AS A BOY


As a boy I would stand

in awe of the sight of the band

criss and crossing the land,

the lights and the clapping of hands


As a boy, as a boy, as a boy

I see things

As a boy, as a boy, as a boy

I see things


And I'm throwing pennies

that belong 

to the bank of your heart,

the bank of your heart

I wish it could be mine


Later on as a man

I'm doing the best that I can

I imagine your lips,

my hands on the side of your hips


As a boy, as a boy, as a boy

I see things

As a boy, as a boy, as a boy

I see things


And I'm throwing pennies

that belong 

to the bank of your heart.

the bank of your heart

I wish it could be mine...


IN LOVE


Picture you naked 

with a pen and an eraser

and a piece of paper

down by the equator


Hopping atop the backs 

of giant alligators,

rifling through craters, 

I work as a waiter


So I would wait up

till the streetlights luminated,

our bodies gyrated

neon entertainment


And I'll keep some for now

and save the rest for later,

rumbling radiator,

peaceful gladiator....


You're my baby, you're my baby

You're my baby, you're my baby

You're my baby, you're my baby

You're my baby

I sing cause I'm in love


Undress you in my mind

and press your breasts to my chest

our arms intertwine, yeah

I can feel your caress


A game of pick up sticks

with sweet and sultry whispers

You're rubbling on my whiskers,

I'm blowing on your cinders


And we can laze all day,

trade kisses in the park, yeah

till long after dark, yeah

kindling and spark, yeah


And it's a great big world 

and there's no way around it,

I've been looking for a cure

and just maybe I found it


You're my baby, you're my baby (x3)


You're my baby

I sing cause I'm in love


Picture you naked

with a pencil and some paper

and a new eraser

down by the equator


And I would shiver

I would shake and I would grin, yeah

You tell me that I'm thin, yeah

but it's the skin I'm in, yeah


Shimmy down your street

till I reach your apartment,

dance across your floor

and waltz across your carpet


And it's a great big world

and we all stand atop it, 

Love is the glue

that keeps all of us from falling off it


You're my baby, you're my baby (x3)


You're my baby

I sing cause I'm in love


You're my baby, you're my baby (x3)


You're my baby

I sing cause I'm in love...


I sing cause I'm in love
