“Ladies of Cambridge” (“Boston”)

17 September 2010

Chestnut Park on a Saturday night,
Mystical boys feelin’ alright.
Raggedy wisdom falls from my hand,
As the ladies of Cambridge know who I am

I’ve had dreams of Boston all of my life
Chinatown between the sound of the night
But if you leave, I just don’t think I could take it
Take it
Take it
Take it

Graveyard freaks, we’re fallin’ in style.
Lady’s the pharaoh, Charles is the Nile.
That’s a museum, classical place–
Stones of your fathers standin’ today

I’ve had dreams of Boston all of my life:
Chinatown between the sound of the night.
But if you leave, I just don’t think I could take it
Take it
Take it
Take it

I’ve had dreams of Boston all of my life
Chinatown between the sound of the night

‘Cause when you left my room
To go to the kitchen,
I imagined that you were dead.
A morbid steak runs through
the whole of my family,
but for you, I could put it to rest.

But if you leave, I just don’t think I could take it
Take it
Take it
Take it
