"What'll I Do" as written by and Rufus Wainwright....
Do I disappoint you, in just being human?
And not one of the elements that you can light your cigar on
Why does it always have to be fire?
Why does it always have to be brimstone?
Desire
Cool this body down

Do I disappoint you, in just being lonely?
And not one of the elements that you can call your one and only
Why does it always have to be water?
Why does it always have to be holy wine?
Destruction
Of all mankind

And do I disappoint you?
Do I disappoint you in just being like you?

Tired of being the reason the road has a shoulder
And it could be argued, why they all return to the order
Why does it always have to be chaos?
Why does it always have to be wanderlust?
Sensational
I'm gonna smash your bloody skull
'Cause, baby, no, you can't see inside
No, baby, no, you can't see my soul

Do I disappoint you?
Do I disappoint you?

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful version by Rufus, Martha, and their parents.
    Although it does remind me of watching Birds of a Feather when I was a kid hah.
