about

The Supermodel Who Loved Me is a wild rock n roll bonanza from Josh McIlvain and his 16 Generals of musicians who vary from a dub producer to a free jazz drummer to a pop historian-loving bass player to a classical violinist from the Metropolitan Opera. These 17 songs exploit the many genres of American rock (& beyond) music and Americana themes with a lyrical edge grounded in storytelling, a wry sense of humor, lust, love, and flying saucers.

Track Name: The Supermodel Who Loved Me
She liked to roll around in the sand
She liked to skinny dip in the pool
She liked to pose at the foot of the bed
She was the supermodel who loved me
She liked to wash fast cars
She liked to wet herself with a garden hose
She liked to smile
She was the supermodel who loved me
I don’t know why
I didn’t think supermodels loved regular guys
But she did
And I’m sorry that I broke her heart I didn’t know
I didn’t mean to hurt her so
She wore a seashell bikini
She had twenty pillows on her bed
She liked glass tables
She was the supermodel who loved me
She took me on her sailboat
And we sailed the Mediterranean
She lay naked on the bow
Wow! She was the supermodel who loved me
I don’t know why . . .
One day I had to go
And the tears she cried sparkled
They were the most beautiful tears
They were the saddest tears
But I was out of dough
And the police were threatening to take my passport
If I didn’t take the next plane home
She wouldn’t let me go
She didn’t understand
I had to pry her hands from mine
And she dropped to the floor
And I walked away
Never to see her anymore . . .
She’d wear lingerie for outerwear
She’d have sex with me anywhere
Sometimes she’d put her hair up
She was the supermodel who loved me
Track Name: (Come Ride My) Flying Saucer
Come ride my flying saucer
Oh, li’l Miss Lotta
I’ll take you where I oughtn’a
Then drop you back at your mama’s
Mama asks, where have you been?
You tell the truth, she says you been drinking
You cry
L'il Miss Lotta no longer allowed outside
But I come flying back
And knock on your front door
Greeted by your mother
I say hey hot mama how bout a ride on my flying saucer?
Come ride my flying saucer . . .
I’ve got your mama on my saucer
And we fly fly fly
So far and so fast
Your sweet mama’s having a blast
When I bring her back to your door
You ask, oh, mama, how could you?
That was so improper
Your mama says, yes I know dear darling daughter but he's got such a big flying saucer
Big flying saucer
Oh yes I do
I got a big ol’ flying saucer
Plenty o’ saucer for you
Come ride my flying saucer
You’ll like it I promise ya
And you cannot resist
The way my saucer twists
Come ride my flying saucer, baby
And I will never let you go
Not till tomorrow
Come ride my flying saucer
Fly away with me
Come ride my flying saucer
We’ll blast off to the next galaxy!
Track Name: She Only Gets Out To Funerals
She only gets out to funerals now
Otherwise I hear she’s doing fine
She’s got a new dog and she’s named him precious
Her favorite soap opera is the young and restless
A sea of red carpets she stepped upon
How she basked in the flashing lights
Every picture they took you know she had the perfect look
Her body handled every angle
Always at the place to be
The place to be being wherever she was
Oh how the world clamored for her glamour
She only gets out to funerals now
Sophisticated without trying
Carefree but never tiring
Every move she made was oh so graceful
For every favor she was forever grateful
Her laughter was contagious she was fond of the outrageous
The parties she attended were events to be remembered
For her presence was like heaven
And she was never too strong with her opinions
With every change of clothes, she created fashions
Wherever her eyes fell, she created passions
If the world the world had a top she was forever on it
She only goes out to funerals now
Track Name: Why'd You Leave?
Why’d you leave again?
I wasn’t paying attention
As you walked
Out that door
What was the problem?
I must have forgotten
Perhaps you’ll remind me
If I see you once more
Till then I think
I’ll walk around the block
Repeatedly
When I get home
There’s no trace you ever lived here
Still I feel you missing
Is it something in the air?
Why did you leave, again?
Honey, I can’t remember
I keep asking these walls
But they've no answer
Track Name: Dreaming
She left him for the surfer
He never thought that she’d go
But she left him for the waves
That hit the beaches of Puerto Rico
She sits out in the sun
She’s got her favorite sunglasses on
She slips her feet under the sand
The past seems so far gone
And he’s still dreaming
In his apartment in the sky
Sips his coffee at the kitchen table
He bought the place because she liked the light
He’s still dreaming
That she’ll walk through the door
She’s no longer twenty-three
But she still looks hot in her bikini
And now she’s the older one
The surfer boy’s just turned twenty-one
Last night they had sex on a table
And then they did it on the stairs
Then later outside on the front porch
How she likes the way he pulls her hair
And he’s still dreaming
How her smile warmed his heart
Sunday mornings he brought her coffees and croissants
And they read The New York Times in bed
He’s still dreaming
That she’ll walk through the door
He helped her settle down
He gave her comfort that she’d never had
She was his inspiration
She was his second chance
This fall he’ll call her
Every time a hurricane
Five hundred miles near her
Just calling to make sure she’s safe
She’s got the waves, she’s got the sunshine
She’s got the sand beneath her feet
She’s got her younger man
And the house on the beach
And he’s still dreaming
But she’s no longer thinking of him . . .
