about

Once upon a long time ago, my wife, who was but a mere slip of a thing at 17, had a mad crush on Joey Ramone, and had written him copious amounts of poetry which, via a mutual friend, she was able to get to him. And then, one night, at a club on Long Island, Joey summoned her backstage and told her how much he dug her poems, and he posed for a picture with her, never knowing that while his back had been turned she'd swiped the pit of the peach that he had just eaten. And, yes, she still has it.

lyrics

Hanging around St. Mark's Place
Sucking on a peach pit keepsake
Fresh enough to taste his bubblegum

The poetry that's in her hand
Writ for that fragile punk rock man
Oh, to hear her words upon his tongue

And she loves the way that his long hair falls
And she keeps him pinned to her bedroom wall

Oh she's Joey's girl (I'm in love, I'm in love)
How she's rocked my world (I'm in love, I'm in love)
I will be her knight (I will shine, I will shine)
'Til the day that Joey comes back

Dancing at My Father's Place
Staring up at Dee Dee's face
Wondering if the time would ever come

Oh how her young heart did stir
The night that Joey asked for her
Oh to hear her name upon his tongue

And he washed his hair, and put on fresh clothes
Wrapped his around 'round her, and he held her close

Yeah she's Joey's girl (I'm in love, I'm in love)
How she's rocked my world (I'm in love, I'm in love)
I will be her knight (I will shine, I will shine)
'Til the day that Joey comes back

'Til the day that Joey comes back
'Til the day that Joey comes back
