The Golden Egg Bug Blues

Lyrics by Brenna and Megaera Lorenz
To be sung in the style of Robert Johnson's blues.

A praying mantis woman, she got a heart just like lead,
Oh, a praying mantis woman, she bites off her poor man's head,
But a golden egg bug woman makes you wish you was dead.

Had a golden egg bug woman, she treated me so unkind,
Had a golden egg bug woman, she treated me so unkind,
Just asked her to love me, she laid her eggs on my behind.

Oh, those eggs, they sure do weigh you down,
I mean, those eggs, they sure do weigh a body down,
And those ants, they torment you, just keep doggin' you 'round.

Now listen, let me tell you what a golden egg bug woman will do,
Listen, and I'll tell you, what a golden egg bug woman will do,
If you're with another woman, she'll lay eggs on both of you.

I tried to shake 'em, tried to scrape 'em away,
I mean I tried to shake 'em, tried to scrape 'em away.
But those eggs will be with me till my dying day.

Don't trust no golden egg bug woman, she'll only do you wrong.
Don't trust that golden egg bug woman, she is sure to do you wrong,
She'll say that she loves you, just wants to use you all along.
