Sunday song.

I’ve recently made friends with a Nice Catholic Girl, and the name in religion she chose at her confirmation was ‘Hedwig’, after the owl in Harry Potter.

Lyrics…

On nights like this
When the world’s a bit amiss
And the lights go down
Across the trailer park
I get down, I feel had
Feel on the verge of going mad
And then it’s time to punch the clock

I put on some make-up
Turn on the tape deck
And put the wig back on my head
Suddenly I’m Miss Midwest Midnight Checkout Queen
Until I head home
And I put myself to bed

I look back on where I’m from
Look at the woman I’ve become
And the strangest things seem suddenly routine
I look up from my Vermouth on the rocks
The gift wrapped wig’s still in the box
Of towering velveteen

I put on some make-up
Some LaVern Baker
And pull the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I’m Miss Beehive 1963
Until I wake up
And I turn back to myself

Some girls, they got natural ease
They wear it any way they please
With their French flip curls
From perfumed magazines
Wear it up, let it down
This is the best way that I’ve found
To be the best you’ve ever seen

I put on some make-up
Turn on the eight-track
I’m pulling the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I’m Miss Farrah Fawcett
From TV
Until I wake up
And I turn back to myself

Shag, bi-level, bob
Dorothy Hamill do,
Sausage curl, chicken wings
It’s all because of you
With your blow dried, feather backed
Toni home wave, too
Flip, fro , frizz, flop
It’s all because of you
It’s all because of you
It’s all because of you

(okay…everybody…)

I put on some make-up
Turn on the eight track
I’m pulling the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I’m Miss Punk Rock Star
Of stage and screen
And I ain’t ever
I’m never turning bac
