SPEEDY MARIE
Frank Black


Had a bit part

An endless reel

It always played in slo-mo

But now it's fast

A spinning wheel

I know the dynamo

My heart is cast


Speedy Marie

Ahead of the now

She's better built that's how

She's built for speed

Speedy Marie

Speedy Marie


Oh, yes indeed

I said to me

And so I sing this romaunt

It's not enough

My liberty

There is a thing I want

I need

I love


Speedy Marie

Ahead of the now

She's better built that's how

She's built for speed

Speedy Marie

Speedy Marie


Juxtaposed in each moment's sight

Everything that I ever saw

And my one delight

Nothing can strike me in such awe

Mouth intricate shapes the voice that speaks

Always it will soothe

Rarer none are the precious cheeks

Is the size of each sculpted tooth

Each lip and each eye


Wise is the tongue, wet of perfect thought

And softest neck where always do I

Lay my clumsy thoughts

She is that most lovely art

Happy are my mind, and my soul, and my heart.
