Based on a True Story
There is a young woman who lives in Cochrane, WI
In a little house on the Mississippi River
Me and my brother stopped in front of it last summer
We were taking a break from pedaling and she was taking a break from not smoking.
So we talked for a minute
She had long brown hair
She said she hadn’t been living there long
She invited us in.
My brother said no
I was kicking myself for not saying yes
It would have been a good place to sleep
And a good place to find some late-night lovin’.
Oh well, we stretched our legs, she stretched her lungs
Lighten up, it’s only life on earth
There will be plenty of chances for nicotine buzzes and romantic encounters
Maybe I’ll go back there someday and fall in love with her.
No, that’s not what I want
I want a simple, beautiful, erotic, heartbreaking one-night stand
And then to move on to the next town
For another one just like it.
