There’s this girl (and isn’t there always?)
and i swear on my mother’s smile
that if the ancients saw her
they’d know just what to do with her
hips like Earth, hips like providence
she’s the perfect size for worship

Put her under your pillow and you’ll bear twins
make her a statue and place her in the marketplace
you’ll know good fortune like never before

She’s the kind of girl who glows,
and this must prove she’s H O L Y
her smile is better that any afterlife
