For We Are the King of the Boudoir
The Magnetic Fields Lyrics


Should time allow us to describe our prowess
It would be quite hard to overrate
For we are the king of the boudoir old thing and the king doesn't like to wait.
One tryst with me and you'll be spinning like a gyroscope
One tryst with me and you'll be Pope

Should modesty allow us to describe our prowess less-ness-less-ness
'Twould be hard to overstate,
For we are the king of the boudoir it's true and the king doesn't like to wait.
One kiss from me and you'll be overjoyed and overawed.
One kiss from me and you'll see God.
For we are the king of the boudoir we are and the king doesn't like to wait.

The Magnetic Fields - For We Are The King of The Bodoir (Day 66)

From contributor on genius app:
"On 69 Love Songs, Merritt worked in a remarkable breadth of musical styles; this track is a harpsichord-driven post-Baroque art song, of the sort that might have been composed by Haydn or Mozart in an afternoon (complete with poop jokes in Mozart’s case)."

Would gays welcome this song as their gay love anthem? Or maybe I feel we should all take this song as love anthem? I'm straight except for jules casablancas and david sylvian but this makes me feel really really gay!


"One tryst with me and you'll be spinning like a gyroscope


One tryst with me and you'll be pope

Should modesty allow us to describe our prowesslessnesslessness
'Twould be hard to overstate
For we are the king of the boudoir it's true
And the king doesn't like to wait"
