Music Fix: ‘What Would Katharine Hepburn Say"

I’ve never heard of this band Sparks but I stumbled upon this awesome and obscure song when I was brushing up on my Katharine Hepburn facts (aka editing the Katharine Hepburn wikipedia page).

Ron Mael of Sparks wrote the song, “What Would Katharine Hepburn Say”. It was originally performed by Chritie Hayden. Here is the best video clip I could find of the song. Enjoy!

And here are the lyrics since the video quality ain’t so great.

If you really want to have my loving
All you’ve got to do is not be lazy
If you really wanna have my loving
All you’ve got to be is Spencer Tracy
All you’ve got to do is show me kindness
And a kind of sensible awareness

What would Katherine Hepburn did, were she in my play?
What would Katherine Hepburn do, were she in my shoes?
What would Katherine Hepburn say, here behind the wheel?

There are certain people I would cling to
People who are good with their decisions
There are certain people I would sing to
People with unpopular positions
eople who have never been to Paris
People who don’t ever look embarrassed

What would Katharine Hepburn say, were she in my play?
What would Katharine Hepburn do, were she in my shoes?
What would KH feel, here beind the wheel?
Of my shiny new car, would she feel,
That I’m going too far, would she feel?
Would she feel?
What does she appear to say? I can’t hear her (x3)

It’s not as if our love is like a mountain
It’s not as if our love is like a river
It’s not as if it’s deeper than the ocean
It’s the kind of love that gives me shivers
It’s the kind of love that don’t need moonlight
It’s the kind of love that don’t get uptight
I’m sorry

What would Katharine Hepburn say, were she in my play?
What would Katharine Hepburn do, were she in my shoes?
What would Katherine Hepburn feel, here beind the wheel?
What would Katharine Hepburn say, I can’t hear her (x3)