Track Name: The Jesus Song
My baby used to call me
Honey-pie, the apple of her eye
But all her love went out the window
When in stepped Jesus Christ
I should have caught on early
With all the hymnals she started humming
But I never connected that
To the Second Coming
I lost my girl
I lost her to Jesus
I lost my girl to Mr. Jesus Christ
I don’t know why Jesus
Would steal my girl away
I’m not an expert on the bible
But I didn’t think Jesus loved girls in a biblical way
He will impress your lady
With all his lordly talk
He might even walk across water
If he really wants to get her hot
I lost my girl . . .
I lost my girl to Jesus
She came home one day said Josh we’re through
She said hallelujah my heart only belongs to Jesus
Brother, beware, this could happen to you
Feeds her fish for dinner
And over wine she gets devout
And for dessert you know what he gives her?
A big old sermon on the mount!
Maybe if I get this religion
My baby will come back to me
But then I’d have to get down on my knees
To the one who cuckolded me
Track Name: She Married Dumb
She married dumb
Dumb and good looking
She married dumb
Not smart and back-hooking
He’ll never question
Wherever she wants to go
And where she leads
He will faithfully follow
She married dumb
Because she’s sick of complicated
She married dumb
She doesn’t need creative
So he’s not great at geography
And he’s can’t any planets
Still he can move furniture
And he never takes her for granted
She married dumb
And she’s happy as a clam
She married dumb
Because that’s what she likes best in a man
Yes, he defers all things
To her wisdom
Because he’s so impressed
How she just knows things
She married dumb
Now she has a puppy for life
She married dumb
Because she’s a smart wife
Now don’t you feel stupid
For look what you’ve done
You were so clever
That she married dumb
Track Name: Video Poker (The Hook-Up Song)
Do you really like video poker?
Well, come on over and let me buy you a beer
And we can drink together
And enjoy each other’s company
Because tonight I could use a girl like you
Tonight I could do better than watch a game
Tonight, I could spend getting to know you
And in the morning I could look upon your face
Let’s hook-up tonight
And put some life into this place
Let’s get drunk—hey!—and make it happen
Let’s hook up tonight
Let’s talk about people who drive us crazy
Let’s talk about sex and how it feels
Let’s talk about traveling to places
Far away from here
And if our legs start touching
That’s something that we won’t stop
And when our hands come together
Let’s order one more shot
Let’s hook-up tonight . . .
Let’s drink to you and me
Or at least to the night
Then let’s laugh our way to your apartment
In the early morning light
Track Name: New Gorillas
New Gorillas at the zoo
I heard about it on the news
They're bringing them in today
New Gorillas I can't wait
To watch them sit around bored
Looking round looking morbid
And maybe they will through their shit
At those of us who visit
They are free to roam around
On their little spot of ground
Watch one lumber a whole four feet
Before it takes another seat
New Gorillas at the zoo
I heard about it on the news
They're bringing them in today
New Gorillas I can't wait
Gorillas aren't like the cats
Who clearly want to eat the little brats
Gorillas are content to eat
Green bananas with their feet
New Gorillas from far away
Now they get to visit the United States
What an opportunity this must be
Most gorillas never travel overseas
So you go, you go, you go gorilla . . .
New Gorillas at the zoo
Wild animals for me and you
New Gorillas I can't wait
New Gorillas I think it's great
Track Name: Porn Hot
Oh, she’s hot, like a porn star’s hot
And she’s got, moves like a porn star’s got
And she talks, like a porn star talks
And she’s my baby!
She is hot like a porn star’s hot
And she rocks just like a porn star rocks
And when she pops, she pops loud like a porn star pops
And she’s my baby!
Some guys like the girl next door
My baby can play that she can play so much more
She can be a school girl she can be a nurse
An Egyptian high priestess in a mini skirt
Ou, she bends, just like a porn star bends
And she mends just like a porn star mends
Because she descends when you need a friend
And that’s my baby
I’m caught in the power she’s got
Because she’s hot just like a porn star’s hot
She likes to say daddy-o please don’t stop
She’s my baby.
Some guys like the girl next door . . .
She says babe you turn me on so
You be the pool boy, I’ll be the rich ho
And there’s a happy ending to this I know
Because she’s my baby
Track Name: Gone
Where did our love go?
Forever more
Now that we smashed it
On your kitchen floor
Was it swept up
Put in the trash
Twisty tied
Taken out back
Put out on Friday
To be picked up
Delivered with the other trash
To the dump
And have the seagulls
Come to make of it a meal
Flown away and shit it
On some windshield
It’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone away
It’s gone it’s gone a castaway
Did the rain then
Come storming down
To wash our love
Upon the ground
Off the slopes
Of a highway unseen
From our love
Have there grown some weeds
And so our love
Continues to grow
But where that is
I don’t exactly know
It’s gone . . .
Where did our love go?
Forever more
Now that we smashed it
On your kitchen floor
Track Name: 10 Days
Oh, she’s hot, like a porn star’s hot
And she’s got, moves like a porn star’s got
And she talks, like a porn star talks
And she’s my baby!
