statue of liberty lyrics – joe jackson

the first time i saw you standing in the water
you must have been all of a thousand feet tall
nearly naked – unashamed like herod’s daughter
your love was so big
it made new york look small

you’ve been the subject of so many dreams
since i climbed your torso
my statue of liberty
boo boo
impaled on your hair
what do you do
do do to me
boo boo

i leaned right over to kiss your stoney book
a little jealous of the ships with whom you flirt
a billion lovers with their cameras
snap to look and in my fantasy
i sail beneath your skirt

/ joe jackson lyrics
