Otis And Marlena (LP版) - Joni Mitchell (琼妮·米切尔)

Written by:Joni Mitchell

 

Marlena under foster grants

 

She's undercover from the dawns advance

 

That girl is travel drained

 

And the neon mercury vapor stained

 

Miami sky

 

It's red as meat

 

It's a cheap pink rose

 

Otis in the driver's seat

 

Watches the street lights fade away

 

On louvered blocks in green sea air

 

In fluorescent fossil yards

 

Slippers are shuffling into folding chairs

 

Freckled hands are shuffling cards

 

They've come for fun and sun

 

While Muslims stick up Washington

 

Otis empties out the trunk

 

On the steps of that celebrated dump

 

Sleazing by the sea

 

Bow down to her royal travesty

 

In her ballrooms heads of state

 

In her bedrooms rented girls

 

Always the grand parades of cellulite

 

Jiggling to her golden pools

 

Through flock and cupid colonnades

 

They jiggle into surgery

 

Hopefully beneath the blade

 

They dream of golden beauty

 

They've come for fun and sun

 

While Muslims stick up Washington

 

Marlene white as stretcher sheet

 

Watches it all from her 10th floor balcony

 

Like it's her opera box

 

All those Pagliacci summer frocks

 

Otis is fiddling with the TV dial

 

All he gets are cartoons and reruns

 

She taps her glass with an emery file

 

Watching three rings in the sun

 

The golden dive the farted flake

 

And sizzle in the mink oil

 

It's all a dream

She has awake

 

Checked into Miami royal

 

Where they've come for fun and sun

 

While Muslims hold up Washington
