Poems

These are the four poems we see Charlie perform in the movie. Let me know if you spot any errors, please.

Woman, woman, woman (original)

Woman...
Woe-man...
Whoooa-man!

She was a thief
You gotta believe
She stole my heart and my cat.

Betty,
Judy,
Josie and those hot Pussycats...

They make me horny,
Saturday morny...
Girls of cartoo-ins...
Won't leave me in ruins...

I want to to be Betty's Barney.

Hey Jane...
Get me off this crazy thing...

Called love.

Stevie does woman, woman, woman

O Butcher Lady (not performed but in his notebook)

O Butcher Lady
Killer of sheep
And men

Untrusting
Unknowing
Unloving

This poem sucks

Woman, woman, woman (Mrs. X version)

Woman...
Woe-man...
Whoooa-man!

We had love not just sex
Is she Mrs. X?
I had to run for my life!

(pauses)

Jane! Get me off this crazy thing
Called love

Bellicose Butcher

Harriet!
Harri-et!
Hard hearted harbinger of haggis!

Beautiful!
Bemused!
Bellicose butcher!

Untrusting!
Unknowing!
Unlove-d?

"He wants you back!" He screams into the night air
Like a fireman going to
A window that has no fire
Except the passion of his heart...

I am lonely!
It's really hard!
This poem sucks!

Harriet

Rose!
Jailbird!
Happy in her cage
No longer full of rage
She roosts

Harriet!
Sweet Harriet!
You acted cuckoo
'Cause you thought I would leave you
Sweet bird

Harriet!
Sweet Harriet!
So knowing!
So trusting!
So love-d!

Harriet!
Sweet Harriet!
