She got a red dress kicking up pretty heels
She was playing the money game
Giving those men a thrill
Spending nights in sin city
Wearing all the upper class women down
But she did not, she could not
Change her name to Jezebel
Never once did she try
No no no she couldn't change her name to Jezebel
I got an army then I gave them spears
Then I seized the power
And I went around for ahundred years
I was doing alright
Taking what I need and what I wanted to
I did not and I could not
Change my name to Charlemagne
Never once did I try
No no no I couldn't change my name to
Charlemagne ... no way
Sailin off past Jupiter
Venus and my skies
Then I'm heading back for the water
It's coming as no surprise
That I'm doing alright
They're even gonna check my fingerprints
But I was not and I never could be
Never could be no astronaut
No never once did I try
No no no no I'd never be no astronaut
And I did not and I could not
Change my name to Charlemage
