The first time I saw you standing in the water
You must have been all of a thousand feet tall
Nearly naked - unashamed like herod's daughter
Your love was so big
It made new york look small

You've been the subject of so many dreams
Since I climbed your torso
Oh!
My statue of liberty
Boo boo
Impaled on your hair
What do you do
Do do to me
Boo boo

I leaned right over to kiss your stoney book
A little jealous of the ships with whom you flirt
A billion lovers with their cameras
Snap to look and in my fantasy
I sail beneath your skirt
