about

Share some cheap champagne
When you're seventeen
You know what I mean

Once the fuse is lit,
There's no getting rid
The fire will be burning

You could kick me in the jaw,
Hurt my ma and pa,
And sell me to the law, my baby

You could hit me where it hurts
Walk me to the church
And leave me on the altar

You
I'm such a fool for you
There's nothing I could do
to change that

Living on your own,
Happy where you are
You told me in the car

Me, I'm happy too
The world is such a thrill
Even when it bites you

You could take me for a ride,
Incinerate my pride,
I'd still be satisfied, my baby

You could kill me for a loan,
Incinerate my home,
And auction off my bones, my baby

You
I'm such a fool for you
There's nothing I could do
to change that

Now
The sun is coming down
The horn across the water makes the sweetest sound
I wish that I could meet you in some other town,
some other frame of mind

I'm such a fool for you
There's nothing I could do
to change that

about

John Shakespear Somerville, Massachusetts

It’s early spring in the mid 1960’s, and a drifter drifts into a bar. It’s raining lightly outside, but the air coming in from the street isn’t cold. He orders a black coffee and opens an old book.
