Story behind the song
The song started off as nothing more than a pun on a piece of paper. "Allison ponders a man named Mose." It refers to a very cool jazz singer named Mose Allison. Then the pun mutates into a bunch of Moses stuff, the burning bush up on a mountain (Mt. Sinai), "20 times two and no real lovin'" 20 times 2 is the number of years Moses led his crew wandering in the desert. He messes with someone named Yvonne (Yvonne DeCarlo played Moses' wife in 'The Ten Commandments'). An hour later this pile of wordplay and noodles turned into a serious song.
Lyrics
Allison ponders a man named Mose He's up on a mountain with his bush a-burnin' Was he sucking on Yvonne's toes? While girl sits home all toss and turnin' Cold compress and a dose of religion A yen to confess what's in her bones Shopping for shoes in lieu of livin' Then bolt the door and get on with jones Stairwell dank in the cold of summer Love is hard no love's a bummer I know CHORUS: Love is hard . . . lovelorn ....................Love is hard . . . shopworn ....................Got to slow down. Got to slow down ....................Slow down ....................To get born Moses suits up, shoots up the fast lane Swims upstream in digital pool Knocking down pussy like lines of cocaine A gut full of gimme and a mouth full of drool Sweet sixteen in the neighbor's yard Someone else's buns in the oven Mo is whackin' the doggie hard Twenty times two but no real lovin' Love is hard where the fun is easy Heart gets tired while the nose gets greasy I know CHORUS: Love is hard . . . lovelorn ....................Love is hard . . . shopworn ....................Got to slow down. Got to slow down ....................Slow down ....................To get born ©2003 polar levine--sine language music/BMI
