The Black Widow

This song is by Alice Cooper and appears on the album Welcome To My Nightmare (1975) and on the live album The Alice Cooper Show (1977).

Original video
"Leaving Lepidoptera – please don't touch the displays, little boy; so cute – moving to the next aisle we have arachnida: the spiders, our finest collection. This friendly little devil is the Heptophilidae, unfortunately harmless. Next to him, the nasty Lycosa Raptoria; his tiny fangs cause creeping ulcerations of the skin. And here, my prize, the Black Widow. Isn't she lovely? And so deadly. Her kiss is fifteen times as poisonous as that of the Rattlesnake. You see, her venom is highly neuro-toxtic, which is to say that it attacks the central nervous system - causing intense pain, profuse sweating, difficulty in breathing, loss of consciousness, violent convulsions and finally death. You know, I think what I love the most about her is her inborn need to dominate, possess. In fact, immediately after the consummation of her marriage to the smaller and weaker male of the specie she kills and eats him. Oh, she is delicious, and I hope he was. Such power and dignity unhampered by sentiment. If I may put forward a slice of personal philosophy; I feel that Man has ruled this world as stumbling, demented child-king long enough, and as his empire crumbles my precious Black Widow shall rise as his most fitting successor."

These words he speaks are true
We're all humanary stew
If we don't pledge allegiance to
The Black Widow

The horror that he brings
The horror of his sting
The unholiest of kings
The Black Widow

Our minds will be his toy
And every girl and boy
Will learn to be employed by
The Black Widow

Love me
Yes we love me
Love him
Yes we love him
Love me
Yes we love him

He sits upon his throne
And picks at all the bones
Of his husbands and his wives he's devoured

He stares with a gleam
With a laugh so obscene
At the virgins and the children he's deflowered

Love me
Yes we love me
Love him
Yes we love him
Love me
Yes we love him

Our thoughts are hot and crazed
Our brains are webbed in haze
Of mindless senseless daze
The Black Widow

These things he says are true
We're all humanary stew
If we don't pledge allegiance to
The Black Widow
