Laurie Anderson – Let X=x lyrics

I met this guy - and he looked like might have been a hat check clerk at an ice rink. which, in fact, he turned out to be. and I said: oh boy. right again. let x=x. you know, it could be you. it
Sky-blue sky. satellites are out tonight. let x=x. you know, I could write a book. and this book would be think enough to stun an ox. cause I can see the future and it's a place - about 70 miles
Of here. where it's lighter. linger on over here. got the time? let x=x. I got this postcard. and it read, it said: dear amigo - dear partner. listen, uh - I just want to say thanks. so...thank
Anks for all the presents. thanks for introducing me to the chief. thanks for putting on the feedbag. thanks for going all out. thanks for showing me your swiss army knife. and uh - thanks for l
G me autograph your cast. hug and kisses. xxxxoooo. oh yeah, p.s. I - feel - feel like - I am - in a burning building - and I gotta go. cause I - I feel - feel like - I am - in a burning buildin
Nd I gotta go.

    Originally when Laurie Anderson first released "Let X=X" for new wave radio, the original version had ended with some of the most beautiful lyrics she has ever written. After she says "cause I - I feel - feel like - I am - in a burning buildin Nd I gotta go." She adds, "It's a days work just looking into your eyes. It's a days work just looking into them..." Very few people have ever heard the first original version for radio. It's awesome. I'm still looking for it.
    The song is brilliantly funny. It needs no explanation. Just "Let X=X."
