Please girl, don't say I'm gone
I am coming back tonight
On that big, brute wind, on the Summer front tonight
I take you out to Torreón, I take you by the hand
I teach you how to cope, don't I?
Now introduce your friends
It takes a long, long time, to get back in that groove of mind
If you see complacency, just tell her I'm alright
See, I've been doubting deity and gambling my rights
I bid high and I aimed true and never asked for more
But when I bid on you, oh girl, I was sleeping on your floor
I don't know the time, but you weary me, I've got to unwind
Tuesday night you suck your wine and spin life like a game
And when you pass out on my floor you ask me for your name
And I say, "honey if I knew, I'd hit you with a hint"
But I don't even want to know, so I call you MEDUSA
I ain't afraid of you, I shield my eyes and I carry that blade through to you
Cleopatra where's your throne and what is it to me?
Bring back all my animals and find something to eat
Carve your name into my bed and give your maids what for
But they all denounced your kingdom while you were smoking on my porch
I can't figure why, but when you left I was heavy as the Shanghai sky
