Restless Eyes

Under The Covers

Janis Ian

Spanish boys'll greet you
with that old obscene refrain
The sadness of a thousand
waiting window panes
Gypsy boys'll beat you
at your own familiar game.
while the whore on the corner
drags that same old ball and chain

They make better lovers
So I've been told
Under the covers
That's where you discover if your man is whole
They don't come easy, but they're worth the time
And if you please me, maybe I'll let you be mine

Latin boys are easy
They'll touch you with their eyes
Handle you the way they need
without disguise
Gypsy boys'll fool you
into global compromise
while occasional candy
keeps your belly satisfied

They make better lovers
So I've been told
Under the covers
That's where you discover if your man is whole
They don't come easy, but they're worth the time
And if you please me, maybe I'll let you be mine

They say they only hurt you
because they're hurting themselves
And they don't mean to dry up
all your wishing wells
They say you should be truthful
but you know sometimes they lie
And though it isn't meant to,
it still tears me up inside

They make better lovers
So I've been told
Under the covers
That's where you discover if your man is whole
They don't come easy, but they're worth the time
And if you please me, maybe I'll let you be mine
