  A chord diagramG+G                                  A chord diagramFF
Snakes and snails and alcohol, his daddy's fist thrown through the wall,

Some man is lying in the dirt, some woman's crying that he's hurt,

The lights go down, the people roar, they're cheering on the matador,

I watch them in their ancient dance, and I know I never stood a chance,

'Cause while other demons prance and clown,    it's vanity that takes you down,

Some man is bleeding in the dirt, some woman's crying that she's hurt,

But who are we without the thrill, with - out the dance, without the kill?
    A chord diagramFF                            A chord diagramG+G
And he is bull and matador, and I'm the mother, and the whore,
