SHAKESPEARE IS A FRIEND OF MINE lyrics 

by Joel Sattler

 

Shakespeare is a friend of mine 

Shakespeare is my pal 

once a year we meet and greet 

at the feast of Lupercal 

 

drink my blood and he drinks mine 

pretending that it's merely wine 

and speak of visions once divine 

Shakespeare is a friend of mine 

 

Shakespeare is a friend of mine 

Caesar our chauffeur 

driving down the Roman roads 

pretending we are saboteurs  

 

blowing up all history 

Henry in his misery 

Falstaff paying for his crimes 

Shakespeare is a friend of mine 

 

once I thought it was a dream 

couldn't be what it had seemed 

memory plays tricks a lot 

just be happy what you got 

 

I realized a gift of God 

spoil the child and spare the rod 

singing every single line 

Shakespeare is a friend of mine 

 

Hamlet has to have a ghost 

raise our glasses in a toast 

William is the Conquerer 

has to have it the last word 

 

Lupercalia is fun 

take the women on the run 

don't look twice or look behind 

Shakespeare is a friend of mine 

 

and when you think the play is through 

and all the curtain falls on you  

leave while the audience applauding 

while outside armies are marauding 

 

tell yourself that you are safe 

innocent as a waif 

tell yourself this simple rhyme: 

Shakespeare is a friend of mine 

 

Tickets please?
