My love is getting in the way.

My love is getting in the way

It makes my reason


And happy theoretically

Oh how it thrills to long

But my love, she needs a home

And a rack to hang her hat on

And a fire just to look at

'Cause my love's already warm

My love is getting in the way

Of all the work I need to do

That poor critic in my head

Went off somewhere and fell in love

–And died

Smothered slack by tempting sweetness

Can you blame him?

My love is getting fat

From all the self soothing and grooming

She is beautiful and round

With oh such tender much to give

How could I do a thing

With a love like her at rest?

She calls all my attention

And laughs at all my lists

Deadlines are looming in the clouds

But my love, she loves the rain

And all my sense of time

Sits in boxes on the floor

With all my obligations–

They can wait another day

Let them pile and compound

My love is getting in the way
