I've only ever seen her name on a spine
But that's enough, I want to make her mine

Never heard her voice, never seen her smile
But I'm in love with Saskia Hamilton.

Well she's a poet, just like I want to be
But her passport alone is great poetry
And I'm in love with Saskia Hamilton.

She got more assonance than she knows what to do with
I'm in love with Saskia Hamilton
She got two sibilants, no bilabial plosives

Saskia Hamilton, Saskia Hamilton. Yeah! Right!
Saskia Hamilton, Saskia Hamilton.
Saskia, Saskia, Saskia

Already got a girl but she sounds real bad
I'm in love with Saskia Hamilton
She got alliteration and her surname is Dagg
Saskia Hamilton

No hard consonants in my girl Saskia
Every single syllable sounds like Shakespeare
I'm in love with Saskia

Gonna live with her and it'll all be harmonious
How could it not be, when she's that euphonious?
Gonna marry her and it'll be idyllic
And my teacher just told me that she's dactylic!

Saskia Hamilton, Saskia Hamilton. Yeah! Right!
Saskia Hamilton, Saskia Hamilton.
Saskia, Saskia, Saskia

    General Comment:Just listen to the song and the lyrics and you can understand what it's about. I don't think it requires an explanation. If you watch the official music video, you can even see the definitions of some of the most interesting words in the lyrics. The meter of Saskia Hamilton is quite dynamic. It goes all over the map: 4/4, 2/4, 3/4, 5/4!
