Renewal 2022: by Lou Marshall Gould and Peter Moring


Rebel Princess (The Ballad of Sidney Blaine)

This is the story of Sidney Blaine
a revolutionary princess who earned her saucy name
She makes sense to me
but not to her enemies

They tried to tame her
they tried to shame her
they even tried to blame her
for downturns in the US economy

She's a rebel princess
and she's got a license to thrill
and a body that kills
its victims s l o w l y

Revolutionary, evolutionary
contemporary chic
ramifications subjugation
installations of the mind
playin' hide and seek
take a peek inside
what does she really hide?

They say history is a mystery
for warriors and saints
drivin' a jeep and sportin'
a mohawk with feminine war paint

She says she wants you
-and you only-
only she has a hard time
in makin' up her mind
on which road to go
which ground to hoe
that will yield what you want to grow

She takes no prisoners
at least not for more than a little while
It's just not her style
she can sift through the lies
and the alibies
in LA she's called the Bermuda Triangle

Sidney's got a shark tooth necklace
hangin' round her neck
Yes, loves to wear bangles
and says she wants the revolution
to come soon to her neighborhood
But I think she'd prefer
restitution in the form of
Robin and her Hoods -

That's her garage band also known as
Blood and Sand and is at her command
on some occasions and in some quarters
that is

Likes to reminisce at the microphone about her sisters
in The Cause and when she takes the
stage she prefers raised fists to
adulating applause -
and camouflage to silky satin
her choice in men turns to Latin Romeos
who know how to reap what they sow

Her lips send kisses that are like champagne
but beer is the changer of her game
and she's no stranger to barroom brawls
or takin' radical telephone calls in dingy backroom halls

She gives the cops a chill
and they need to take a pill
to calm their shaky nerves
while they 'protect and serve'
the community

Los Angeles is like that I guess

The executioner of the soul
is ready to pay the toll
and enter into a bargain with the
theater of the absurd and the weary
I am told

She's a rebel princess
and she's got a license to thrill
and a body that kills
her victims s l o w l y

Revolutionary, evolutionary
contemporary chic
ramifications subjugation
installations of the mind
playin' hide and seek
take a peek inside
what does she hide?

Yeah, This is the story of Sidney Blaine
a revolutionary princess who earned her saucy name
She makes sense to me
but not to her enemies

She takes no prisoners
servin' the revolution

Servin' the revolution
to the end...
