Well they chased her
Down the alley
And over the hill
To steal her away
She was as hot as
Georgia asphalt
When the A team came
To adore her brain

So leave Virginia alone
Leave Virginia alone
She's not like you
And me
She's not like you
And me

You should've seen her
Back in the city
Poetry and jewels
Broke all the rules
She was as high as
A Georgia palm tree

So Leave Virginia alone
Leave Virginia alone
She's not like you
And me
She's not like you
And me

Some sunny day
When the h... of times have
Gone farewell
You'll understand
Why it was so hard
To run away
To run away
She's a loser
She's a forgiver
She still finds good
When no one could
You want her
More than money
Cadillac can rust
Diamond and dust

Ah, yeah
Leave Virginia alone
Leave Virginia alone
She's not like you
And me
She's not like you
And me
Ah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah ,...
La, la, la, leave her alone
Oh, Virginia
Oh, Virginia
Leave her alone

    General CommentParaphrased poetry ...

    Dazzled by the untamed,
    Electric aurora resplendent, persuaded me to adventure
    On an August night
    Vast-terrible and pure
    I love you with immeasurable aching …

    Without questioning the red jacket of the stars
    The heart descends with a light leap
    Kissed me on the face and the grotesque and the enormous
    May the Nobel Prize be given to the chemist who will discover better than this.
    The heart burns while the oxen stare
    Some throw oranges
    The red arched palace laughs through its great portico
    Like Niagara Falls

    General CommentPleasant as the odorous month of May
    As glorious as light of day

    Whom I admired as soon I saw
    And now her memory I pursue
    With such a superstitious lust
    That I could fumble with her dust

    Pretty she was and ageless and wise
    And in her calling—so precise
    Thumper went and made their dove
    The sucking school mistress of Love

    And Life ambitious to become
    Her pupil—left his ghastly home
    And seeing how we used her here
    The raw-boned rascal ravished her

    Chuck Cotton (paraphrased)

    General CommentI am Lyric—I am free
    A polar wish gave birth to me glittering one winter night
    My heart makes love in the wall of atomic submarines
    Glittering my name is whispered in nautical steamers
    Presidents love me as they love their best captains winter nights
    I glitter
    I look them all in the hearts
    Thunder booms in the icebergs
    I am also a very northerly totem pole winter nights
    When I go to sleep with my glitter
    I throw three witches on the floor
    They utter low shrieks
    They come back again. I love my glitter
    But also like the witches
    I fill their bellies with all my tales
    We puzzle, decipher, encipher
    Six translators—forty-two book reviewers
    I drank coffee and was still the same person

    [paraphrased poetry]

    General CommentAh, Virginia … Written by Petty and recorded by Rod Stewart, Virginia surely was hot as Georgia asphalt or the aircraft wouldn’t have come to adore her brain. In this story, we play the aircraft—let your imagination run wild—and since Virge isn’t like you and me, she’s quite the loner. Like the poetry, Tom? Thought you might… and all them perspectives… virtual jewels … She said she hopes to hear more about that sunny day someday. Alas, she is a loser. She does like to think the best of people ….

    General CommentWe're all amused over the "Cadillac can rust" description--whatever that is, she says and we'll take it. Hmm... how does Cadillac rust behave? The diamonds and dust are a given.
