Penelope

Penelope

lyrics/music: Marilena Zackheos
performed by Wife of Bisclavret

I’ve been sewing buttons but they just won’t stay put
I washed the dishes thrice until the paint peeled off
I touched my book cover not once today
I ironed my good blouse to no more good use

I am my own housewife, I am my own housewife

Saw myself as mary in a pre-raphaelite today
Been listening to the same damn beat my head hurts
Been plucking out my eyebrows to no no no more left
Been covering my wrinkles with paste that’s overpriced

I am my own narcissist, I am my own narcissist

I am no calendar girl, I am no objective dream
I’m a thank you girl please do that once again oh won’t u please
I am no calendar girl, I am no objective dream
I’m a thank you girl please do that once again oh won’t u please

A-ha

Leave my bras in the closet
Keep my heart in my pocket
Hold my wishes in mittens
Bring myself down from believing

I am all these common things, what do u care, what do u, what do u, what do u
Don’t u ask me how I been, be my silent face silent face, silent be my silent
Make a puzzle out of me, what do u care, what do u, what do u, what do u
I am my own mystery, what do u care what do u what do
When u don’t care

I am no calendar girl, I am no objective dream
I’m a thank you girl please do that once again oh won’t u please
I am no calendar girl, I am no objective dream
I’m a thank you girl please do that once again oh won’t u please

I am no calendar girl, I am no objective dream
I’m a thank you girl please do that once again oh won’t u please
I am no calendar girl, I am no objective dream
I’m a thank you girl please do that once again oh won’t u please
A-ha

Big thank you to Marilena for permission to post her lyrics.
