The Head That Wears The Crown

O sweet girl

How young you were just yesterday

How small and fleeting you seemed to be

Tucked away in a little city

So much room to breathe

 

Then you fled on the backs of others

To places far and near

Kissing everything you could

Those you’ve touched so feared

 

O sweet girl how far you’ve come

Danced at every party under the sun

So soon a household name

Rolling off the tongue

 

Leaving us in mourning

The wake so cruel and long

O sweet girl forgive us

We really need you gone
