"She Belongs to Me" as written by and Arthur/giosasi Zwirn....
She's got everything she needs, she's an artist
She don't look back
She's got everything she needs, she's an artist
She don't look back
She can take the dark out of the nighttime
And paint the daytime black

You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees
You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees
But you'll wind up peeking through her keyhole
Down upon your knees

She never stumbles, she's got no place to fall
She never stumbles, she's got no place to fall
She's nobody's child, the Law can't touch her at all

She wears an Egyptian ring that sparkles before she speaks
She wears an Egyptian ring that sparkles before she speaks
She's a hypnotist collector, you are a walking antique.

Bow down to her on Sunday
Salute her when her birthday comes
Bow down to her on Sunday
Salute her when her birthday comes
For Halloween give her a trumpet
And for Christmas, buy her a drum

    General CommentFunny how you can hear a song for 30 years and it might mean not much. or different things at different times.

    This song recently found its way into my playing rotation, here's my current take, perhaps relevant to some current experinces.

    Yup, he idolizes, and that means objectifies the woman, and after a bit this gets a bit tired for everybody, and he's history, the walking antique.

    Point to me is, what happens when you put a woman on a pedestal; it does nobody any good. You idealize her and give her superpowers to make you miserable or elated, and nobody should hold that power over you but you.

    Close relationships function best when folks want to learn to know each other, not worship each other and depend on them for taking away the dark and bringing the light.

    my .02, subject to change , of course YMMV :-))
