Met a cute guy a couple of times.
His birthday's coming up, so I wrote a mildly twisted celebratory birthday song.


Words & Music by Amy Denio, 11/25/12

You tilt my sluice gates open
Gravity pulls down and heat beats up
those popping kernels of yen and ken curdled and ungirdled
Unfurled and girly burly
Didn't know the sluice was loose
Till you tipped it over

Sluice is loose Il'l chase a moose
and duck duck goose you're it
to kiss a missing masseuse - or is that masseur, Monsieur?
Je voudrais un masseur, Monsieur.

You tilt those sluice gates all awry
But don't you cry about it
Nothing's slipped or spilt or built to a T
Cause there's no alphabet yet
cause we fly with the jet set
neurons firing hot and het
well met and let us wander around in wary circles

Duck duck goose chase down the hatchling nest of thieves as thick as thieves would want to be.
Duck duck goose the hound had howled and growled, slipping then from one pair of crossed arms to the other
Duck duck goose near sighted date doubts turned to music and our hilarious ley lines crossing
Ley lines crossing our legs and picking out a melody of irony

You tilt my sluice gates open
bruised juice cruises loose
the ruse of Zeus in a hike-a-poose
unfurled and girly burly
didn't know my sluice was loose
until you tipped it over.

You tilt my sluice gates open
our effusively deducted goose chase wildness
winterness, wildness, wilderness wildness
in my mind (in her mind)
