Music and lyrics by John Demoulpied. Produced by Steve Zimmers and Rick Karr for Box Set Authentic. Basic tracks engineered by Jeff Boyd.


Marilyn, Queen of the DMV, reserves the vanity plates for all the high society but she doesn’t do it for free. Marilyn, I don’t mind. I’ll take my place in line behind you. Now I may be stupid but I’m not dumb. I may go through epicycles to orbit ‘round your sun, but I’m not the only one. So you never need to worry; I’ll be home in a hurry for you. She’s really the most, my jam and toast, the smartest cookie in the jar. Bridge, chorus, and verse, she’s my universe, but she let me buy this lead guitar. I got it at Weast. I play it, at least. Some notes aren’t in tune, but most are. You better let me ‘cause I know how. I know you got a husband, but tell me: Where is he right now with his sneering middlebrow? He was still circling, too. She’s really the most (etc.) (‘Cause she’s the Queen of the DMV...)
