The Decemberists – Philomena lyrics

[Verse:]
Oh, Philomena, are you in a tawdry gown
Lean to your window, let slip a ribbon down
A cure to your boredom, if only you'll let me go
Down, down down
Long sunny days can lead to lazy vices
Boys all at idle, left to their own devices
Open up your linen lap and let me go
Down, down down

[Chorus:]
All I ever wanted in the world was just to live to see a naked girl
But I found I've quickly bored, I wanted more, I wanted more

[Verse 2:]
So I'll be your candle and I'll be your statuette
I'll be your lash and loop of leather and dark
Philomena, if only you'll let me go
Down, down down

[Chorus:]
All I ever wanted in the world was just to live to see a naked girl
But I found I've quickly bored, I wanted more, oh, so much more

[Verse 2:]
So I'll be your candle and I'll be your statuette
I'll be your lash and loop of leather and dark
Philomena, if only you'll let me go
Down, down down
