lazy lightning

So exciting,
When I hear your velvet thunder
Seems so near I start to wonder,
Would you come closer if I–
I asked you to?

The First Hypertext Edition of
The Dictionary of Phrase and Fable

You’re a loop of lazy lightning,
Liquid loop of lazy lightning,
Must admit you’re kinda fright’ning,
Liquid loop of lazy lightning

Lazy lightning
Sleepy fire in your eyes
Is it desire in disguise?
I keep on tryin’ but I–
I can’t get through

Lazy lightning
The way you always ‘lectrify me
Someday I know you’ll satisfy me
And all that lightning will be my lightning too
My lightning too

THE DICTIONARY OF PHRASE AND FABLE BY E. COBHAM BREWER
FROM THE NEW AND ENLARGED EDITION OF 1894
So inviting,
The way you’re messin’ with my reason
It’s an obsession but it’s pleasin’
Tell me a lie and I will swear
I’ll swear it’s true
