Flag Counter MEXICAN TRASH GRRRL: Cult Boyfriend Jeffrey Lewis  The Misfits are...
  1. Cult Boyfriend

    Jeffrey Lewis 

    The Misfits are cult rock & roll 
    worshipped by a few but ignored on the whole 
    Meet the Feebles is a film cult classic 
    It’s basically unknown but some say it’s fantastic 

    Most women that I meet seem totally unphased 
    Til sometimes there somebody who seems totally amazed 
    I might not be in magazines as a heart throb face 
    But in a few devoted arcs I’ve found a strong fan base 

    I’m a cult boyfriend, not a mainstream show 
    I’m lonely or I’m worshiped by a lady in the know 
    When you’re a cult boyfriend life’s always intense 
    They love me or they hate me no one’s on the fence 

    Cerebus is cult comic book series 
    It’s got fans but it’s never found in movies or in theories 
    WFMU is a cult radio station 
    Always tuned to by a few devoted fans around the nation 

    For every time I couldn’t get a second date or even first 
    Why does one think I’m the best when all the rest think I’m the worst 
    All of those times no one at all wanted to know 
    If I’m really all that awesome wouldn’t more people think so 

    I guess Cult Boyfriend is the term for me 
    It’s always been quality over quantity 
    A cult boyfriend’s like a record in a bargain bin 
    No one knows what it’s worth ‘til a collector comes in 

    Hm, who are some cult literary figures I could honor 
    Maybe J. G. Ballard or Flannery O’Connor 
    Haagus and Fugu, that’s like food for cult eaters 
    Jim Jones, Charles Manson, Fater Yed, they’re cult leaders 

    Anyways the point being, do I have to magical? 
    Can’t we date a few months and then move on normal and casual 
    Suicidally alone and the totally smothered 
    It’s so much pressure when you go from one extreme to the other 

    I guess Cult Boyfriend is the term for me 
    It’s always been quality over quantity 
    A cult boyfriend’s like a record in a bargain bin 
    No one knows what it’s worth ‘til a collector comes in 

    I’m a cult boyfriend, not a mainstream show 
    I’m lonely or I’m worshiped by a lady in the know 
    When you’re a cult boyfriend life’s always intense 
    They love me or they hate me no one’s on the fence 

    And this son ain’t probably gonna go far past an open mic 
    I guaranteed though two or three people are really gonna like it.
