​Oh, Contessa!

This song is by Casiotone For The Painfully Alone and appears on the album Pocket Symphonies for Lonesome Subway Cars (2001).

The contessa deluxe
That you bought at laney swap meet for seven bucks
Sat on the passenger side the whole way down
To fullerton ca your home town

I'm writing this letter to say
That I read your last letter for the fifth time today
I've memorized the typos under x's & the o's
Punched clean through the paper

That typer you bought w/ the c button bent
So you have to use the sign for the cent
And the stamps you stick
On the envelopes you lick

Are what keep me close to you in your parents' backyard
Punching the typewriter keys too hard