She is hot like a porn star’s hot
And she rocks just like a porn star rocks
And when she pops, she pops loud like a porn star pops
And she’s my baby!
Yeah, I spent 10 days with you and now I’m leaving
It was only 10 days but it felt like 10 years
Every minute with you felt like and hour
And every second, well, felt like an hour, too
They say a cigarette takes 10 minutes off your life
I think I’d live long if I spent those 10 days smoking
What a time we thought we’d have how we were mistaken
After only one hour I knew it’d be 10 days of faking
10 days
10 whole days
I’d rather have spent 10 days stuck on a train
Or in the waiting room of the doctor’s office
Reading the same magazine over and over again
10 days that made 11 my lucky number
10 days that felt like 10 years
10 days
10 whole days
10 days
10 days with you
How ever did I
Make it through
Those 10 days
Those 10 days . . .
10 days with you and now I’m leaving
Was it only 10 days? It felt like 10 years
10 days is 864,000 seconds
I know because I counted every single one
Track Name: Sweet Spring
Sweet spring I love you
You make everything okay
Sweet spring I love you
With your sunny ways
Your beauty conquers death
Sends it away
And my blood warms up
In your embrace
You bring hope to my heart
Because you’re the season of dreams
Sweet spring I love you
I wish you’d never leave
Your sweet flowers
Fill me with desire
I want to be with you
All of the time
Sweet spring I love you
And you always love me back
Sweet spring I love you
Won’t you take me back
Track Name: Manfish
I like to stay underwater
Because I’ve got gills
Yes, I’ve got gills
They help improve my swimming skills
Everyone teases me
Because I’ve got fins
Yes, I’ve got fins
They say my parents were kin
Yes I am a man—Manfish
My appearance is a bit—outlandish
Yes I am a man
Manfish
When I speak it’s with a gurgle
Once I loved a girl
Her name was Myrtle
Kids called her Myrtle the turtle
But old Myrtle was no turtle
Which is really kind of too bad
For if Myrtle had been part turtle
You know we really could have gone places
Yes I am a man . . .
Manfish life is hard
Stand out on the boulevard
Part man, part fish
Once a cook tried to serve me as a dish
The fate I’ve been given
Displaced from the living
The kind of distress
A mule feels I guess
Track Name: Dirty On My Mind
I’ve got dirty on my mind
Facing you or your behind
Words are not what I had in mind
I’ve got dirty on my mind
There are times for hello
A nice day, don’t you think so?
A compliment on your hair
Or maybe 'bout something that you’re wearing
But I’m not feeling like small talk
That’s not the feeling that I’ve got
Other days that’d be fine
Today I’ve got dirty on my mind . . .
That’s real nice that it’s sunny
Don’t you know I’m dirty for you honey
Tornado could be right outside
I’d still have dirty on my mind
I don’t care how you make a living
I don’t care where we’d spend thanksgiving
Only one thing’s sure to satisfy
When I’ve got dirty on my mind
We might last a night or longer
Our hearts grow cold or become fonder
Sharing thoughts may come in time
I’ve got dirty on my mind . . .
I don’t care where you come from
I just need to know if you’re a fun one
Were your clothes made for me to take the off
Were your girlfriends made for coming to join us?
I’ve got dirty on my mind
If you do too then you’re my kind
Dinner and a movie mmm some other time
I’ve got dirty on my mind. . . .
Track Name: H.D.M.B.
I want a hot dirty mean bitch
To ruin my life
I want a hot dirty mean bitch
To ruin my life and make me like it
I want a cruel vicious woman
So I can feel low
A cruel vicious woman
Ice cold
That’s what I like . . .
I want a manipulative vixen
Morally impure
Who’ll take all my money
And leave me begging to give her more
Cause if I wanted a nice girl
Honey, I’d go to church
But she could never love me
Like the girl who likes to hurt
I want a hot dirty mean bitch
To ruin my life
I want a hot dirty mean bitch
To ruin my life and make me like it
I want an evil little whore
To throw my heart down on the floor
Pierce it with her high heel shoe
And kick it out the door.
That’s what I like . . .
Track Name: REAL ESTATE
When people say they’re in real estate
I tend to think here’s someone I already hate
And when they drone on about how it’s so great
I bite my cheek just to stay awake
But when you said you were in real estate
I thought instead that was first rate
And not just because I liked you personal real estate
Suddenly I realized it was a subject I really could appreciate
You never know
What’s oh so fascinating
Until you fall in love
When people say they’re into computer programming
I tend to want to hit my head with a hammer
But when you said computer programming is what you do
I thought, finally, here’s someone I can talk to
When someone says they work in insurance
The conversation regularly becomes a test of the old endurance
But when you said you filed insurance claims
I had never realized that insurance was so fucking great
You never know . . .
When people say they’re in human resources
I tend to want to shit down their throats
But when you said you were in human resources
I thought how cool you have “human” in your job title
When people say they work in a clothing store
I have to fight to keep my eyes from glazing over
But when you said you worked in a clothing store
I just wanted you to tell me more, more, more!
