Rufus Wainwright – Damned Ladies lyrics

Desdemona, do not go to sleep
Brown-eyed tosca, don't believe the creep
I see it in his eyes

And why don't you ladies believe me when I'm screaming
I always believe you

Violetta, keep your man locked up
Or like cio-cio
You will end up burned by love or sickness

And why don't you ladies believe me when I'm screaming
I always believe you

There is a knock at the door
Tell me it's not mimi again
Or is it Gilda's waiting passion to be stabbed and killed again

Katya kabanova, why did you marry him?
You knew his mother was a bitch
And would keep hold of him
Oh pamina got away from mama
Before the age of rambo opera

Damned ladies of orpheus
Your arias cause a stir in my sad and lonely heart
