Mata Hari

(The Crumbling Empire Of White People)

Greet the eye of dawn
Before she puts all her clothes back on
Mata Hari's rising
Soon she will be gone

I lost my heart to Mata Hari
It cost a lot of vo-dee-o-do
Like a cross between a safari
And a rodeo

Handsome stallions
And young rapscallions
All suave and valiant
And debonair
Robust and gallant
Get knocked off balance
About the talents
Of Mata Hari
Sleep in heavenly release

I watched her as she woke
I'm sure I heard the last words she spoke
She said "Death will never get me
This is all a joke"

I lost my heart to Mata Hari
First she pulled me in then she pushed
I'm like the lion on Daktari
Cross-eyed in the bush

Handsome stallions
And young rapscallions
All suave and valiant
And debonair
Robust and gallant
Get knocked off balance
By all the talents
Of Mata Hari
Sleep in heavenly release

Margaretha
Eyes like Shiva
I remember
Nightly fevers
When double-love covered up secret schemes
And unrequited dreams

They took her from the cell
Before the sound of the morning bell
The guns were done by sunrise
And Mata Hari fell

I lost my heart to Mata Hari
On walks along the banks of the Seine
She chewed me up like calamari
And spewed me out again

I lost my heart to Mata Hari
Queen of steamy espionage
Broke apart but never sorry
Life's a cool montage . . .
