Venus Envy Lyrics

Venus Envy - Gino Vannelli

Composer:Gino Vannelli/Brian Hamilton

Don't want no marble statue smooth

And cold as ice

 

Not some man made goddess

 

Custom cut and spliced

 

Don't need no great big set of charms

To tempt my heart

 

Oh no

 

Prefer the feel of something real

 

Over plastic art

 

Well Aphrodite's got grace

But she ain't the face I know and I love

 

'Cause I got blood in these veins

While she's some spooky dame

Lost in the heavens above

 

Why do you wanna be Venus

 

When your light shines brighter

Than the brightest star

Why do you wanna be anyone else

 

Other than who you are

Why do you wanna be Venus

 

When you're so much more

Than she could ever be

 

Yeah I feel like I'm losing you

 

Come back to me

 

Don't want no hand made inlaid

 

Porcelain china doll

 

Oh no

 

Not some babe who comes unstitched

Before every mirror on the wall

 

Yeah DiMilo's some piece

No thanks please

Not my cup of tea

Oh no

'Cause I want flesh and bone

And not some block of stone

Lying in bed next to me

 

Why do you wanna be Venus

 

When your light shines brighter

Than the brightest star

Why do you wanna be anyone else

 

Other than who you are

Why do you wanna be Venus

 

When you're so much more

Than she could ever be

 

Yeah I feel like I'm losing you

 

Blame it on those dippy dreams

Of beauty queens

Who kowtow to the pressure

Prescribing to the point of view

That bigger is better

Yeah those tattooed

Lips those vacuumed

Hips this whole insanity

Remember what you do you

Do for you and not for me

 

Oh yeah

When your light shines brighter

Than the brightest star

Why do you wanna be anyone else

 

Other than who you are

Why do you wanna be Venus

 

When you're so much more

Than she could ever be

 

Yeah I feel like I'm losing you

 

Come back to me

Come back to me

Will you please

Come back to me

 

Come back yeah

 

Don't want no marble statue smooth

And cold as ice

Please

Come back to me

Don't want no marble statue smooth

 

And cold as ice
