I know who wrote the book of love
It was an idiot
It was a fool
A slobbering fool with a speech defect and a shaking hand
And he wrote my name
Next to yours
But it should have been David Byrne or somebody
Who They Mention:
musician/producer/artist David Byrne

Tattered rags that hangs on nails reminds me
You the mistress of your chair
I the sergeant of your hair - you blind me
You turn me on like light
A liquid silver light

Italian Film Director Federico Fellini

Superman, superman, crunchy little superman
Found you in a Corn Flakes box
Nourished you in privacy
Touched the parts you couldn't reach
You improved immediately

It cramps your handwriting, and dulls what little style you have
You casdt your mind back to professionals like Alan Breeze
Who see the windows freeze and hand around the keys
"Unlock yourself!", he says, but no one ever does
Who They Mention:
singer Alan Breeze
