The Jacquelines - Don't Kill Your Darlings
I once had a lover named Gigi He was a french guy with roots in Parigi It didn't take too long before it dawned on me That Gigi loved the bottle more than he loved me And so my friends said: "This guy won't give you no satisfaction!" And then my conscience said: "You're a victim of carnal attraction" So I packed my bags and left him standin' there And Gigi has been lonely ever since - so Listen to me fellas, if you think that the world revolves around you Well don't - don't you hurt your darlings, or your darlings just might end up hurting you (dudut dut dudoo) And then came a fella named Mickey I'll tell you the truth: he was a hell of a sickie He kept me way too long for it was plain to see That he loved fifty others simultaneously And then my sister said: "Oh no, not again, please!" My other sister said: "Come on now, keep smiling, cheese!" And so I packed my bags and left him standing there And Mickey has been crying ever since - so Listen to me fellas, you may have some charms and some good tactics too But don't - don't mistreat your darlings, or your darlings might end up mistreating you (dudut dut duduu) Then finally I met Fredric I thought alright baby let us go steadric We didn't hesitate because apparently I was the one for him and he was perfect for me And then my momma said: "Well THAT was a tough one!" And then my poppa said: "Grazie a Dio, finalmente!" Here's a story with a happy ending Though Freddy hears me preachin' ev'ryday -oh Listen to me fellas, you may have the looks and your heart may be true But don't - don't you kill your darlings, or your darlings just might end up, if you get the message aise your hand up (shout), or your darlings just might end up killing you! That's right, that's what they'll do!
