Potentially Really Lovely

One of us is too old
I’m not sure if it’s you or me
But I think the calculation is
Multiply times two and divide by three
You look like a woman
Who likes her men dressed from Saville Row
But I’m down at the second hand
With the five-finger discount to go
But we could be, potentially, really lovely

I’ve never been one for fashion
I’m not up on the latest fads
I’ve always had a thing for wearing
Polka-dots with plaids
You drink Pousse Rapier Royales
And I drink spo-dee-o-dee wine
But I think I got a concoction
That will make you feel just fine
And we could be, potentially, really lovely

In the secret parts of fortune
Where the wasp wears its sting
Is it in the tongue or in the tail?
I’ll take a little bit of everything

You can quote Nietzsche, Freud, and Marx
All I got is Chuck Berry
But I think he’s got the whole thing covered
On love’s philosophy
Nothing in the world is single
Take a look around and see
In each other’s being mingle
How about you and me?
We could be, potentially, really lovely
