Josephine Lyrics

Artist: The Magnetic Fields
Album: The Wayward Bus

If I were Napoleon, you could be my Josephine
We could go to drive-in films in my red convertible
If I were Napoleon, I might be in magazines
I'd write some science fiction - science fiction about you
You could be my Josephine: just you and your chaperone
Let you be my Josephine, Josephine
If I were Napoleon, you could be my lady love
Look into my soft blue eyes
Run your fingers through my hair
If I were Napoleon, you could be my turtle-dove
Living out in Corsica in our summer cottages
And you could be my Josephine and we could be Siamese twins
Let you be my Josephine, Josephine

this song is awesome!

That it most certainly is. I especially like the implied rhyme on the 'run your fingers' line...

I really like how it's a woman singing, and the gender roles are reversed. That is one of my absolute favorite things about Stephin Merritt's work.
