Long Legged Lover
©1990 Andrew Calhoun, recorded on Hope.
I wanna thank my long legged lover,
And she'd thank me, I suppose;
I wanna thank that long legged lover,
Who sewed me a new suit of clothes.
That old suit was so ill-fitting,
Too thin to keep me warm;
With flaws in the size and the stitching,
To bind a changing form.
Maybe it was my mother,
Maybe my angry wife;
Who sewed that suit so tight on me,
I couldn't get it off myself.
This new suit is so damn pretty,
I can't believe it's mine;
Ain't that temptress a beauty,
And don't the emperor look fine.
