The Dark Side Of The Star
The dark side!
The dark side of the star;
Licking it like a cat,
Walking like a robot,
Cooking like a chef,
Singing like a bird,
Barking like a dog!
Dancing like a bear,
Working like wolf!
But, when i think of you,
The sky turns from grey to blue.
Sleeping like a horse,
Chewing like a squirrel,
Hissing like snake,
Drinking like a fool! !
And, sitting in the train of harlots.
Climbing like a monkey!
Moving like a cow,
Swimming like a duck,
Speaking like a parrot!
But, it is better to marry than,
To burn in lust and to rape women.
