Back up, sticky lady
Back down, back to the root
'Cause uptown at the Apollo
They'll strip you down to your birthday suit

Rage more, pretty lady
Suckers think that they know the truth
Down south, the apostle
Stringing up all the funny fruit

Oh, Bloody Mary, oh
Is it all just part of your game?
Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine
Think by now we'd give you a name

Flashback: 1970
You can act just like you're a brute
It's not bad for being empty
You'll have a cause you can contribute to

Until that, take your pennies
Bringing 'em back to your ruse
'Cause in fact, you can't exempt me
From the taxes that you boost

Oh, it's a circle, mm
Now the country is under control
Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine
What you just ate is gonna rot out your soul

Oo-ooh

There is no exception
If you wanna be Attila the Hun
'Cause you still can't get your pension
From the pocket of everyone

Baby, baby, baby, baby, don't be a liar
It's not fair to make us all guess
Just who when you conspire
Who's at your side? You protecting the best?

Oh, it's a circle
Bloody Maries never eat game
Fine, fine, fine, fine, fine
Think by now we'd see you're all the same

Oo-ooh
Oo-ooh

Selfish, but who can blame you?
You're just a product of the world,
The one that you created,
The one that grew up from out of the pearl

Now baby, it's so very simple
Who's responsible? Who will confess?
Until we can build a temple,
We're riding beside the midst of the mess

Oh, it's a circle
Bloody Maries and their bloody game
It's all very scary, hey
When we're seeing which ways we're the same

(Oo-ooh) Bloody Mary
Bloody Mary
(Oo-ooh) Bloody Mary
So bloody, so bloody, so bloody ...
