Lyrics:

Aphrodite won't let me live my life in peace
I fall in love with every cute girl that I meet
The spirit of Sappho is alive inside of me
The spirit
Sappho, hope I've made you proud
Made you proud by now
I've been trying for years
It's been a whole lot of tears
If I'm honest

I wish I could tell you some
I wrote this song for Louise Nevelson, the sculptor,
Also Billie Holiday, and a group of kick-ass women artists.

Sappho was a poet
Billie was
And Sappho's calling me, and Sappho screams to me to come on, come on

She's that, and she's knocking, knocking down my front door
She could rock you, Oh, she
a cherry hue
Read me poems of Sappho
And never say "I love you"

Oh, to close my eyes, basking in the sun with you
Delicate touches, and a picnic by the sea
Who can tell me if we have heaven,
Who can say the way it should be;
Moonlight holly, the Sappho Comet,
Angel's tears below a tree. 

You talk
and believe me, eau
Sophocles, also Sappho-ho
Unless you know Shelley and Keats and Pope
Dainty Debbies will call you a dope

But the poet of them all
Who
As Madam Sappho in some sonnet said
A slap and a tickle
Is all that the fickle
Male ever has in his head

Most gentlemen don't like love
I've been in love
better get out of there dear (get out of there)
I was hiding all away

Alright yeah!
Alright yeah!

You searched through all my poets
From Sappho
stood at full salute
Later on we smoked a pipe that struck me dumb
And made it impossible to speak
As you closed in, in slow motion,
Quoting Sappho
stood at full salute
Later on we smoked a pipe that struck me dumb
And made it impossible to speak
As you closed in, in slow motion
Quoting Sappho, in
better get out of there dear (get out of there)
I was hiding all away

Alright yeah!
Alright yeah!

You searched through all my poets
From Sappho
stood at full salute
Later on we smoked a pipe that struck me dumb
And made it impossible to speak
As you closed in, in slow motion
Quoting Sappho, in
you from the ways that evil says "I love you"
Every time you take a breath, the simulation's breathing too

You read Sappho beating her deep sea drum
was the place where adolescent boys were educated, and molested
This was accepted because Greek culture was homosexual
For example, Sappho trained girls
and believe me, eau
Sophocles, also Sappho-ho
Unless you know Shelley and Keats and Pope
Dainty Debbies will call you a dope

But the poet of them all
Who
Kings and Queens in our tableau
Cutting dashing figures in our chateau 
Thank god I was hit, Cupid's arrow
Let me sing your praises like Sappho 
Love
the fiery way
Sappho, Perpetua, Kali, Hekate
Syncopate incubation, thirty-five days
Close the book on the testimony, wash the past away
Aurora borealis,
Woe upon us in these terrible times
Sappho, I swear, I am forced to leave you

This was my reply: please go joyfully
And always remember the way you
pride
In entourage swines

Servile
Docile
Portrait of Sisyphus

You won't call thy name
But serve the venom of god
Yours is the unctuous cult of Sappho
you'd eclipse me
Live and die in your shadow

Superlunary
Sweet celestial honey
A well that's ever giving
Even Sappho would envy

Superlunary
Superlunary
on we smoked a pipe that struck me dumb
And made it impossible to speak
As you closed in, in slow motion,
Quoting Sappho, in the original Greek

She moves
to get out of there, dear, hiding all away

You searched through all my poets
From Sappho through to Auden
I saw the book fall from your hands
As you
with a lot of religiosity 
But Sapphos fueled in her a poetic streak 
You know what I mean 
She played the good girl 
She was the prom queen... 
Coveted
