Billions of Beautiful Boys – Music by Joseph Thalken Lyrics by Marshall Barer


Music by Joseph Thalken
Lyrics by Marshall Barer

Lyrics

There are billions of beautiful boys in the world,
But all I want is…two.

I could float through the air with the greatest of ease
With just one perfect partner on each of my knees.
Picture you and you upon a knee apiece,
Enjoying tea for three,
And three on the aisle,
And three cigarettes in the dark.

In our elegant triplex on Third Avenue,
Floating high above Trinity Park, we’ve a view
Of the Triborough Bridge,
Triple sec in the fridge,
And a loo that is truly divine.
For it’s rub-a-dub-dub
I in a three-corner tub
With the towels marked “his,” “his” and “mine.”

I’d adore to go soaring too high in the sky
In a tri-motor plane with a guy and a guy.
But I ask for no more
Than to gaze into four eyes of blue
In a cottage for three.
Only four eyes of blue
In a one-bedroom cottage for three with you two.
That’s for me!

Notes
A funny song about a “ménage à trois“. Since the singer can be either a boy or a girl it might be considered a “gay song” too (after all the towels are marked “his” “his” and “mine”). “Third Avenue” and Triborough Bridge are in NYC but there is no Trinity Park near “Thrd avenue”

  1. You could try looking in those jazz standards songbooks, sometimes called american popular songs. I’m looking for it too…. If I find it I’ll let you know 🙂 I love this song it’s so catchy and hilarious.
