about

"Well, uncle, what folly I commit, I dedicate to you."

Troilus and Cressida (III.2.99).

lyrics

you watched them latch
the ball to my chain
then looked forlorn
when they led me away
heartily denied
you'd had any say
i wish i'd known then
what i know today

i was just another
trophy to take
and so my loss
was surely your gain
oh that a man
could really tear me in twain
i wish i'd had a way to refrain

you're true as troilus in all of this
and even though you taught me how to kiss
i wish i'd had a way to resist

your every word
could command the stars
but your every glance
shows all that you are
i always knew
we wouldn't get very far
'cause you turned being a liar
into a fine art

you're true as troilus in all of this
and even though you taught me how to kiss
i wish i'd had a way to resist
you're true as troilus in all of this
and even though i taught you where to kiss
i wish i'd had a way to resist

oh that a woman could be so easily bought and sold
when will a woman be considered fully whole
when will a man give up the fight for full control
when will they both be equal

you're true as troilus in all of this
and even though you taught me how to kiss
i wish i'd had a way to resist
you're true as troilus in all of this
and even though i taught you where to kiss
i wish i'd had a way to resist
