"Bluestocking" as written by and Nicholas John Currie....
I love you
You're so well read
Blue stockings
Well spread
Your carnal knowledge knocks me dead

I love you
You're so well read
Bluestocking
Give head
I love you, you've read:

Ovid, Anais Nin, the Song of Solomon,
The Perfumed Garden
& Georges Bataille's The Story of the Eye,
Petronius Satyricon,
The Arabian Nights, Decameron
The Marquis de Sade's "120 Days"
& Serge Gainsbourg singing songs to Sweet Jane B

I love you
You're so well read
Blue stockings
Well spread
Your carnal knowledge knocks me dead

I love you
You're so well read
Bluestocking
Give head
I love you, you've read:

Sacher Masoch & DHL
Portnoy's Complaint & mine as well
Frank Harris, The Life & Loves,
Lusts of a Moron, Wings of a Dove,
The Latins of the Silver Age,
The triolets of Paul Verlaine,
Lautreamont & G. Cabrera Infante
Mishima Yukio & Sweet Jane B

I love you
You're so well read
Blue stocking
Give head
Whisper what they said:

'Le silence de la chambre est profond
Aucun bruit n'arrive plus
Ni des routes, ni de la ville, ni de la mere
La nuit est a son terme, partout limpide et noir
La lune a disparu
Ils ont peur
Il ecoute, les yeux au sol
Son silence effrayante
Il parle de sa beaute
Les yeux fermees
Il peut revoir encore l'image dans sa perfection'

    General CommentAn amazing reading list in a slightly naughty song.

    The last bit in French is, I believe, from the Georges Bataille book.

    "Lusts Of A Moron" is the first collection of Momus' own lyrics. Who wouldn't look a woman who's read one's one work?
