  • I turned stranger into starman
    In the Sunday New York Times
    Like Anne Sexton with her star rats
    Working backwards, till it rhymes

    For the love of God, you can't tell me again
    For the love of God, you can't tell me again

    With a pencil and eraser I've rewritten all your crimes
    I turned stranger into starman
    In the Sunday New York Times Writer/s: Aimee Mann
    Publisher: Downtown Music Publishing
