The Book Of Love In The City Of The Dead

Drinking rum and Coca-Cola
Go to Point Cumana
Both mother and daughter
Working for the Yankee dollar

“Rum and Coca-Cola”
quoted in Democracy, Whiskey, Sexy! — 1945 Version
(I fixed the lost links)

Then one day things weren’t quite so fine
I fell in love with Lily
I asked my dad where Lily I could find
He said, “Son, now don't be silly
She's been dead since 1929”
Oh how I cried that night

“Pictures of Lily,” Pete Townshend
quoted in Pictures Of Lily As A Zombie

The cars, the cars— The cars want to enter
the parking lot because the parking lot
is the parking lot of the donut shop.

The sign says “Do Not Enter” but the cars
want to enter. The cars want to enter
the parking lot that way. Right past that sign.

The cars, the cars— There are people in them
and there is something in that parking lot
just like there are people driving those cars.

People get in cars and get out of them.
What is in the donut shop parking lot?
And I wonder, wonder— Does it get out?

Chapter One says to love her
You love her with all your heart
Chapter Two you tell her you're
Never, never, never, never, never gonna part
In Chapter Three remember the meaning of romance
In Chapter Four you break up
But you give her just one more chance
