Dear Head, do be mellow till the heart mends
Respect your presence till this becomes past tense
Hold your peace, or give it to me
I’ll be glad to keep it, you’ll see!
Perfidious head, I’m the maestro of this dance
Before you challenged me did you like a glance
At the future? Did you see victory?
Or at the past? Don’t you know history?
No one challenges the master and wins
If you’re wondering at the blacks, the whites were myopic
And their whole system then was shit
Clumsy Head, if you must be bad be good at it!
I’ll tell you about Feet my great pal
Because he was nice, he got shoes for Christmas
Arm got a wristwatch, chest got a shirt
And doodle got the permission to flirt
If you behave, dear head, I might buy you presents
Perhaps a hat that’s shaped like a crescent
It’ll be our private thing, you know, our stuff
I’ll forgive you at once and you’ll know love
Oh, Head, I need to make an ally of you
For none of the others can do what you do
With you on my side I’ll break all limits
And watch as my opponents tumble into pits
I don’t want to hurt you Head, oh, I promise
If you join me you’d haven’t to worry about fees
I’d settle them all, wed you a bride
And yours would be a life filled with pride
Oh, grant me my wishes wise you
Let us together call the tune
For I am Heart; I’m drum; I beat
And if you don’t join me you’ll be the undoing of me!
