a story now
Of something that's wrong
This has been developing
Since nineteen eighty-one

Maybe she's alone
Maybe she's alone
What can i do?
What can i do?

There's nothing
There's nothing
There's nothing i can do

If I'm a proper jewish boy
Will her family love me?
Can't stand to see her on the stage
And know she's not thinking of me

Maybe she'll be hearing this
But probably she won't (probably she won't)
Possibly she has desires
But probably she don't (probably she don't)

There's nothing I can do

    General Commenti can totally relate to this song. Its about wanting someone (natalie portman in this case) soo bad but theres nothing you can do about it. Its a great tune by a great band.

    General CommentI love this song. . . at first the lyrics struck me as odd, especially the "If I'm a proper Jewish boy / Will her family love me?" This is by far my favorite Ozma song.

    General CommentOh man, I can relate to this song exactly. I mean, EXACTLY. I, too, love Natalie Portman. Or, I'm obsessed with her anyways. I know it's unrealistic and she's six years older than me and she's waaaay too beautiful for me, but I can't help but dream of her.
    So to help you out, Ars Musica, the line "If I'm a proper Jewish boy / Will her family love me?" is because Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem, Israel( isn't that so hott?), and she's of Jewish descent. So, if you want to get to Natalie, you have to make her parents like you too. Hope that clears it up. Also, in case any of you were wondering, in the first stanza it says :she's been developing since 1981", cuz she was born in '81. Kinda sad that I know all this off the top of my head.
    Well, Natalie's beautiful, that's all.

    General CommentThe lyrics are right, they don't say "She has been developing..." it says "This has been developing..." which implies that the problem has been developing, in otherwords, since she was born (and If I'm not mistaken, Daniel Brummel also born the same year.) So yeah...
