​Round A Pole

This song is by Ani DiFranco and appears on the album Red Letter Year (2008).

I could sing you round a pole
I could talk you up a tree
But when it comes to what really matters
You are way more clever than me

I knew I wanted to be challenged
But I was unclear about how
So I'll be the guy with the toolbox
And you be the fun lovin' gal

And I'll learn to fix stuff
If you will teach me love
And god will radiate out from within us
Instead of this bullshit from above
And we can dance round like monkeys
After the paparazzi have gone home
Having let go forever
The fallacy of ever being alone

I could sing you round a pole
Like a ball at the end of a rope
Have you duckin and sluggin
Protecting your head
But I decided just to love you back instead

'Cause I have studied my own pain
Like an ambitious scientist
And I've discovered it's all the same
And has nothing to do with this

So I'll learn to fix stuff
If you will teach me love
And god will radiate out from within us
Instead of this bullshit from above
And we can dance around like monkeys
After the paparazzi have gone home
Having let go forever
The fallacy of ever being alone
