Spill-tainted pages of poetic prophecy
Tickle my interest and taunt at my fantasy
Gentle new lover, favorite friend
With hidden desire that bothers my conscience again

Like Paul and Virginia!
Sit close to me on the swing
Like Paul and Virginia!
Sit close to me and I'll sing

I'll sing for you
With you
Oh, you
Cobalt blue vessels, clean same-sex rabbits

Old movie romance and a healthy new habit
Moving in passion, resting in reason
With a strong, tender poet who touches each region within
Like Paul and Virginia!

Sit close to me on the swing
Like Paul and Virginia!
Whisper my name and I'll sing
I'll sing for you

With you
Oh, you
Illuminations that shine on the river
Subliminal glances provoking a shiver

Palms full of mystery, fingers of magic
Greetings so glorious, partings so tragic
Like Paul and Virginia!
Sit close to me on the swing

Like Paul and Virginia!
Kiss me again and I'll sing
I'll sing for you
With you
Oh, you
