The Ballad of Melody Nelson

Pour l'amitié,

L'amitié entre hommes et femmes


Parce que, il y a toujours

Sous jacent

Le désir animal

This is the story of

Melody Nelson

Apart from me no one

Ever took her in his arms

Under her thumb

Eyes in the sun

Oh my Melody mine

She has nothing but love

Poor Melody Nelson

Her life was more said than done

But her days were numbered nil

Count fourteen falls

Fifteen on calls

A baby tiger was

Melody Nelson

Forever purring in the sun

Just as dangerous as a child

With a gun, shooting me down

Oh my Melody mine

Melody Nelson

Still playing hurting games for fun

As adorable as dumb

Deaf to the sound

To what's going down
