Life is tough and love is rough
For the man who just can't seem to ever get enough
The days go by and the women come and go
So many that you decide to get rid of your front door

  • TONY: Your song “Little Boys” is about wanting to marry little boys… Devendra Banhart: Okay, let me explain myself. When we were recording the record, my friend said to me, “You know, man, they’re going to play this record in Starbucks.” And I said, “Well, I’m going to write a song that will guarantee that will never happen.” Then that night we watched the movie Chicken Hawk: Men Who Love Boys, about NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association. At the same time, swimming in my head was the idea of a song about a schizophrenic hermaphrodite with the male and female physical characteristics in one body, but also the male and female psychologies in one body. So the first half of the song is from the male perspective, and then it switches, and the second half is from the female perspective. TONY: Aren’t you worried about getting a reputation like Michael Jackson’s? Devendra Banhart: You mean his reputation as the King of Pop? That would be great!
  • i want to marry you little boy o.o
  • i think the "marrying" of little boys is a want to reclaim childhood innocence. and maybe the lyrics were intentional for shock value, and symbolic of how people fail to find innocence in such a statement
  • I appreciate your honesty, Devendra. [4]
  • I appreciate your honesty, Devendra. [3]
