BLOODY MARY



You faded into my life
One rainy afternoon.
The sky was grey
And I was bored.
If only I'd remembered
What my mama said (it's true):
"Son, do not touch
What you cannot afford."

I knew you were a vampire
By the way you weren't reflected
In my mirror.
I knew you were a vampire
By the way you went and flashed
Those fangs at me.
Knew you were a vampire,
But when you told me
That you really loved me -
I was stupid
Enough to believe
You loved me for myself.

Oh no, no, no -
You were a vampire,
And I was your breakfast.
You were a vampire,
And I was your luncheon and tea.
You were a vampire, darlin',
And I was your late-night snack.
You sucked my dry
And turned your back on me.
Yes, you sucked
And then you turned
On me.

Oo-la-la-la-la
Bloody Mary.
I was a hell of a fool to think
Some thing like you
Could ever love me.
All I ever
Was to you
Was a goddam drink.
