Numerics

This is how many cigarettes I’ve had
This is how many cigarettes I’ve had
Why do you think it makes me feel glad
by counting the number of smokes I’ve had?

This is the number of drinks I’ve drunk
This is the number of drinks I’ve drunk
Why do you continue to wallow in past
by counting the number I’ve times I’ve been drunk?

This is the number of women I’ve had
This is the number of women I’ve had
Why this bombardment of guilt that you try
as I recite the number of women I’ve laid?

And, this is the amount which I love you
This is the amount which I love you
Does it make you feel better inside
knowing how much I say that I love you?
