lyrics

Don't think I'm willing to pay cash
For the lavender straw of azure hue
You sell by flaunting a daring lash
As if for the devious hypocrite to
Hang discretely upon the walls
Of the most fundamental stations
For the stomach the jeers and growls
At being reborn to blue sensations

Better to pin it up aloft
Amid and overgrown tuft of hair
So that the wholesome stalk may waft
You as a zephyr, Pamela, or
Bear to the husband you entice
The very first fruits of your lice

Oh deluxe ebony hall
Where to beguile a king
Celebrated garlands are twisted in death
You are but a proud lie composed of nothing
In the eyes of the solitary
Dazzled by his faith
