The BRAND NEW single from The New Town Centres


Down in the basement under night light
Making me a woman to see me right
No imperfections - pure poetry
Little bits of women - physiognomy

I like a turned-up nose - and Suki’s got one of those
I like real small feet – kick off those shoes Brigitte
I like Louisa’s hair in Alice bands
I’m putting Audra’s nails on Karen’s hands,
I’m making Frankenstein’s baby out of bits of the ladies that I love

I started this project, in September, 1970
Approached my subject, I remember, omnivorously.
I never had a girlfriend that compares to this
Forty-seven women in just one kiss

And for the nape of the neck Queen Katherine gets a check
I need a well-placed mole: flip on your front, Nicole
I’m putting Julia’s voice in Patricia’s throat
And Sophie’s poise really floats my boat
I’m making Frankenstein’s baby out of bits of the ladies that I love


I’m gonna build her a temple
I’m gonna hang her in the Louvre
There’s no wedding plans at present:
You see, my mum don’t approve
She doesn’t have a name yet or personality
She got no conscience and that suits me

Su-Ling’s got the stride – slinking side to side
You know Electra’s stare – turns me to stone down there.
I like Vashti’s lashes, Evelyn’s friends,
I like all the ways that Mercedes bends
I’m making Frankenstein’s Baby out of bits of the ladies that I love
