My Narrow Man

Tall and pretty in skinny blue jeans
You’re the kind of boy I’d like to be
Your kiss is sweeter than fizzy pink wine
You look better in my fishnets than me
My narrow man
My narrow man

Tall and graceful with bambi brown eyes
Audrey Hepburn’s got nothing on you
Your smile is a splinter and I’ll pull you close or
The winter might snap you in two
My narrow man
My narrow man

And your sweet smiling shadow is the lighter half of me
And I am the marrow to your bone
So come and wrap your lovely lamppost legs around me
And I’ll carry you home, I’ll carry you home

Tall and brave in your Welsh army coat
That has General Jones spitting teeth
Light as a feather, you’ll fight to the death
To defend your poetic belief
My narrow man
My narrow man

And your sweet smiling shadow is the lighter half of me
And I am the marrow to your bone
So come and wrap your lovely lamppost legs around me
And I’ll carry you home, I’ll carry you home

Tall and pretty in skinny blue jeans
You’re the kind of boy I’d like to own
My fine-tailored twiggy, my Bowie as Ziggy
Do you know who you are, Mr Jones?
My narrow man
My narrow man
