If You Knew, Boo Hoo
If only you knew, you dumb, gullible whore,
Sitting there with that inane smile on your face,
You silly, empty-headed, crass little bore,
Why do you think I have brought you to this place?
If only you knew, you would walk out the door,
But now there's no escape, you're not in the race,
The woman I really want has said good-bye,
So you, you cheap pushover, will have to die!
If only you knew what had happened before,
When my Trish left me with a scornful grimace,
I'll get her back for that, I'll even the score,
I'll wring her neck, and I'll leave without a trace:
If only you knew what I wanted you for,
We are not, you moron, about to embrace,
My plans for killing Trish must not go awry,
So I'm practising on you, Miss Passer-By!
