"A little bit... Tower of Pisa whenever I see ya"



Cigarettes and chocolate milk
these are just a couple of my cravings
everything it seems I like's a little bit stronger
a little bit thicker
a little bit harmful for me

If I should buy jellybeans
have to eat them all in just one sitting
everything it seems I like's a little bit sweeter
a little bit fatter
a little bit harmful for me

And then there's those other things
which for several reasons we won't mention
everything about them is a little bit stranger
a little bit harder
a little bit deadly

It isn't very smart
tends to make one part so broken-hearted

Sitting here remembering me
always been a shoe made for the city
go ahead, accuse me of just singin' about places
with scrappy boys faces
have general run of the town

Playing with prodigal songs
takes a lot of sentimental valiums
can't expect the world to be your raggedy andy
while running on empty
you little old doll with a frown

You got to keep in the game
maintainin' mystique while facing forward
I suggest a reading of 'a lesson in tightropes'
or 'surfing your high hopes' or 'adios kansas'

It isn't very smart
tends to make one part so broken-hearted

Still there's not a show on my back
holes or a friendly intervention
I'm just a little bit heiress, a little bit irish
a little bit tower of pisa whenever I see you
so please be kind
if I'm a mess

Cigarettes and chocolate milk

"Life is beautiful on The New York Times"




Mas o destaque também podia ser: "Always travelling, but not in love / Still I think I'm doing fine". Ou ainda: "Men reading fashion magazines / Oh what a world". É o que acontece quando o talento é imenso, quando as canções são belíssimas e as letras tão boas que é difícil escolher um só verso. Felizmente, não é preciso.
