In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing with you the song Valentine” by the fantastic Mary Prankster.

(Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a video for this song, but click on the arrow to hear it.)

If you need a little help understanding the words, here’s a lyrics crib sheet, thanks to

Don’t give a damn what it’s all about
I just wanna see how it all turns out
My mind’s skin tight, but my skin’s so loose
Everclear is apple juice, I’m swinging from a liquid noose

Get me drunk and get in line
I’m everybody’s valentine
Meet me in a few more sips
Kiss my red apocalips

I will never be ignored
I may be a slut, but I’m never bored
I’ll go down on anything
Cage that bird and watch her sing

High on life, but it’s not mine
Everybody’s valentine
Damaged goods all bought and sold
Cunt’s cast iron, but my heart’s pure gold

Drunk is: opening a wound half-healed
Drunk is: every little fantasy revealed
Drunk is: babble on ’til everybody thinks they see your soul
Drunk is: going from control freak to a freak with no control

Fill my hole with cum and wine
I’m everybody’s valentine
This bitter little mouth is my only claim to fame
’Cause once you’ve given head, nothing ever tastes the same

Drunk is: opening a wound half-healed
Drunk is: every bit of cruelty revealed
Drunk is: turning my shame into my pride
Drunk is: always a bridesmaid, never a bride

Bitter enough for you?

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I’ve never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again.

I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist.

Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it.

I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk.

This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
