Wow and Flutter

from by Thrifty Astronaut



Fill the bathtub with concrete mix. Sit down in it, and wait for it to fix. Maybe I'll just stay here forever; You'll watch me wow and flutter, shake and shutter. Sometimes all my thoughts run together, and I think that I should know better than to be your lover.

We danced the waltz in the electric June. You smiled so pretty under the 100-watt moon, and I thought that maybe I could glue us together, or you know whatever. I'm too tired to be clever. Baby, you make me wow and flutter; My heart melts like butter; My tongue sticks and stutters.

It doesn't make much sense anymore these days.
