Artichoke

What are you thinking he said
These thoughts are mine she said
Lets go to bed he said Fine she said
You’re mine she said
Wrong he said, but let’s have a good time
She touched him instead
And a smile was said
ooohhh it was a good time

Peel away the leaves
Pull them through your teeth
Each one till it’s clean
And eat the heart
Peel away the leaves
Pull them through your teeth
Each one till it’s clean
And eat the heart

Where are you going he said
To the mountains she said
With who he said – just a friend
Well I don’t like him he said
Why not she said – cause he’s in my life he said
and a poem was read
Well it’s good she said, now let’s go to bed
he held her instead, and a tear was shed
chorus

There’s a book that he read that he recommends
She was putting on her coat, and collecting her head
Her lips were red, her heart was bled
When ya coming back he said
Monday she said
But the skin was shed
Heavy like lead
The skin was shed
She was looking for a good time

Peel away the leaves
Pull them through your teeth
Each one till it’s clean
And eat the heart
