What is your favorite kind of paper money?
And where will you dress in a gown like that?
How often do you point and laugh at others on the train?
Well my car is better than your ugly house and everything that you have ever owned!

And what is your dream for the future of plastics?
Where will you find your next source of magic?
How many love affairs can one have with a water pistol?
that is filled with rock salt to impress a girl like Jodie Foster!

Look at me, look at me changing in the green room
Oh just look at me! and ask me about me (just ask me about me)
In the kitchen and on the computer screen
Come on and touch me I will pluck you fantastic for love

Who is your favorite bucolic poet?
When will you sharpen your pocket knife?
How many dictionaries have you used to write love letters?
For everyone who had ever bought you presents and fresh flowers from 7eleven or someone else’s grave?

Chorus (once)

No one, no one loves you more than Jesus but he is busy watching television
No one, no one loves me more and not anymore and never again

Chorus (twice)
