The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
To the tune of "Some Enchanted Evening"

Some demented evening
We'll all call on Gatsby.
We'll cavort with Gatsby
Until the dawn is nigh.
And somehow we know
We know even then
That we shall desert him
at his bitter end.

Some demented evening
We may witness madness.
We will follow madness
Wherever it may roam.
And night after night
Perverse as it seems
We will long for madness
In our fondest dreams.

Who can explain it?
Who can tell you why?
Fools can give you reasons.
Wise men never try.

Some demented evening
When you find your weakness
When you feel it lure you
Toward a certain doom.
Then run like the wind
Come shelter with me
Or all through your life
You will never be free.

Once you have broken
It can't be undone.
Once you are broken
It won't be undone.
