lyrics

lyrics adapted/cribbed from "dance russe" by william carlos williams c. 1917

I am lonely, lonely.
I was born to be lonely,
I am best so!

If I when my wife is sleeping...
and the sun is a flame-white disc
in silken mists
above shining trees,--
if I in my north room
dance naked, grotesquely
before my mirror
waving my shirt round my head
and singing softly...
"I am lonely, lonely.
I was born to be lonely,
I am best so!"
