Jezebel


Jezebel, your devilish charms
Are too much to ignore.
I find myself drawn closer,
Though I've walked this road before.

You're evil, yes,
And vicious.
There's no denying that.
But your light arms malicious
Are where my love is at.

Jezebel, you rip and tear
Young men's dreams and hearts.
But when the gauntlet's been thrown down
They can't bear to see you part.

You're terrible,
And cruel as well,
That's plain for all to see.
For whom indeed is the tolling bell?
Why can't you leave me be?

Jezebel, I wish I could
Pack up and leave today.
But your enchantments are too strong for me,
So against my will I'll stay.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
