Heartbreak 101

From Hersey's 2003 album "Whirligig."


Welcome to class, boy

If you want to pass

You better listen to what I sing

About the bite and the sting

Of the birds and bees

Study your history

It ain't no mystery

We've been doing it since Adam and Eve

Born to woo and deceive

To strip and tease

And before your graduation

I’ll show what I've learned

I had an early education

In the art of being burned


Heartbreak 101

Let me show you how it's done

Here at the school

Where the golden rule

Is to do unto others and run

Heartbreak 101


When I was a student

I wasn't very prudent

I thought love would win the day

But it didn't turn out that way

And I paid the price

I had a lover

I never did recover

From the damage of her desire

When a passion that was hot as fire

Suddenly was ice

So with this institution

I want the world to see

There's gonna be retribution

For what she did to me
