This is the ballad of M. Maurice
A once good standing man, but it went bad
And now he’s lonesome

He had a wonderful wife
Golden sunshine always smiling to the world
But she didn’t love him anymore 2x

She couldn’t tell the truths to his eyes
Spread rumors and started telling lies
Destroyed the reputation of M. Maurice
M. Maurice - upset at this man and his malicious practices
“M. Maurice always beats his wife”
“Protect you children from M. Maurice’s desire”

She wakes up in the middle of the night
Howling hellcat with her demon eyes
Like a snake in the grass
Her facial contortions make her look bad
When she tells to the world
That it’s he, M. Maurice, M. Maurice, M. Maurice

This is the ballad of M. Maurice
Exiled from his friends and his family
Wandering the dusty backstreet of Paris
No one would ever listen to his side of the story
