Lady godiva, hair dressed so demurely Pats the head of another curly-haired boy Just another toy Sick with silence she weeps sincerely Saying words that have all so clearly been said So long ago
Draperies wrapped gently 'round her shoulders Life has made her that much bolder now That she found out how
Dressed in silk, clad in lace and envy Pride and joy of the latest penny fair Pretty passing care
Her hair today now are dipped in the water Making love to every poor daughter's son Isn't it fun?
Now today, propping grace with envy Lady godiva peers to see if anyone's there And hasn't a care
The doctor's coming, the nurse thinks sweetly Turning on the machines that neatly pump air The body lies bare [Lady Godiva's Operation lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com] Shaved and hairless, what once was screaming Now lies silent and almost sleeping The brain must have gone away
Strapped securely to the white table Ether causes the body to wither and writhe Underneath the white light
The doctor arrives, 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 tube's 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 my count of ten - The head won't move!
