Kicked in the Butt by Love

from Folk Remedy

You set my lips on fire
Youre my little buffalo wing
I'm strapped to the engines of desire
When you love me my ears ring
I am overwhelmed by
Your capricious hug
Thats how I got
Kicked in the butt by love

I felt like Don Pardo
On Saturday night
You were Bridgette Bardot
Wearing something tight
You got in my car though
The moon did wane above
And I got
Kicked in the butt by love

Clyde and Warren Beatty
On a wild tiger hunt
You were Marcia Brady
When you called yourself a cunt
My blood ceased to circulate
When you gave me a shove
Thats how I got
Kicked in the butt by love

Lonely in a brothel
The professors throat did freeze
The clientele was hostile
And the women on their knees
When the waif who just worked weekends
Whispered youre not all that tough
Thats when I got
Kicked in the butt by love

A chess match on a foreign couch
A ritual a rite
A sigh of passion a sigh of ouch
Bathed in MTVs light
Memories of the junior prom
Rupture and ooze up
And can get you
Kicked in the butt by love

A bushman on safari
Called back to the mother ship
Almond eyes in the Kalahari
Pelvis pressing hip
Unholy communion
So tender and so rough
Can get you
Kicked in the butt by love

The blues come from the delta
Said Santiago in his boat
Shivering as I knelt there
Hating every song I wrote
I begged for some forgiveness
With your thigh against my throat
Thats when I got
Kicked in the butt by love

Called back to New York again
Crying in times square
Get me Jack Kevorkian
And a double dog dare
In love with Andrea Dworkin
Rears a rage thats really rare
And can get you
Kicked in the butt by love

Well, morning means memorial
For a night of passion past
Silence seems sartorial
So you say you had a blast
Never has a fire
Consumed a soul so fast
As one that has just been
Kicked in the butt by love

Now a hobo intellectual
Searches for paradise lost
While Milton weeps to Adam
And Eve hangs on a cross
If Gods so fucking omnipotent
Why does he answer just because
When you ask him how you got
Kicked in the butt by love
