She played "Summertime" on the brothel piano
And she sang along in some language I didn't know
Then she said, "Play me something, c'mon, make it snappy
But make it upbeat, make it happy"
It's like she knew all my dreams by heart

We sipped warm white wine from polystyrene cups
She wore a necklace made from poison-tipped safety pins
She said, "I just love all your romantic talk,
Your Hawaiian shirt and your John Wayne walk"
And she whispered all my dreams by heart
Then she slipped upstairs to her blindfolded lover
