​Quick As Cupid

This song is by Matthew Friedberger and appears on the album Winter Women (2006).

Dear wicked husband, when you come home
You'll see ridiculous all this nonsense wasn't.
Did you have a camera in your walking stick that that said I'm wrong,
That lied about me?
Concealed in your purse
That doesn't know what?

I saw you kiss on the electrical tachyscope
I saw you kiss and quick as cupid I knew
All the patrons of the Kinetoscope Parlour have shared with me
What have you
What have you,
Have you how.

So my dear freedom I have gained,
Yet I could have happily been enchained
Through her unkindness and disgrace
As long as she my service did embrace", so they say.

I'm bewildered scarce with drink, not with drink
Alone wicked husband at the grand cafe
On the Boulevard des Capucines
Watching "The Train arrives"
"Scenes from Lyon"
"Down the Staircase"
Thinking of you.

I had a Skladanowsky65mm
Shot 6 seconds of a KOC meeting once
Sent it to Star films when they sent it back
Looked at it once and quick as cupid
And quick as cupid changed my course.

"So my dear freedom I have gained,
Yet I could have happily been enchained
Through her unkindness and disgrace
As long as she my service did embrace", so they say.
