Madame Laree

Lyrics and melody written by Anna Madsen Jefferies. All rights reserved. 

Marina was 19 with an aura full of light beams that could pierce any lucky man's heart. Her lips were stained with berries, her voice brought in the canaries because they wanted to sing her song. She was full of beauty, but her heart was rather lonely, so she called upon Madame Laree. Madame Laree with your tarots and tea, won't you bring me company and a man who will love me? Madame Laree with your wisdom and foresight, don't make this pretty girl alone tonight. A handsome villian came to town and Marina's heart fell to the ground, his eyes cast a winsome spell. Well, he broke her heart and left her there to weep upon the city square, and Marina cursed Madame Laree. She was full of fire and her broken heart conspired, so she called upon Madame Laree. Madame Laree with your tarots and tea, won't you bring me company and a man who will love me? Madame Laree with your wisdom and foresight, don't make this pretty girl alone tonight. Marina was 23 with a broken mind and blackened dream, her lovers turned to trophies by her side. Her lips were stained with poisoned words, her life brought darkness close to her, and she felt no happiness inside. She once was full of beauty,  now her heart was rather lonely, so she called upon Madame Laree. Don't make this pretty girl alone tonight. Bring me a love that will last through time. Don't make this pretty girl alone tonight. Don't make the same mistake and fool me twice. Twice. Madame Laree with your tarots and tea, won't you bring me company and a man who will love me? Madame Laree with your wisdom and foresight, don't make this pretty girl alone tonight. Don't make the same mistake and fool me twice.
