My Legendary Girlfriend Lyrics

by Pulp

You know sometimes ... when we're lying together ...
and I know you're asleep ...
I can hear the soft sound of your breathing ... so I get up ...
and I go to the window ...
Outside ... I can see all the houses ...
Curtains shut tight against the night ... asleep beneath the roof-tiles ...
And as I stand here ... I wonder ... I wonder how many more times ...
I'm gonna come here ...
I wonder how many more times ... I'm gonna lie here ...
And most of all ... most of all I wonder ...
I wonder what it means ... I just wanna know what it means ...
So I woke her ... and we went walking through the sleeping town ...
down deserted streets ...
Frozen gardens grey in the moonlight ... fences ... down to the canal ...
Creeping slowly past the cooling towers ...
Deserted factories ... looking for an adventure ...
I wandered the streets calling your name ...
Jumping walls ... hoping to see a light in the window ...
Let me in ... let me come in ... let me in tonight ...
Oh I see you shivering in the garden ... silver goose-flesh in the moonlight ...
She's balancing ... there are so many others ... with unbroken eyes ...
No cellulite afternoons ...
And she is balancing ... balancing on the edge of ugliness tonight ...
She is balancing ... good God!
My legendary girlfriend, she is crying tonight
Oh no she doesn't feel right
She's got no-one to hold
Her love is a sham
He is dancing somewhere
Oh no he doen't care oh well, he'll never know
Jump ... touch my hair ...
I wanna ... I don't care ... 'cos tonight ...
We could, maybe we ... maybe we can touch the sky ...
Do you think that we can ...
Do you think that we can ... touch the sky ... please ...
I know ... I know it's not forever ... but tonight I don't care ...
Your skin so pale in the moonlight ...
and the way your lips swell up when you're asleep ...
Nothing else matters ... do you know how much I want you? ...
Can you feel how much I want you? ... Oh
Pitsmoor Woman
Oh let oh let me in tonight
My legendary girlfriend, she is crying tonight
Oh no she doesn't feel right
She's got no-one to hold
Her love is a sham
He is dancing somewhere
Oh no he doen't care oh well, he'll never know
And all the stars came out tonight and the moon came on it's face
It shone right though the clothes she wore
It shone right through the dress she wore
Good God ... Oh, y'know ... listen ... listen ... please ... oh ...
I just wanna ... I just wanna... ...
He falls to sleep again ... no cheese tonight ... she knows
My legendary girlfriend, she is crying tonight
Oh no she doesn't feel right
She's got no-one to hold
Her love is a sham
He is dancing somewhere
Oh no he doen't care oh well, he'll never know
And all the stars came out tonight and the moon came on it's face
It shone right through the dress she wore
It shone right through the clothes she wore
And the stars and the moon
And the stars all came down today
Oh please love me tonight
Good God now!

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
