This was written on a napkin in a Denny's in the summer of '93 to impress a girl, with the intention that she sing it. She did not.


I was hungry, so I bought some fries.
I done ingest them progressively by size
As I chew them slowly I watch your eyes
As they bug out to the size of love

The size of love is about yea big
Smaller than a forest, bigger than a twig
Yes, I know that you dig me; I’m what you’re thinkin’ of
‘Cause I see you swellin’ to the size of love

I was thirsty, so I bought a coke
When you said “add salt,” I thought it was a joke
But that occasion haunts me; I missed that poke
A taste sensation growing to the size of love

As we left that Denny’s
Paid the check and skipped to the airlock
Next to the cigarette machine
I’ve never seen that many nervous ticks in a macho man
Your breath so big, and your love so mean

I know that you dig me But I’m givin’ you the shove
Cause it’s underwhelming, the size
It’s less than hefty the size
It’s so damn tiny, the size of your love
