Patty Griffin – Alex Chilton lyrics

If he was from Venus
Would he feed us with a spoon?
If he was from Mars,
Wouldn't that be cool?
Standing right on campus
Would he stamp us in a file?
Hangin' down in Memphis all the while

Children by the million
Sing for Alex Chilton
When he comes 'round
They sing "I'm in love
What's that song?
I'm in love with that song"
Cerebral rape and pillage
In a village of his choice
Invisible man who can sing
In a visible voice
Feeling like a hundred bucks
Exchanging good looks face to face
Checkin' his stash by the trash
At St. Mark's place

Children by the million
Sing for Alex Chilton
When he comes 'round
They sing "I'm in love
What's that song?
I'm in love with that song"

I never travel far
Without a little big star

Runnin' round the house
Mikey Mouse and the Tarot cards
Falling asleep with a flop pop video on
If he was from Venus
Would he meet us on the moon?
If he died in Memphis, wouldn't that be cool?
