As above, so below, place your bets
Which way the head will roll
Made in your image we are at least
As twisted and mean as thee
'Fore your eyes, what a curious site
Your children have turned on you
And you say, you don't sleep well at night
Well, we'll take care of that for you

Belle Marie Antoinette
"Love the pearls!"
They'll make a great tourniquet
Never did as you should and you claim
It was all for our veryown good
'Twas a lie, a magnificent lie
Now, your subjects have turned on you
And you claim you had lots on your mind
Well, we'll take care of that for you


:::Chorus:::V
Get that (this) damn thing off her (my) neck
I'm the head of the board now I'm bored of her (my) head
Sharpen up the blade boys, what are you waiting for?
Here's where we all get ahead!
Wipe that damn smile off your face
Or we'll lop it off clean with our new guillotine
Sharpen up the blade boys, what are you waiting for?
Here's where we all get ahead!
(Bells are now tolling, soon heads will be rolling)
:::


All my troubles, all my pain
Stems from this thing that you call a "brain"
Be my guest, sever me from the source
Of all my agony
What a shame, I've forgotten my name
Without the use of my brain and
"My, bet I'll sleep well tonight!"
Without this head of mine

:::Chorues, with the words in parentheses substituting the previous word or phrase:::


Please Sir, for me, Sir,
Won't you see if you see, Sir?
Oh dear, I dread
I seem to have lost my head
I think I left it about
It fell to the ground
And I kicked it around
Has anyone seen, no need to be mean,
My bloody, fat, ugly head?
Please Miss, for me, Sis,
Won't you see if you see, Sis
It's got black hair
And it's kickin' about in the square
I'm really not totally sure but
I think that it might have rolled into the sewer.
Has anyone seen, no need to be mean,
My bloody, fat, ugly head?

    She cared, sure, but in that aristocratic way where peasants are like family pets. Sure you care for them, but mostly they're beneath your notice. Not to mention how out of touch she was with the concept of peasant life.

    Like history says, someone told her the peasants had no bread and she replied 'well, let them eat cake. ' it wasn't sarcastic or malicious, she just had no concept of cost or the realities of peasant life.

    About marie antoinette. Actually marie cared about her subjects, and the story that she held lavish parties and bought the most expensive clothing were all lies spread about her after her death by her rivals.

    Don't have enough money to buy a house? You not have to worry, because that's achievable to take the loans to resolve such problems. Hence get a credit loan to buy everything you want.
