Off With His Head
It was 4am and I had not slept one wink
VIP, dance floor, we just went - drink after drink
I remember it like yesterday, my first time in the City of Gold
A minor, 16 at the time, I had no idea what was about to unfold.
I was now in the land of tycoons, it felt like a brave new world
Jo’burg had its grip on me, around its finger I twisted and twirled
Having expensive dishes of seafood, the world was my oyster
Good girl gone bad, finally out of my cloister.
Trying to fit in - short skirt, heavy makeup, and a Brazilian weave
Almost naked actually, but still managed to wear my heart on my sleeve
The trouble? Worth it. The guy? One of a kind
Infatuation turned lust, lust turned love is blind.
I had fallen for Casper as he would soon vanish into thin air
Good riddance to the bastard, clearly he didn't care
For a jobless person he sure was a piece of work
A sorry sight to humankind, a womanising jerk.
I would curse him in anger, “Off with his head!”
Sleepless nights, wishing I had sent him packing before he got me into bed
Thinking, if my family found out, what would be the easiest way to commit suicide
If not that then I would be the one going away for homicide.
I found out that he has two daughters around my age, and a loving wife
Zelda, by the time you read this I’ll be long gone, I’ve decided to take my own life
Enjoy yours while it lasts, I hope for your children’s sake you didn’t get it too
After everything you’ve done for him, how could he do this to you?
