Bloodthirsty

An accident, just a fender bent;
everyone wants to see.
It's stop and go just to watch the show;
not much to see but it's free.
People on the bus
look down with disgust;
or is it really lust?
It's just:
No one's hurt, what a shame.
No one claimed a bit of fame.
What a shame, what a shame.

Someone's been harmed; it's a broken arm.
See the pain cross his face.
Now someone's hurt; blood on his shirt.
Everybody wants a taste.
A girl passing by
said it made her cry
Isn't that just a lie?
She sighs:
No one's dead, what a shame.
No one claimed a bit of fame.
What a shame, what a shame.

    Bloodthirsty, praise the Mother Mary
    Have mercy, who we gonna bury?
    Has anyone bled? Is anyone dead?
    Let it be; let me see.
    Let it be; let me see.

A good man down, people gather round
to watch life at its end.
Blood in the street turns to meet and greet,
And nobody saw a thing.
On someone's last day,
they pretend to pray;
then they turn, walk away.
They say:
Someone's dead, what a shame.
Someone claimed a bit of fame.
What a shame, what a shame.

A storm blew through; the waters rose too.
So many lives were lost.
The TV crews come report the news
Of the dollars that it cost.
It’s for charity
so I’ll cut my fee
and say, “Hey, look at me.”
The plea:
Someone's dead, what a shame.
Someone claimed a bit of fame.
What a shame, what a shame.

    Bloodthirsty, praise the Mother Mary
    Have mercy, who we gonna bury?
    Has anyone bled? Is anyone dead?
    Let it be; let me see.
    Let it be; let me see.

Many have cried, and many have died.
That's the way it's always been.
Many men fell; we say “war is hell”
then start it all up again.
All the people say
“We will change our ways.”
What about yesterday.
We pray:
Someone's dead, what a shame.
Someone claimed a bit of fame.
What a shame, what a shame.

    Bloodthirsty, praise the Mother Mary
    Have mercy, who we gonna bury?
    Has anyone bled? Is anyone dead?
    Let it be; let me see.
    Let it be; let me see.
