  • When I was a young boy
    I had a lot of young boys
    And we taught each other dearly how to love
    Oh dearly how to love

    Now that I'm an old hag
    All I got's are things that sag
    But it really ain't so bad
    No it really ain't so bad

    Look at the neighbors with their long blond hair
    Makin' their money at the Renaissance fair
    They live under your dress in a massengilic mess
    Singin' klang bang wang
    I swear

    The neighbors will hear you
    The neighbors will hear you
    The neighbors will hear you
    The neighbors will hear you

    A glass eye tends to the garden in your breast singin'
    Mama you're a dog too dull to bite
    My love's central sun
    Hides her bells in emptiness
    I hung the hangman
    And I ain't afraid to fight

    But he's gonna get me
    He's gonna get me
    He won't forget me
    He's gonna get me

    Well steal my face I do declare
    This might be a start of a new affair
    I'm gonna braid exotic birds in your hair
    How can I tell
    'Cause I see wildfire everywhere

    All my thoughts are hairs
    On a wild wild boar
    Runnin' slowly down the lilac slope
    We're tryin' not to scare
    The sweet prairie hogs
    As we descend on them like vultures through the fog
    We're vulpinous vultures
    We're elegant armchairs
    We're vulpinous vultures
    Give heals time to wound as we lazily spoon
    Bend me over bend me back my bow
    And take a little sniff
    And I'll grant you every wish
    Glue my belly to your gibbous rainbow Writer/s: DEVENDRA BANHART
