Don't Try Abortion


A dark rewrite of Queen's classic Don't Try Suicide

A-one two three four one

Yeah

Okay
Don't do it, don't you abort that baby
Don't do that
Not an unborn life
Don't don't don't
Don't do that
You've got a good thing growing inside now
So why
Oh why woman do you wanna throw it away now?
Don't do it don't do it
Don't
No, no, no
Not to an unborn life

Don't try abortion
It's not worth it
Don't try abortion
Nobody will love you anymore if you do
Don't try abortion
You're just gonna hate yourself for it
Don't try abortion
About that baby growing inside
Girl, you've just gotta
Gotta give a damn

So you think it's your only way out?
Think you can just let that doctor slash that babe to bits
Before time runs out
Oh girl, before your family or friends find out
You gave your naughty bits out
Not a virgin anymore
Don't do that
Try try try baby
Not to do that to an unborn life growing inside
Don't do that-you got a good thing growing inside of you now
So why you wanna throw that all away?
Don't do it, don't do it
Don't

Don't try abortion
It's not worth it
Don't try abortion
Nobody will love you anymore if you do
Don't try abortion
You're just gonna hate yourself for it
Don't try abortion
About that baby growing inside
Girl, you've just gotta
Gotta give a damn

You can get help
Look at me
I'll be there if you need help, my help
(Yeah yeah)
Give that baby their life
Don't go hanging them for your youth's one foolish mistake
It's okay, okay, okay
You just can't play God anytime you feel like it
A little bit of attention
You gotta learn how to give it
A little bit of affection
You'll learn how to love it
Abortion, abortion, abortion
Abortion, abortion, abortion
Abortion
Oh no, no, no girl don't try it
Try it tonight

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
