Tongue-Tied Revisited

Here’s a good song about last week’s Idiom of the Week. Listen to it and read the lyrics below:

“I’m Tongue-Tied”

by The Magnetic Fields

I’m tongue-tied and useless
I’m weak-kneed and brainless and then
I mumble some jumble
You kiss me, I’m history
I’m tongue-tied and useless again

My heart pounds
I make sounds
My ears hum
My head pops
The shoe drops
I’m struck dumb

I’m tongue-tied and useless
I’m weak-kneed and brainless and then
I mumble some jumble
You kiss me, I’m history
I’m tongue-tied and useless again

You say things
The room swings
I feel things
I’ve no doubt
I’ll black out
Grand, love ain’t

I don’t die
I say “hi”
How clever
I turn blue
I love you
Forever

I’m tongue-tied and useless
I’m weak-kneed and brainless and then
I mumble some jumble
You kiss me, I’m history
I’m tongue-tied and useless again
I’m tongue-tied and useless again
