the magnetic fields – my husband’s pied-a-terre lyrics


my husband’s pied-a-terre

i know of a groovy place
where every girl of every race,
age, and bra size, and iq
goes when she feels broke or blue

it’s a place more women stay
than the ywca
go there once, you get the key
so every girl’s been there but me

where’s a minx get minks to wear
why, my husband’s pied-ã -terre
in two drinks, you think she’ll care
that’s my husband’s pied-ã -terre

every alley cat in town
knows my husband’s flat in town

better get your derriere
to my husband’s pied-a-terre
love is in the very air
of my husband’s pied-ã -terre

i understand the latest fad
is my husband’s bachelor pad

all the cl-sses mingle there
at my husband’s pied-ã -terre
there is not one single chair
in my husband’s pied-ã -terre

when i find this loony bin
i am going to do him in
