I was surprised on the day I died
The last thing on my mind that day in ‘55
Was twisting off my neck
I hope she’s satisfied that I died
I’m the real deal of sleaze and I deserve my fate
Because I fell in love

My head was full of her heartbeat

I lived my life as a carnivore
I’m the same in death as I was before in life
Sweeping morsels off their feet
I delighted playing games
I lived my life for the look of shame in a woman’s eyes
So to my surprise

My head’s still full of her heartbeat

Now it’s your life I seek to save
By sending a message from beyond my grave
Please beware the lure of love
Ignore it at your peril
Or grab your neck and twist
It’s a better way to die
If you’re a man as I am
Love is why

My head’s still full of her heartbeat
