A musical love letter to Isabella Rossellini and her "Green Porno" videos, a series of brilliant short films about the sex lives of animals. Watch them here: www.sundancechannel.com/series/greenporno


Isabella Rosselini shot me in the heart
With her cupid’s bow and arrow like a froggy poison dart
And her teachers of seduction were the creatures of the sea
Yeah I was no match for nature when she cast her spell on me

And she wrapped ten arms around me in a passionate embrace
And she kissed me with that lipstick and a smile upon her face
Is she gonna be my lover is she gonna be my friend
Will she stay with me forever what I want to know is

When will you love me
Isabella Rosselini
When will you love me
Isabella Rosselini

Catch me with a net
Catch me with a hook
Catch me in the kitchen with your dirty little book
Put me in a dish
Fry me in a pan
Eat me if you’re hungry yeah but tell me honey

When will you love me
Isabella Rosselini
When will you love me
Isabella Rosselini

Isabella Rossellini set my heart astir
With her beautiful complexion and her luminescent lure
Like a limpet or a shrimp I’d change from boy into a girl
I’d slip out of all my armor for a minute more with her

Like a starfish gone to pieces I’m beside myself with joy
At the thought of Isabella she could treat me like her toy
I would climb up any barnacle and climb back down again
I would do her every bidding what I want to know is

When will you love me
Isabella Rossellini
When will you love me
Isabella Rossellini

Love me in the morning
Love me in the night
Love me when you’re ugly underwater with a light
Love me in the deep
Love me when it’s bright
Love me till you start to lose your appetite

When will you love me
Isabella Rossellini
