lyrics

So is that the rule? Is it the way of the world?
Some men just appreciate a beautiful girl
Well someone yelled it
But someone said it first
"Some people don't appreciate a monstrous thirst"
And Portia said it best
A pound of flesh is never just a pound of flesh
Blood was spilled and death was imminent
a pound of flesh is always permanent

And Portia said it best
That a pound of flesh
Is never
Just a pound of flesh
Poor Portia said it best
A pound of flesh
Is never
Just a pound of flesh

So that's the rule, it's the way of the world
Some men just appreciate a beautiful girl
Well if that's the rule, I'll learn to hate anew
Pluck feathers from my plume
Pluck feathers from my plume
And Portia said it best
A pound of flesh is never just a pound of flesh
Blood was spilled and death was imminent
A pound of flesh is always permanent

And Portia said it best
That a pound of flesh is never just a pound of flesh
Poor Portia said it best
That a pound of flesh
Is never
Just a pound of flesh
Is never
Just a pound of flesh
Is never
Is never
Is never
Is never
Is never
Is never
