GOLDEN STATUE

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


          I.  sometimes I dream
              of galleries
              with whitewashed walls
              and black settees,
              where one might find
              a statue rare,
              a golden lady
              waiting there.
              when I'm awake
              I often see
              each day as one more
              gallery.
              I dream of statues
              made of gold.
              won't you tell me where
              such things are sold?

     CHORUS:  golden statue,
              bring your sight
              from misty dream
              to broad daylight.

         II.  bronze and stone
              are often seen
              in pretty girls
              of seventeen:
              charming and friendly
              and so easy to love
              that you forget
              what she's made of.
              but the smile she uses
              like a crutch
              lets you know she doesn't
              know too much.

              (repeat chorus)

        III.  golden figures
              often come.
              the content's there
              but the form's all wrong.
              she knows E=mc2,
              but she doesn't know
              how to care,
              as if somewhere
              a hidden scar
              says, "desire
              is just an old streetcar."

              (repeat chorus)
