"Playboy Mommy (Demo)" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
In my platforms I hit the floor
Fell face down
Didn't help my brain out
Then the baby came before I found
The magic how to keep her happy
I never was the fantasy
Of what you want wanted me to be
Don't judge me so harsh little girl
So you got a playboy mommy
But when you tell em my name
And you want to cross that bridge all on your own
Little girl they'll do you no harm
Cause they know your playboy mommy
But when you tell em my name
From here to Birmingham
I got a few friends

I never was there was there when it counts
I get my way
You're so like me
You seemed ashamed
Ashamed that I was
A good friend of American soldiers
I'll say it loud here by your grave
Those angels can't ever take my place

Somewhere where the the orchids grow
I can't find those church bells
That played when you died
Played Gloria
Talkin' 'bout Hosanah

Don't judge me so harsh little girl
You got a playboy mommy, come home
But when you tell them soldiers my name
Cross that bridge all on your own
Little girl they'll do you no harm
They know your playboy mommy
But I'll be home
I'll be home to take you in my arms

    General Comment...Come, let us go while we are in our prime ;
    And take the harmless folly of the time.
    We shall grow old apace, and die
    Before we know our liberty.
    Our life is short, and our days run
    As fast away as does the sun ;
    And, as a vapour or a drop of rain
    Once lost, can ne'er be found again,
    So when or you or I are made
    A fable, song, or fleeting shade,
    All love, all liking, all delight
    Lies drowned with us in endless night.
    Then while time serves, and we are but decaying,
    Come, my Corinna, come, let's go a-Maying...

    General Commentand, probably meaningless, but

    "Corinna (or Korinna) was an Ancient Greek poet, traditionally attributed to the 6th century BC. According to ancient sources such as Plutarch and Pausanias, she came from Tanagra in Boeotia, where she a teacher and rival to the better-known Theban poet Pindar. Although two of her poems survive in epitome, most of her work is preserved in 2nd century BC papyrus fragments.. she focused on local myths, and *drew parallels between the world of mythology and ordinary human behaviour.*"

    *I think it's interesting that Tori has often done much the same thing. if she's really saying Corina in this demo, I can't tell
