38-Special
(E.J. Geel)

Birthday number 38
It means as much to me as a hair lock out of place
I’ve invited everyone to see
That I’m as smart as I look
The dress may be a little tight but the lipstick’s right for
Kisses and philosophy

What’s the surprise you have in mind?
A porcelain dog or a box of incense sticks
Or a necklace with a heart of stone
Or will you just bring in the air form outside?
Don’t bring anything, bring even less if you like
But try to be alone

Or will you bring your new lover on my birthday?
You’ll bring your new lover on my birthday
Don’t bring your new lover on my birthday
For I might not survive, I honestly confess
The sight of you and her in the bliss of dreariness

You will drag her in by her willing little hand
And she will gaze around the room with innocent eyes
And then you’ll whisper something explicit in her ear
Later on tonight she’ll be asleep on the couch
And you will join me in the kitchen and that’s when I
That’s when I’ll ruin the atmosphere

By saying exactly what I think when you ask me
What I think of her, that she’s a pretty girl, but
She’s a damn meager trade
And you’ll defend her with the fierceness of those who Are in love and can’t tell a real diamond from a fake
So won’t you make that silly move

Of bringing your new lover on my birthday
You’ll bring your new lover on my birthday
Don’t bring your new lover on my birthday
For I might not survive, I reluctantly confess
The sight of you and her in the bliss of happiness

So she’s supposed to be the ideal girl
Who’s always in for anything you want
Never opposing your boring plans
Without opinions of her own
Oh oh ooh…..

Solo

You’ll bring your new lover on my birthday
Don’t bring your new lover on my birthday
For I might not survive, I reluctantly confess
The sight of you and her in the bliss of dreariness
