She's the one who put it in.

And I was afraid of a girl like that.

****Like the Buddha sat.****

A geographic memory.

Of turning s** into a song.

Take whatever you can grab.

Who left her mark upon the map.

And left me hanging by a strap.

That made grown men feel underage.

Said "I must go," but finally stayed.

Was shattered by her tongue one night.

Mimi brought the taboo back

And held it up before the light.

Was never ever satisfied.

Well Rhonda had a house in Venice,

Lived on brown rice and cocaine.

Shot cough syrup in her veins.

Filled it up with alcohol.

She didn't do that shit at all.

Turn it on and turn it off.

Like some French film-maker's plot.

Always kept her stockings straight.

Silver spoon and a paper plate.

Lean pristine transparency.

In a crazy kind of urgency.

While wearing leather biker boots.

Was for certain vegetables and fruit.

Took his money and his truck.

Perfect Norman Rockwell home.

Left her parents lived alone.

And changed her name to Bobbie-sox.

Sang songs about whales and cops.

Was just a nihilist.

She wrote songs just like this.

Drinking nothing but Perrier.

Into the San Francisco bay.
