Virgin Queen

from New West Town by Bard Michael

The Rookery exclusive

lyrics

Maddy was desperate 
Maddy was broke 
She needed a job 
She needed a home 
And the only establishment in town that paid 
A young woman a good wage 
Was the hookshop at the end of Meandering Lane

So she summoned her courage 
Moved to Dead Man’s Inn 
Composed a brilliant business stratagem 
‘I’ve got the go to make it without dancing on my back’ 
She told the ladies of the line 
And they just laughed and laughed and laughed 
So she explained 

Now ladies...

It’s all about salting the proper Johns 
Exclusivity is what you really want 
An application fee does more than tease and taunt 
It’ll add a bit more scratch to your honey pot 
To your honey pot

Set you prices high far beyond their means 
Promise them the sky a coochie made for a king 
A little down payment never hurt no one 
Keep ’em coming back for more before ya give ’em some 
Before ya give ’em some

Pause 
Stall ’em 
Give ’em a refrain 
I’ve got this genius notion called lay-away

And when their accounts’ paid up 
The option is yours 
But I’ve gotta six-gun that says 
I ain’t no whore 
I ain’t no whore

Maddy made a fortune roved from town to town 
Set up shop and jacked the Johns 
Before their pants were down 
You might think her a thief but she had a sense of class 
The only wagtail in the West to earn a wage 
Without dancing on her back

Maddy-O Maddy-O 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
All the Johns dream of Maddy 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
All the Johns they dream of Maddy 
The Virgin Queen

Maddy made a fortune roved from town to town 
Set up shop and jacked the Johns 
Before their pants were down 
You might think her a thief but she had a sense of class 
The only wagtail in the West to earn a wage 
Without dancing on her back

Maddy-O Maddy-O 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
All the Johns dream of Maddy 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
Maddy-O Maddy-O 
All the Johns they dream of Maddy 
The Virgin Queen
