Body Electric

Album: Born to Die - The Paradise Edition (2012)
  • Elvis is my daddy, Marilyn's my mother
    Jesus is my bestest friend
    We don't need nobody, 'cause we got each other
    Or at least I pretend

    We get down every Friday night
    Dancin' and grindin' in the pale moonlight
    Grand Ole Opry, feelin' alright
    Mary prays the rosary for my broken mind

    I sing the body electric
    I sing the body electric, baby
    I sing the body electric
    I sing the body electric
    Sing the body electric
    Sing the body electric
    I'm on fire
    I sing the body electric

    Whitman is my daddy, Monica's my mother
    Diamonds are my bestest friend
    Heaven is my baby, suicide's her father
    Opulence is the end

    We get down every Friday night
    Dancin' and grindin' in the pale moonlight
    Grand Ole Opry, feelin' alright
    Mary prays the rosary for my broken mind

    I sing the body electric
    I sing the body electric, baby
    I sing the body electric
    I sing the body electric
    Sing the body electric
    Sing the body electric
    I'm on fire
    I sing the body electric

    My clothes still smell like you
    And all the photographs say you're still young
    I pretend I'm not hurt
    And go about the world like I'm havin' fun

    We get crazy every Friday night
    Drop it like it's hot in the pale moonlight
    Grand Ole Opry, feelin' alright
    Mary swayin' softly, to her hearts delight

    I sing the body electric
    I sing the body electric, baby
    I sing the body electric
    I sing the body electric
    Sing the body electric
    Sing the body electric
    I'm on fire
    Sing the body electric

    I sing the body electric, baby
    I sing the body electric, baby
    I sing the body electric, baby Writer/s: ELIZABETH GRANT, RICK NOWELS
