Sitting for lunch in a square in this town
(this town that I'm new to),
New fellow from my new town sat me down
And explained it to me:
How when I spin from him I spin from myself,
The center can double the speed of the crust.
Thank you, my treacherous friends.
I'm cringing for myself when I cringe for you.

Hello, my treacherous friends,
And thank you for joining me here tonight.
I brought you all here to discuss, as I must,
How grateful I am for your insights.

With regard to my newborn arachnid kids,
There's something we must discuss:
Perhaps we should sit them down and explain
How not to be saved.
Perhaps you could help me to demonstrate
How your center can keep up it's sickening spin.
Thank you, my treacherous friends.
Perhaps for my children your surface will smile.

Hello, my treacherous friends,
And thank you for joining me here tonight.
I brought you all here to discuss, as I must,
The fate of my children, the spiders.

Hello, my treacherous friends,
And thank you for joining me here tonight.
I brought you all here to discuss, as I must,
How pleasant has been this demise
