They've come to find you odalisque
As the light dies horribly
On a fire escape you walk
All rare and resolved to drop

And when they find you odalisque
They will rend you terribly
Stitch from stitch til all
Your linen and limbs will fall

Lazy lady had a baby girl
And a sweet sound it made
Raised on paradise, peanut shells and dirt
In the railroad cul-de-sac
