She sat on the pavement As I pulled in the drive Wearing leopard skin velvet Shiny black eyes"She looks like a sleeper" Said my wife at the time She had curls like Delilah And a smile like the sunShe held my poor corpse Like she'd never be done And the caption in my mind said "This is the one"But I'm strong and I'm disciplined And I avoided her for years 'Til one night, as usual With my heart full of tearsA hand touched my back And she was standing right there And then I felt the luxury of her I felt the luxury of her I felt the luxury of her I felt the luxury, whispering, whisperingNow, I'll try hard to tell things just like they is How my life was a desert before she came in And wrecked it and ripped it and rubbed my nerves thinHow I liked to see her little feet pad around the house The way she curled up quietly on the couch I can still see her in my mind that way, now But I felt the luxury of her, I felt the luxury of her, I felt the luxury of herWell, time went by quickly And her confidence grew And she wanted this and that And she wanted those tooAnd she wouldn't shut up And one day, I just blew up Now, she's in the hospital For the second timeMaybe she'll die, maybe I'll cry Therapists would say "You're in denial" But love became inconvenientLove became a literal drag Very bad for business I'd be better off a fag She's a model de sport That I can't afford'Cause I'm a practical American From the Middle-West And I can piss on a grave While welcoming guestsIf cold's what I am I'm cold 'till the end And I felt the luxury of her I felt the luxury of herNow, I'm gonna continue walking In the modern world Which justifies every Egotistical perversion With scientific talk And new ways to walkBut I'll remember the religion She became to me And the other person I could have been So, for now, I'll say so longI gotta go do wrong I gotta go do wrong I felt the luxury I felt the luxury I felt the luxury, luxury Luxury, luxury, luxury
