To Woody Guthrie, Ingrid Bergman, and Mandy

You burn me up with desire, cast a spell over me.
That's why I'm smiling like I do.

My love's cumming in handfuls, you've shaken this tree.
Can it be that I'm a fool for you?

Take me to your studio, make your art of me,
My clay is ready to mold.
My body is a canvas, take every liberty.
I ain't too young, you're not too old.

Don't want to dance with your daughter.
I want to get close to you.
Just like that book by Nabakov

I'm your pupil at the front of the room,
Waiting for your leg to cross over your knee.
I take every lesson that you give to me.
I go home and pay with my body.

Who am I kidding? I can't dance a lick,
But my smile is half the key.
If that's the truth let me unlock your heart.
Can it be that you've seduced me.

'Til they laid poor Jessie in his grave ...
