Songs: College Girls One Step Above the Street

I wear my eyes parenthetically
Like right upon my sleeve
Copper and Green with filigree
It’s difficult to see

Verdigris it’s called in Rome
Gris Gris at the Louvre
Cooked up it spells L-O-V-E
Love in any language

Like the sway of trees
The songs of Mr. Porter
A potion of mercury
Laced with longing

Like a country at war
It’s awful and proud
A swell bunch of guys
Dying to pleas
And a Sweetheart
Crying in the window
And dogs barking and
Fire upon the wind
A swell bunch of guys
Dying to please
And a Sweetheart
Crying in the window and
Dogs barking, and fire upon the wind…fire upon the wind

Verdigris it’s called in Rome
Gris Gris at the Louvre
Cooke up it spells L-O-V-E
Amor in any language
Like the sway of trees
The songs of Mr. Porter
A potion of mercury
Laced with longing
Like a country at war
It’s awful and proud
A swell bunch of guys
Dying to please
And a sweetheart, crying at the window
And dogs barking + fire upon the wind….fire upon the wind

And dogs, dogs, dogs, dogs barking on the wind
Dogs, dogs, dogs, dogs barking on the wind….
