Billy Joel: Come out Virginia, don’t let me wait, you Catholic girls start much too late
Virginia: Do I know you?
Billy Joel: Sooner or later it comes down to fate
I might as well be the one
Virginia: Or…you might as well not! Amor fati cuts both ways, you know!
Speaking of which, do I know you?
Billy Joel: They showed you a statue and locked you away
they built you a temple and told you to pray
ah but they never told you the price that you pay
Virginia: They didn’t, but I’m sure you’ll enlighten me.
Billy Joel: the things that you might have done.
*Break while Virgina tries to enjoy her beer. Billy Joel repeatedly shouts “Only the good die young, you know?” flecking her ear with spittle each time.*
Billy Joel: You might have heard I run with a dangerous crowd
Virginia: Actually I haven’t heard anything about you at all
Billy Joel: We ain’t too pretty
we ain’t too proud
Virginia: Yeah no, I can see that
Billy Joel: We might be laughing a bit too loud
Billy Joel: But that never hurt no one
*Virginia lets this stand, continues trying to enjoy her beer.*
Billy Joel: So come on Virginia, show me a sign
Send me a signal I’ll throw you a line
Virginia: Sorry, what are you talking about now?
Billy Joel: That stained glass curtain you’re hiding behind
it never lets in the sun
Virginia: It’s nighttime
Billy Joel: You got a nice white dress and a party on your confirmation
Virginia: Are you thinking of first communion maybe?
Billy Joel: You got a brand new soul
Virginia: Nope, baptism
Billy Joel: And a cross of gold
Virginia: Oh actually I got my grandmother’s mother of pearl Miraculous Medal. She said it saved her life in World War–
Billy Joel: BUT VIRGINIA THEY DIDN’T GIVE YOU QUITE ENOUGH INFORMATION
you didn’t count on me
when you were counting on your rosary
Virginia: No, because….why the fuck would I ever do that, again?
Do you understand how rosaries work? Are you just saying words without bothering trying to string some meaning together?
*Billy Joel is not listening, proceeds*
Some say there’s a heaven for those who will wait
some say it’s better but I say it ain’t
Virginia: Oh, well, if you say so
Billy Joel: I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints
the sinners are much more fun
