    Oh my love, my sweet love
    How your kiss lingers strange on my lips

    The faint stench of hay
    Remnants of clay
    That rash on your head
    Peanuts in bed

    It strikes me all so very clearly
    I sense there is something, a miss

    I was in love, Mendel the Magnificent
    He was the circus's resident knife thrower
    Strong man and large mammal care taker
    Big, handsome, not too bright
    Oh, he was perfect

    I loved the thrill of being strapped to his target
    Knives piercing the wood all around me
    The intensity of his concentration
    Boreing right into me

    On stage we were naturals, daring and delicate
    Daggers and velvet, a breathtaking sight

    With tragedy always just inches away
    Our love guided blades hit just right

    Then one day I noticed a hint of indifference in Mendel
    He stopped throwing his knives as close into me as usual
    And a woman can notice the details, you know?

    He was lingering late at the large mammal tent every night
    I knew he had found another

    That greasy, lying bastard!
    Why would he do it? Why would he throw away our love? Our life? Our act?
    How could he have possibly found somebody more appealing than me?

    How careless, ungrateful and dumb could he be
    To destroy what we had for some tryst in a tent
    The was no one in town half as charming as me
    So I followed him to see where he went

    As I snuck behind the flapping canvas
    The sight I saw was cause for alarm
    Mendel in an elephant's arms

    Suddenly it all made sense
    The stench, the peanuts
    How he wouldn't shut up about what a great specimen she was
    Always giving her extra hay

    I remember the way she looked at him when he hosed her down
    Balancing on the stool just right, swinging her tail at him in that way

    Oh, I should have known
    It was all just so bestial and humiliating

    A woman's scorn is one thing
    But losing out to a saggy, rough skinned, overweight
    Forty pounds of dung a day, subjugated zoo species

    The geometry staggering
    How does he manage?
    He's hung like a horse but not elephant size

    He must need assistance to cover the distance
    Does he crawl in and rub on the sides?

    You can never mend a heart so trampled
    There's nothing left for me to do
    His affair will be through!

    Oh my love, my sweet love
    How your kiss lingers strange on my lips
