CORDELIA’S SONG

Ashes to ashes - Dust to dust
Friends stab you in the front
So who can you trust ?

Everyone’s on the take
Like the marriage of true minds
The Brave New World is a fake

A stitch in time saves nine
Unless you’re already dead
What did the Golem do in his spare time?
Sew his feet to his head?

Goneril and Reagen
The bastard sons two ravens
Poked two eyeballs out a skull
Fed them to the heavens

“To be or not to Goddam be”
That’s one way of putting it
“To be or …. What ?”
So the other sod would interpret it

Life was meant to not be easy
Though it was meant to be enjoyed
Bummer that it gets so cheesy
When the plot is overtoyed

Are you a traitor to your sex ?
Steal who others have betrothen ?
Betray your sisters just to vex ?
Can’t steal a man who won’t be stolen

Nothing comes of nothing
So our fathers drop the bomb
And they don’t see the Fool’s their daughter
Nor that Edgar is Mad Tom

Daddy daddy quite unsteady
How does your garden grow?
With blood and bone and dung and loam
And ashes that we throw
Daddy daddy quite unsteady
How does your garden grow?
With blood and bone and songs sweet moan
And some blood of my own

And mother who were you - you I never knew?
Who used to sing a song or two
Before you said: “ I do….I do “

On the white cliffs of Dover
There grew a French clover
A blind man did find it
Till his heart led him over

Daddy daddy quite unsteady
How does your garden grow?
With blood and bone and dung and loam
And ashes that we throw
Daddy daddy quite unsteady
How does your garden grow?
With blood and bone and songs sweet moan
And some blood of my own

So sing a song of sixpence
Sing it till you croak
it’s heads or tails, heads or tails
That’s the joke !!
