I listen

And the music goes 'round my head

Wound up remembering this:

Trouble is -- can't say what I feel
Everything becomes a joke
Know how much I love you?

[a pause -- surprisingly long for a 1:52 song]

First man says to the second man
'What's that lump in your sock?'
Second man says to the first man
'That ain't no lump.'
Sorry -- Honey, I'm sorry --

-- Randy Newman, being Randy Newman. (The song, "Interiors," is included in demo form on his box set Guilty: Thirty Years of Randy Newman, and he said one thing about the song: "I thought Woody Allen's Interiors was his funniest picture.")
