mephistopheles

in the days of mephistopheles we’ll ride the great machine
through the back streets of vienna where the circus hasn’t been
we will whistle into corners where the fuzzy people are
sing the dutchman is a sailor and he’s coming from afar
and even though we love him with a passion that is pure
he’ll never come between us since he never comes ashore

we’ll take our sordid pleasures till the tolling of the bell
tells us that the day is over, time to go to hell
but here’s the thing that you should know before you wave goodbye
a cold new day’s a-dawning if you look beyond the sky
and every lie you’ve ever told and every heart you broke
will not seem quite so funny when you’re the punchline of the joke

    Applause for this one! As usual, the best line is the last one, with all the other lines clearly pointing to it with jealousy as they are never as good, no matter how hard they try! 😀 😀

    • Thank you 😀

      It got away from me in the second verse, but that is not unusual, and I quite liked where it ended up 😀
