The Lyrics

Some of you will recognize this as the next step in a running gag.
Some say love, it is a river
she drowns my face inside.
Some say love, it is a razor
whose slice, from which I cried.
Some say love, it is so peaceful
but I tell them they've lied.
I say love, it is a handbag
my girl has alibied.

It's the pain afraid of taking
that comes in from her purse.
It's the words, I know you're faking
when you say, "Man, it could be worse."
It's the pounds, 'round forty-seven
inside her bag of hand.
And it's the call come down from heaven
from when my hide she's tanned.

When the night has been too painful
and her anger's been too long
and you think that she's disdainful
you're unlucky, she's so strong
just remember that when you splinter
and you think that's how it goes
there's a doc of rhinoplasty
who will fix your broken nose.

Is this a 'tag, you're it' kind of a thing, Mister? I don't know if I can keep up...=)

EXCELLENT, darling...I especially appreciate being called 'so strong,' which comes from lugging my 47 pound purse around...; )

the power of the almighty handbag....my ex wife used to work in downtown LA...a guy tried to nab her purse, once....and she literally broke his nose with it
