Laurie Anderson – Smoke Rings lyrics

Standby. You're on the air.
Buenos noches Senores y Senoras. Bienvenidos.
La primero pregunta es: Que es mas macho.
Pineapple o knife?
Let's Iee. My guess is that a pineapple is more
Macho than a knife Si! Correcto!
Pineapple es mas macho que knife.
La segunda pregunta: Que es mas macho

Lightbulb o schoolbus?
No! Lo siento. Schoolbus es mas macho que lightbulb
Gracias. And we'll be back in un momento.

Well I had a dream and in it
I went to a little town
And all the girls in town were nomed
And they were singing:
Doo doo doo doo doo.
Doo doo doo doo doo.

Ah desire! It's
Cold as ice
And then it's hot as fire.
Ah desire! First it's red
And then it's
And everytime I see an iceberg
It reminds me of you.
Doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo
Que es mas mocho iceberg or volcano?

Get the blanket from the bedroom
We can go walking once again.
Down in the bayou
Where our sweet love first began.

I'm thinking back to when I was a child-
Way back for when I was a tot.
When I was on embryo-
A tiny speck. Just o dot.
When I was a Hershey bar-
In my father's back pocket.

Hey look! Over there! It's Frank Sinatra
Sitting in o chair. And he's blowing
Perfect smoke rings
Up into the air. And he's singing:
Smoke makes a staircase for you
To descend. So rare.

Ah desire!
Ah desire!
Ah desire! So random So rare
And everytime I see those smoke rings
I think you're there.
Que es mas macho staircase or smoke rings?

Get the blanket from the bedroom
We can go walking once again.
Down in the boondocks
Where our sweet love first began.

Ooo I'm gonna follow you.
Out in the swamps and into town.
Down under the boardwalk
Track you down.

Doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo
