Reno Dakota
The Magnetic Fields Lyrics

Reno Dakota, there's not an iota of kindness in you
You know you enthrall me and yet you don't call me
It's making me blue, Pantone 292
Reno Dakota, I'm reaching my quota of tears for the year
Alas and alack! you just don't call me back
You have just disappeared, it makes me drink beer
I know you're a recluse
You know that's no excuse
Reno, that's just a ruse
Do not play fast and loose with my heart
Reno Dakota, I'm no Nino Rota, I don't know the score
Have I annoyed you or is there a boy who
Well, he's just a whore
I've had him before
It makes me drink more

The Magnetic Fields - Reno Dakota (Day 5)

The rhymes, the play on the words, Nino Rota popping up, "alas and alack", it's just so genius, hearing Claudia over a banjo. Short, funny and sad! I really don't know what to quote here, but let's go with this!

"Reno Dakota
I'm reaching my quota
Of tears for the year
Alas and alack
You just don't call me back"


"Reno Dakota
I'm no Nino Rota
I don't know the score"

Matt LaGoy

I have a challenge for you: listen to this only once
