Words to Joe Ceravolo

I think tonight I am beginning to understand some impulses
That a friend of mine Joe Ceravolo seems to have been having
And which others have certainly had
Which makes no difference
But which might make him seem terribly silly for a while
And which if I’m right I’m beginning to feel myself
About now and therefore sympathize with
It’s a cheap sympathy when you have to come about it like this
But who cares

Listen, Joe Ceravolo
You’re OK
