Ivanova's Lament

Words/Music © by Deborah Baudoin

They lie and they cheat, they're possessive and cloying!
To them this is just one big game!
I have fifteen things to do, all of them annoying!
So say your peace I beg you please before I go insane!

Boom-boom Boom-boom

Centauri hate Narns, Minbari hate Humans,
Earthforcers hate all creatures great and small!
Psi-Cops hate rogues, and there have been rumors
In future shows the Shadows know and hate us one and all!

They lie and they cheat, they're possessive and cloying!
To them this is just one big game!
I have fifteen things to do, all of them annoying!
So say your peace I beg you please before I go insane!

Boom-boom Boom-boom

Ambassador Kosh speaks only in riddles
I can't understand him to save my life!
With Londo and G'kar, I'm stuck in the middle--
The way the fight both day and night you'd think they're man and wife!

They lie and they cheat, they're possessive and cloying!
To them this is just one big game!
I have fifteen things to do, all of them annoying!
So say your peace I beg you please before I go insane!

Boom-boom Boom-boom Boom-boom

Delenn was part of the Gray Council
'Till she built a cocoon that changed her soul...
Now the lady is part human...
And we can lie and cheat with the best of them!

They lie and they cheat, they're possessive and cloying!
To them this is just one big game!
I have fifteen things to do, all of them annoying!
So say your peace I beg you please before I go insane!
