"The Human Heart" as written by and Stephen Charles/ahrens Flaherty....
In our day-to-day experience
It has always been conceived.
In the operating theater,
It now may be revealed.
I saw the glistening human heart
Lying in repose
So tender and so vulnerable
Beating and exposed

The human heart is a lustrous thing
A wondrous thing
The human heart
Look at the patient lying open wide
It cannot hide
The human heart

It has a passionate temperament
As everybody knows
Gushing grandiose sentiments
As the toilet overthrows
Throwing violent tantrums
And prone to fits of rage
It can't keep still
It rolls around in its rib...cage

The human heart is a preposterous thing
A monstrous thing
The human heart
Enlisting sympathy with vulgar sobs
It pounds and throbs
The human heart

And yet it lives for love and duty
At its own behest
A lifetime through of work to do
With ne'er a moment's rest
Sustaining vital organs
Anointing them with blood
Devout in its vocation
Of vital organhood

The human heart is an untiring thing
An inspiring thing
The human heart
Despite the heartaches of the rolling years
It perseveres
The human heart

What strange abomination
Holds fancy over fact?
What Byzantine mutation
Would love what can't love back?
What kind of freak of nature
Forgives a heinous crime
And leads us towards as yet untravelled
Paths to the sublime?

The human heart is an inscrutable thing
An immutable thing
The human heart is an untiring thing
An inspiring thing
A preposterous thing
A monstrous thing
A lustrous thing
A wondrous thing
The human heart
