  • She's a little bit me
    with a liberal dash of you
    He's a whole lot of them
    and a dollop of make believe

    He's WC Fields
    and Superman
    and Ginsburg when the moon is full

    She's Marilyn Monroe
    and Moms Mabley
    and Lauren Bacall
    if you whistle

    They are every boy
    you ever kissed
    juxtaposed together

    They are every girl
    you touched
    under the sweater
    rolled into one

    They live in a town
    that's a bit here
    and a bit there
    They live in the country
    and the city too

    They are spies
    They are ministers
    They are bank robbers
    They are supermarket
    checkout girls

    You made them
    you created them
    using your memory
    and imagination
