Why don't you try to live alone?
Do you really need his hands for your passion?
Do you really need his heart for your throne?
Do you need his labour for your baby?
Do you need his beast for the bone?
Do you need to hold a leash to be a lady?
I know you're going to make, make it on your own
Why don't your try to forget him?
Just open up your dainty little hand
You know this life is filled with many sweet companions
Many satisfying one-night stands
Do you want to be the ditch around a tower?
Do you want to be the moonlight in his cave?
Do you want to give your blessing to his power
As he goes whistling past his daddy, past his daddy's grave
I'd like to take you take you to the ceremony
Well, that is if I remember the way
You see Jack and Jill they're going to join their misery
I'm afraid it's time for everyone to pray
You can see they've finally taken cover
They're willing, yeah they're willing to obey
Their vows are difficult, they're for each other
So let nobody put a loophole, a loophole in their way
