Lisa | Mike Dorsey

Lisa’s got a compost in her pocket,
and a locket on a chain, as the rain washes over me
and it’s a dream to be seen with a clover leaf
and what’s more it’s a quarter, so get close to me

And Maddy’s got a dead rat in a casket,
in a basket full of corks with a record player needle
and I know nothings gone sour since I seen ya
and it’s a dream to be seen with your gardenia

Mary’s got a coaster with a lobster,
and a morning glory vine, and the leaves are turning yellow
and in the winter I will be a warmer fellow
with a fire-haired Mary and a billow

Listen to “Lisa” here

Mike Dorsey writes songs — including the lyrics published above — and performs them with The Impossible Shoelace.
