All alone


thought he loved me but he blagged me.

Brought me here and then he shagged me,

woe is me poor Ariadne.

Never had to cook a meal,

i killed a bird

i stabbed a seal,

i broke my hand and now i feel

I got the shit end of this deal.

My dad's the king and now i quote....

"bring him out and cut his throat"

poor Theseus, i could not stand it

though a rogue, a theif, a bandit.....

such a pretty man was he,

i tricked the guards and set him free

Ariadne come with me

A king at home

my queen you'll be..........

And now i'm staring at the sea,

his ship's a million miles from me.

I'm bleeding and my life is slipping

from my grasp

my head is tipping,

at my toes the rats are nipping

at my flesh the birds are ripping.

Ariadne come with me,

Ariadne dies at sea.
