marco polo lyrics – jane siberry

how did i ever get into this mess
i fell in the river and i wrecked my dress
i wanted to look good because he’s coming tonight
and he’s bringing me things that i like

oh marco–i’m shallow
but i don’t want you to think
that you’re buying my love
with these things

the last place you wrote from was constantinople
i am not impressed marco–i’ve been around
well, anyways–i told our friends
and we’ll meet you at the warehouse
down by the docks tonight

oh marco–i’m shallow
but i don’t want you to think
that you’re buying my love
with these frivolous things

but i’m dying for dresses
and i’ve run out of perfume
and i’m pining for a wine

that is halfway decent

please don’t think i’m forward but i made a reservation
at our favorite restaurant tonight for two
and if you need a place to stay
i mean if all the hotels are full
well, my room-mate is gone for the weekend

oh marco–i’m shallow
but i don’t want you to think
that you’re buying my love
with these frivolous things

but i’m dying for dresses
and i’ve run out of perfume
and i’m pining for a wine
that is halfway decent

marco polo is coming tonight
and he’s bringing me things that i like
things that i like
things that i really, really like
