My Baby Loves a Bunch of Authors

Well you should see my story-reading baby, you should hear things that she says

She says "Hon, drop dead, I'd rather go to bed with Gabriel Garcia Marquez"

Cuddle up with William S. Burroughs, leave on the light for bell hooks

I been flirtin' with Pierre Burton 'cause he's so smart in his books

 

I like to go out dancing

My baby loves a bunch of authors

My heart's so broke and bleedin'

Baby's just sittin' there doin' some readin'

 

So I started watching some TV, played my new CD player too

She said "Turn it off or I'll call the cops, and I'll throw the book at you"

All this arguing made me get dizzy, called my doctor to came have a look

I said "Doctor, hurry!" She said: "Don't worry, I'll be over when I finish my book"

 

I like to go out dancing

My baby loves a bunch of authors

We've been livin' in hovels

Spendin' all our money on brand new novels

 

So I got myself on the streetcar and it drove right into someone

The driver said: "I was looking straight ahead!" but he was reading the Toronto Sun

So my honey and me go to a counsellor to help figure out what we need

She said: "We'll get your love growin', but before we get goin' here's some books I'd like you to read"

 

I like to go out dancing

My baby loves a bunch of authors

Lately we've had some friction

'Cause my baby's hooked on short works of fiction

 

So we split and went to a party, some friends my girl said she knew

But what a sight 'cause it's authors night and the place looks like a who's who

 

Now I'm poundin' the Ouzo - with Mario Puzo

Who's a funny fella? - W.P. Kinsella

Who brought the cat? - would Margaret Atwood?

Who needs a shave? - he's Robertson Davies!

 

Ondartje started a food fight, salmon mousse all over the scene

Spilled some dressing on Doris Lessing these writer types are a scream!

 

I like to go out dancing

My baby loves a bunch of authors

We'll be together for ages

Eatin' and sleepin' and turnin' pages

    Lovely, cc! This looks so much like it's two consecutive frames from a film strip.
