there’s aggression in the air this morning
got your ballerina tights around my head
in a samurai pose on the bed
vanessa from queens

and the water dripping from the faucet
is like mardi gras on the twelfth of june
why don’t you let me let me let me love you
vanessa from queens

i've got the right to fly
i'm gonna show you the time of your life
i got the rights to fly
so give it up right then now x2
what about

well the avenue is in a panic
bob packwood wants to suck your toes
such a lovely lovely lovely way to go
vanessa from grecia that’s right

do you today wipe that body
keep the elements off with a smile
and never have to work another day
vanessa from queens

i've got the right to fly
i'm gonna show you the time of your life
i got the right to fly
so give it up right then now x2

    General CommentThis song is a perfect reproduction of a 70's AM gold tune. It's got a light, early summer or early fall, airy, sort of urban populist Sesame Street New York tube tops and tube socks going to work in the morning or coming home from the office stepping over potato chip wrappers and streams of water from stripped fire hydrants kind of vibe. Oooh - that's right!

    General CommentI believe in the fourth verse, it's "vanessa from gresham" not "grecia," whatever that even means...

    General CommentBob Packwood was a Republican senator from Oregon who's political career ended in the mid-nineties after he was accused of sexual assault by no fewer than 29 women. The song alludes to the life of a trophy wife, but takes on a contrastingly darker tone when paired with this little tidbit.
