Stephin Merritt - del 3

The Nun's Litany

I want to be a playboy's bunny
I'd do whatever they asked me to
I'd meet people with lots of money
and they would love me like I loved you

I want to be a topless waitress
I want my mother to shed one tear
I'd throw away this old sedate dress
slip into something a tad more sheer

I want to be an artist's model
an odalisque, a naturel
I shoul be good at spin-the-bottle
while I've still got something left to sell

I want to be a cobra dancer
with Little Willy between my thighs
I may not find a cure for cancer
but I'll meet plenty of single guys

I want to be a brothel worker
I've always been treated like one
If I could be a backstreet lurker
I'd make more money and have more fun

I want to be a dominatrix
which isn't like me, but I can dream
Learn s and m and all those gay tricks
and men would pay me to make them scream

I want to be a porno starlet
(for that I'll wait 'till mama's dead)
I'd see my name in lights of scarlet
and get to spend every day in bed

I want to be a tattooed lady,
dedicated as I am to art
Characters bold, complex and shady
will write my memoirs across my heart
