Like A Love Song


Like a slimy white slug living under a stone
Like a fat repugnant king asleep on his throne
Like a mange-ridden dog chomping down on a bone
Well that's how I love you

Like a baby in a bathtub that won't do what it's told
Like a granny with rickets so feeble and old
Like a lukewarm beer that's supposed to be cold
Well that's how I love you

   That's how I love you
   Your sweet smile so full and true
   We're stuck together, stuck together me and you
   Just like a glob of hardened glue

Like a huge slab of gristle on a 6 oz. steak
Like that funny little tremor just before the big quake
Like a porcelin doll you just want to break
(Into a million pieces now)
Well that's how you love me

   And that's how you love me
   Just like a cat, a little cat caught in an old oak tree
   The branches swaying, yeah they're swaying in the coming storm
   He's feeling cold, but he's thinking warm

Like out of date butter on a slice of stale bread
Like that phrase I can't remember that your mother always said to me
Like the way a snake quivers even after it's dead
That's how I love you

   And that's how I love you
   Your sweet smile, oh yeah, so full and true
   We're stuck together, stuck together just like glue
   A juicy glob from me to you
