“I Want to Be the Boy to Warm Your Mom’s Heart” by White Stripes from Elephant
It’s not like what it sounds
Because even I can see how that implies inappropriateness abounds.
I just want her to like me
So you she’ll let me see.
Because right now I feel discarded like those single gloves in all those lost and founds.
I promise when I said she was fine,
I wasn’t angling for her to be mine.
You’re the one I love
Who before all else I place above
And that’s all I was going to say when I invited her out to dine.
Which brings us to the kiss
Wherein her forehead I did miss
Who did I end up affixed to her breast?
Yes, that was a bit messed.
But for real, that was not about my bliss.
So, in conclusion, I was just trying to get in her good graces
Please stop making those faces
The sex only happened now and then
And that was the first time in your den
I understand you are angry, but perhaps you could stop spraying me with so many maces?
