The Czar of Love is Dead

The Czar of Love is Dead:


Tell all the girls on the street

and the boys in diners with stars in their eyes.

Yes, the czar of love is dead

he’s gone and floated up the river.


It’ll appear in the paper by next dawn

and the paramours will weep

and the wives will shutter the blinds.

Yes, the czar of love is dead

and he’s not coming back again


he was overthrown by the few who disagreed

or maybe the many who didn’t.

They shot and buried him in the fen.


Yes, the czar of love is dead

dead, dead, dead.
