VENUS ENVY - Gino Vannelli

Don’t want no marble statue smooth and cold as ice
Not some man-made goddess custom cut and spliced
Don’t need no great big set of charms to tempt my heart (oh no)
Prefer the feel of something real over plastic art
Well Aphrodite’s got grace but she ain’t the face I know and I love
‘Cause I got blood in these veins while she’s some spooky dame
Lost in the heavens above


Why do you wanna be Venus?
When your light shines brighter than the brightest star
Why do you wanna be anyone else other than who you are?
Why do you wanna be Venus?
When you’re so much more than she could ever be
Yeah I feel like I’m losing you

Come back to me

Don’t want no hand-made inlaid porcelain china doll (oh no)
Not some babe who comes unstitched before every mirror on the wall
Yeah DiMilo’s some piece but no thanks please
Not my cup of tea (oh no)
‘Cause I want flesh and bone and not some block of stone
Lying in bed next to me



Blame it on those dippy dreams of beauty queens
Who kowtow to the pressure
Prescribing to the point of view that bigger is better
Yeah those tattooed lips those vacuumed hips this whole insanity
Remember what you do you do for you and not for me

To all those beautiful women out there. And I mean all of you.

Gino Vannelli can always provide songs and lyrics to suit any of my mood and my “topic of the day.”

And the title cracks me up every time.

Love this guy.

My wife has to go to her hometown again and I’m listening to this on repeat. Go figure.

I’m tired. ›

I’m tired. I’m tired of getting my ass grabbed on the dance floor and being told I “should expect it, sweetheart.” I’m tired of getting my ass grabbed, doing nothing about it and feeling ashamed for not reacting. I’m tired of saying “no thank you” when a man comes up behind me to start dancing and completely ignores my answer.  I’m tired of again saying “i said no, but thanks” and still feeling their hands on me. I’m tired of having to move so they get the hint, and sometimes, even then, they don’t. I’m tired of saying “okay, sure” instead of “no thank you” just because I don’t want to deal with them refusing my answer. I’m tired because I know I’m not the only woman who deals with this culture.

Yeah, I kinda just stopped going to clubs and bars and then that ONE TIME I actually hit up a “safe” bar near Columbia University, I got my ass grabbed. What the fuck.

Absolutely disgusting. I don’t get it…I just don’t. I’m tired of this fucking culture and I’m not even a woman. Just hearing about some douche grab a girl’s ass makes me want to kick that fucker in the face.
