Alice Donut – Lorelei & Henry lyrics
She had a face like a Conestoga wagon
Lumpish and fortified
Her real name was Mary Ann Bratton
Henry knew her as Lorelei

Henry’s head was shaped like a foot
Squinty eyes and a bookish look
Lori said he’d be cast as the teacher
Grim villain in an afterschool tween feature

They would go to the Melody Palace
See the latest Taiwanese film
They would sit up in the balcony
Eat gumdrops and dried squid

Then they’d hit the Chinatown dive bars
Meet old friends she just met
Sometimes she would leave with Henry
Sometimes she would leave with someone else

Don’t give me that face Henry
Don’t give me that face Henry
Don’t be grim Henry
Don’t be grim

Broken piers jutting out of the river
Gasoline glittering in the rain
They would walk without talking for hours
Along the ruins of the West Side Highway

Henry slept with her friend from Poughkeepsie
Last fling before she wed
Lorelei was passed out on Ouzo
They were on the other side of the bed

(whistling)

That was uncalled for Henry
That was uncalled for Henry
God that’s awkward Henry
God that’s wrong

We do everything the wrong way
We do everything the wrong way
