Well you said you were contemporary
(Though I'm not sure what that means)
And you said you were an item of lust
Well one of those choices resonates
And it's the one about sex
A song of joy's the only song you'll get
And the only time for servicing has been and went

You look art me with fucked-up eyes
And lead me back to bed
The strangers gone replaced with something well read

Well you said you weren't musical
(And I'm not sure how that feels
cos I'm socially obnoxious and inept)
And it's pretty far in my my mind's car
I'm mentally complex
A song of joy's the only song I get
And the only time is time enough to leave

You clear my mind like valium
(Or at least what valium'd feel like)
The stranger's gone replaced with real great dislike

Well I've songs of joy and rhythm
But I can't believe you'd feel like love
The stranger's gone, this song's gone on enough.
