lyrics

Fuck the New Yorker and Sasha Frere-Jones.
I dug up a few of Austin Osman Spare's bones,
made some incantations,
now I'm walking with a ghost.
You'd think this was the end of days
but we're not even close. So baby,

fuck the New Yorker; what do they know?
They haven't seen your grimoire
or your Broadway show.
They just sit in 4 Times Square, smoking weed and making jokes.
Meanwhile, you're resigned to writing rhymes for Wizards of the Coast…

So if you don't give 'em any credence, I won't.
Some may think that they're elitist; I don't.
It's just like Jeez,
this happens every fucking week –
I can't count the hours I've lost to
Alex Ross instead of sleep. So

Fuck James Thurber & Donald Barthelme.
The dadgum bygone past is just that:
so far away.
Now it's all about the art collection of
Anfernee Hardaway.
Jazz and Standards, Shouts and Murmurs,
nothing left to say.

Yeah,
Fuck the New Yorker!
I'd rather watch TV.
Pay a few cents to breeze through adverts
targeted at me.
Cor, those Shell and Ghurka placements must cost several tens of g's!
Never mind the kind of scratch you need to pay John Ashbery's V.O. fee…

Things have changed;
we're through the looking glass.
I'm late for my brain-cleansing and cooking class.
Plus that piece on Bahrain, it really whooped my ass.
I haven't even touched the Sunday Times;
I need something good and fast, so

Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
That's how it goes.

Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
Fuck the New Yorker
and Sasha Frere-Jones.
