Lyric of the day from the Gigliotti vinyl collection

Americans dream of gypsies, I have found
gypsy hearts and gypsy thighs
that pound and pound and pound and pound and pound
African appendages that almost reach the ground
little boys playing baseball in the rain

America, America

step out into the light
you're the best dream that man has ever dreamed
and may all your Christmases be white

"Sigmund Freud's Impersonation of Albert Einstein in America"
Randy Newman, Little Criminals (1977)
