Soft spoken, no token man or boy
When she goes to the disco
She doesn’t like the noise
You’ve seen her read Rilke in German
Oh, of course she would!
You’ll make her misunderstand
You’re misunderstood

You know she listens to the mayfly
I know you’re looking for a way to be a mayfly too

She wants love, you offer infatuated dreams
She’ll toast you and post you
Her treatment for the screen
Bore meets girl, bore loses
Girl, you’re the one who chooses every time
She’s clever, she’ll never
Say “I’m going to make you mine“

You know she listens to the mayfly
I know you’re looking for a way to be a mayfly too

You want to change her so you won’t want her
A senseless suitor, to want to make her weaker

You’ve seen her read Rilke in German,
Oh, of course she would!
You’ll make her misunderstand
You’re misunderstood

You know she listens to the mayfly
I know you’re looking for a way to be a mayfly too
