Me Too Eartha Kitt, Me Too

I Want to Be Evil

I’ve posed for pictures with Iv’ry Soap
I’ve petted stray dogs, and shied clear of dope
My smile is brilliant, my glance is tender
But I’m noted most for my unspoiled gender
I’ve been made Miss Reingold, though I never touch beer
And I’m the person to whom they say, “You’re sweet, my dear”
The only etchings I’ve seen have been behind glass
And the closest I’ve been to a bar was at ballet class
Prim and proper, the girl who’s never been kissed
I’m tired of being pure and not chased

Like something that seeks it’s level
I wanna go to the devil

I wanna be evil, I wanna spit tacks
I wanna be evil and cheat at jacks
I wanna be wicked, I wanna tell lies
I wanna be mean and throw mud pies

I want to wake up in the morning
With that dark brown taste
I wanna see some dissipation in my face
I wanna be evil, I wanna be mad
But more than that, I wanna be bad

I wanna be evil and trump an ace
Just to see my partner’s face
I wanna be nasty, I wanna be cruel
I wanna be daring, I wanna shoot pool

And in the theatre, I want to change my seat
Just so I can step on everybody’s feet

I wanna be evil, I wanna hurt flies
I wanna sing songs like the guy who cries
I wanna be horrid, I wanna drink booze
And whatever I’ve got, I am eager to lose

I wanna be evil, little evil me
Just as mean and evil as I can be

Is that my face

in the mirror

are those my eyes looking at me

with cool, cruel indifference?


I reach out my hand, draw it back, extend  a finger

tap, tap, tap

Is anybody home?

Are those my teeth,

is that my hair

when did those lines around my mouth appear?


That can’t be me

wearing that listless, expressionless face

has it ever dreamed, schemed or plotted

an escape, a murder or revenge?


Tap tap tap

against the mirror

clouding it with the cold that escapes from my lungs

and clings to it like poison gas

on a battlefield

from Once Upon A Time.


That can’t be my face.

It’s just so
