Supermodel Adriana Lima playing accordion

Not Amish


You know my day job is specialized and technical
Was out of town for training all last week
Studied software every day from eight to five
And on the final night I had a dream

I dreamed that supermodel Adriana Lima was an Amish girl
In a long blue dress buttoned tight saying ‘thou’ and ‘thee’
We’d been courting for a while hadn’t talked about my job yet
She told me if I could explain it to her she would marry me

She said, ‘How is it more than idle vanity?’
(I couldn’t answer)
‘How does it benefit society?’
(I couldn’t answer)
‘How does it keep thy soul from sin?’
I could not answer yet again

So I tried to make analogies between computers and farming
But they’re not simple they’re not humble they contribute to global warming
My day job failed the Amish test
Ah but playing the accordion is really what I like best

She said, ‘How is that more than idle vanity?’
(I couldn’t answer)
‘Is thy accordion plain or sparkly?’
(I couldn’t answer)
I’m so screwed now I’m so screwed now
She said I’d have to give it all up and learn to plough

I dreamed that supermodel Adriana Lima was an Amish girl
In a long blue dress instead of lingerie or less
I woke up thinking ‘Adriana, maybe we’re both off track
And we should head for Pennsylvania arm in arm and not look back

I dreamed that supermodel Adriana Lima was an Amish girl…
