1. Heartbreak 101

From the recording 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
