I had a problem I made it go away
I had a psycheness I made it go away
Direct her affect her or rather correct her
I think the trouble is that they'd rather dissect her
I had a problem I'll make it go away

Celluloid your one true mother
Edison your loving father

I'm making progress I'm feeling self-assured
I'm making progress of that you are assured
Direct her affect her or rather correct her
I think the trouble is that they'd rather dissect her
I'm making progress I'm told I am assured

Celluloid your one true mother
Edison your loving father
Black and white tie formal dinner
Keep yourself from getting thinner

Mary Pickford Marry Me No other girl will do
It doesn't really matter that you're dead
Sets my heart a'flickering when I set eyes on you
Tungsten kisses showering your head
Mary Pickford Murder Me No other girl will do
Join our hands in sickness and in death
we're all quite sane
quite sane

    General CommentThe song talks of Mary Pickford who was a silent movie star that was forgotten about when films went to sound. Celluloid being what films were printed on and Edison being the father of the moving pictures. The line about tungsten kisses is referring to the type of flash bulbs that were used in cameras in the early 1900's. The rest of the song is just showing Mr.Sterling slipping into mental illness. I am just happy to see other people still remember this band.
