Alpha Cat: Music

Mona Lisa in a Comic Book

(Alpha Cat)
September 11, 2009
This tune will be on Venus Smile, and is about people who are bigger than they think they are, in the metaphorical sense...
He's a square peg, in a round hole

but no one would ever know

jams his long legs in the economy row

but you'll never hear him complain

He's a Jaguar in a Chevrolet

he's a jet plane in a double prop

he's a thousand thread count burlap bag

she's the ocean in a paper cup

He's a gold mine in a junkyard, so nobody digs him
she's an elevator on a slippery slope
but nobody's taking a ride

She's the heir to the throne on a Greyhound bus
he's the president of his own four walls
he's a masterwork in a paperback
she's mona lisa in a comic book

Chip away, make it fit, hit it a little bit harder

Make it fit, chip away, until there's nothing left

pay your respects to the man inside the bottle

he's doing the best that you'll let him

He's a bright light, in a dark room
but nobody turns him on
she's a slow fuse, in a tinder box
but nobody's found a match

he's a big fish in a small pond
has a high iq and a magic wand
he's a ticket to ride on a slow boat to China
so she doesn't know he's alive

he's an atom bomb in your cracker jack
she's a waterfall at last call
you can try to lend him sugar but he'll send it back
she's a daisy in a parking lot
she's a daisy in a parking lot
