Yo La Tengo - I Wanna Be Your Lover

Well, the rainman comes with his magic wand
But the judge says, "Mona can't have no bond"
The walls collide, Mona cries
And the rain man leaves in the wolf man's disguise

I want to be your lover, baby, I want to be your man
I want to be your lover, baby
I don't want to be hers, I want to be yours

Now, the undertaker in his midnight suit
Says to the masked man, "ain't you cute!"
Madman he gets up on the shelf
And he says, "you ain't so bad yourself"

I want to be your lover, baby, I want to be your man
I want to be your lover, baby
I don't want to be hers, I want to be yours

Well, Jumpin' Judy can't go no higher
She got bullets in her eyes, and they fire
Rasputin he's so dignified
He touched the back of her head an' he died

I want to be your lover, baby, I want to be your man
I want to be your lover, baby
I don't want to be hers, I want to be yours

Well, Phaedra with her looking glass
When she lays upon the grass
She gets all messed up, she faints
That's 'cause she's so obvious and you ain't

I want to be your lover, baby, I want to be your man
I want to be your lover, baby,
I don't want to be hers, I want to be yours
