    I am Violet the Organ Grinder
    and I grind all the live long day
    I live for the organ, that I am grinding
    I'll die, but I won't go away

    I am Violet the Organ Grinder
    and I grind all the live long day
    I live for the organ, that I am grinding
    I'll die, but I won't go away

    Ooh, wait a minute, I think you better trip on this
    Ooh, wait a minute, I think you better trip on this

    I was on my way to another room
    when an image of you sweetly
    appeared in the mirror
    perhaps you recall
    you and I were neatly
    in the middle of a Crystal Ball
    that now serves as a reminder
    on the wall of you and I the organ grinder
    in the greatest concert of them all

    I am Violet the Organ Grinder {chorus in the background}
    and I grind all the live long day
    I live for the organ, that I am grinding
    I'll die, but I won't go away

    did you know that I still have your stockings?
    I keep 'em in a drawer next to your brazier
    come hither, my sweet, lend me your attention,
    come hither lend my your ear
    I do believe that my piano was stolen
    I do believe that you want me near
    Well I can deal with a sucker
    if he's in your mouth,
    but I can't deal with insincere
    I'm the one that lives in your heart
    you love me, no matter what you say
    swear you don't miss the organ grinder
    grinding on you every day

    I am Violet the Organ Grinder (I am Violet the Organ Grinder)
    and I grind all the live long day (and I grind all the live long day)
    (check this out)
    Ooh, wait a minute, I think you better trip on this

    I took all the pictures you gave me,
    and I placed them right under my bed
    and I pumped and I pumped
    'til the 'gasm much as jumped
    from my feet to the top of my head, oh boy!

    I'm Violet the Organ Grinder {chorus in the background}
    and I grind all the live long day
    I live for the organ, that I am grinding
    I'll die, but I will not go away

    Ooh, wait a minute, I think you better trip on this

    Like a puppy, I licked your devotion
    from your neck from your eyes from your ears
    when you cry, I became your emotion,
    and if you ever cry like that again
    I'll be here

    'cause I'm Violet the Organ Grinder {chorus in the background}
    and I grind all the live long day
    I live for the organ, that I'm grinding
    I'll die, but I won't go away

    not even...
    [peace to the mutha]
    (who turned the mother out)

    [peace to the mutha]
    (who turned the mother out)

    I am Violet the Organ Grinder
    and I grind all the live long day
    I live for the organ, that I am grinding
    I'll die, but I won't go away
