Lady godivas operation (Reed)

Lady Godiva here dressed so demurely
Pats the head of another curly hair boy, just another toy
Sick with silence she weeps sincerly
saying words that have oh so clearly been said
so long ago

Draperies wrapped gently around her shoulder
Life has made her that much bolder now
that she's found out how

Dressed in silk, latin, lace and envy
Pride and joy of the latest funny faire
pretty passing care

Hair today now dipped in the water
Making love to every poor daughter's son
isn't it fun

Now today propping frace with envy
Lady Godiva peers to see if anyone's there
and hasn't a care

Doctor is coming the nurse thinks SWEETLY
turning on the machine and NEATLYpump air
the body lies bare
Shaed and hairless what onces was SCREAMING
now lies silent and almost SLEEPING
the brain must have gone away

Strapped securely to the white table
ether caused the body to wither and writhe
underneath the wight light

Doctor arrives with knife and baggage
sees the growth as just so much cabbage
that now
must be cut away

Now comes the moment of Great! Great! Decision!
The doctor is making his first incision!
One goes here - one goes there

The ether tubes leaking says someone who's sloppy
Patient it seems is not so well sleeping
The screams echo up the hall
Don't panic someone give him pentathol instantly
Doctor removes his blade
cagily so from the brain
By m count of ten -
the head won't move
