Where we live
spring comes early
Trees in bloom
when the northern country
is covered in snow

A windy fitful day in winter
charging toward the Ides of May
The climate now is cling to splinters
We hold hands while we work and play
and hope tomorrow is a sunny day

Where we live
men are women
Women are teenage boys
and everybody wants to look like them,
but be like men

A windy fitful day in winter
charging toward the Ides of May
The climate now is cling to splinters
We hold hands while we work and play
and hope tomorrow is a sunny day

Rubens would have loved you
and painted you that way
With your pen and paper,
paying quiet attention to a lady with a plastic face
So thin, so thin she might blow away

A windy fitful day in winter
charging toward the Ides of May
The climate now is cling to splinters
We hold hands while we work and play
A windy fitful day in winter
charging toward the Ides of May
The climate now is cling to splinters
We hold hands while we work and play
and hope tomorrow is a sunny day

    General CommentThis song is so funny in its play on our modern cultural standards of beauty. Men are supposed to look like women, and women are supposed to have the bodies of teenage boys. Rubens, however, was a painter back in the 1600s and all of his women were full-figured, but still gorgeous. I think it's about a man talking to his partner and kind of laughing at what's supposed to be beautiful, but finding his partner the most beautiful thing, in part because she's his companion through life.
