Toss it all out in a fit of staged beneficence
Friends are all calling, “There’s a girl who’s lonely like you!”
A sweet au pair with irises of blue,
A TV stare inside her tennis shoes.

“I’ve got no money could you pay my way to the matinee?”
“I’ve just been told there’s a hole in the fence by the zoo.”
A daytime, summer, cinnapopping crew,
The crowd dispersed and all there were two.

As we both slept, the willow wept a tune,
The pavement came and took his friend last June.
Well I’d sleep outside in my good suit for you.

Ba ba bada, ba ba ba dah dum
Ba ba bada, ba ba ba dah dum

It seems so certain that my heart’s on track for shutting down,
It’s strange, off-kilter beat’s a circle a on the floor.
The hippies all left before you’d reached the door,
Forgotten what they started playing for.

But I cardio 8 times a week or more,
Make shakes with fig leaves, flax, and apple core.
A heart has never shook like this before,
Turn cartwheels from the 27th floor.
A stunt to please the girl that I adore.
