Watch “Heads Gonna Roll” on YouTube

  1. 2 of 4
    Since I haven’t talked to you
    I dream about your baby blues and
    Wonder why you stopped getting high
    Even though we were just friends
    I think of us as bookends
    And I’m gonna love you till I die

    And you think you’re going to heaven
    And that I am going to hell
    And that I’m gonna keep on dancing
    ‘Til I hear that ringing bell

    Heads gonna roll, baby
    Everybody’s gotta pay that toll and maybe
    After all is said and done
    We’ll all be skulls
    Heads gonna roll

    Took a little trip up north
    In a borrowed convertible red Porsche
    With a narcoleptic poet from Duluth
    And we disagreed about everything
    From Elliott Smith to Grenadine
    He fell asleep and I put up the roof

    And he took me to a graveyard
    I thought he’d kill me there
    And he kissed me on the corner
    While the nuns of Harlem stared

    Oh, heads gonna roll, baby
    Everybody’s gotta pay that toll and maybe
    After all is said and done
    We’ll all be skulls
    Heads gonna roll

    Smoking Marlboro cigarettes
    Almost makes me forget about
    Riding on a private jet with you
    I hope the sycophants in Marrakesh
    Make you feel your very best
    Anonymity must make you blue

    And you think I’m going to heaven
    And that you are going to hell
    With your back to the medina
    As if you were in jail

    Oh, heads gonna roll, baby
    Everybody’s gotta pay that toll and maybe
    After all is said and done
    We’ll all be skulls
    Heads gonna roll

    Heads gonna roll, ladies
    We’re gonna drink until they close and maybe
    A little bit of hooking up
    Is good for the soul
    Heads gonna roll

    Songwriters: Jenny Diane Lewis
