Sister Sara

(Alice Cooper, Bob Marlette)

Now I don't know but I've been told
There's a nun having fun and she lost her soul
She's got cash, she got laid
Now she's dealin' with me and she gonna get paid
She got caught with the bishop
She got caught with the abbot
Even cardinal sin tried to feed her habit
Now we get whores and pimps and skanks
But when your judgement came down even he gave thanks

Whatever happened to me
Can't remember my name
Flying so high on angelic wings
Flew too close to the flame

Sister Sara
It's your penalty for eternity
(for eternity)
Did you think that you were saved
(for eternity)
You forget your old identity who you used to be
(for eter... sara)
Sister Sara
So depraved

Oh, come O ye faithless, get in line
You're gonna drown in the water, turned to wine
And you're all going to wallow in your sin and shame
You had every opportunity to call His name
Don't look surprised, don't be in shock
You'll be a lovely little demon in my private stock
I'm just doing my job to pull you down
'Cause it's a one way ticket down to Dragontown

(Whatever happened to me)
You got caught in my web
(Can't remember my name)
You made your own bed here
(Flying so high on angelic wings)
And now you must keep me well fed
(Flew too close to the flame)
You're mine, too bad,
You're here for me, you're just here for me

Sister Sara
It's your penalty for eternity
(for eternity)
Did you think that you were saved
(for eternity)
You forget your old identity who you used to be
(for eter... sara)
Sister Sara
So depraved

Moment to moment, hour to hour, for ever and ever
Time after time after time after time after time

(for eternity)
Sister Sara
It's your penalty for eternity
(for eternity)
Did you think that you were saved
(for eternity)
You forget your old identity who you used to be
(for eter... sara)
Sister Sara
So depraved

Song Information

"Well, 'Sister Sara' is a bit like Nurse Rozetta from '78's 'From The Inside'. She took her vows and totally blows it, she just could not live up to what she was supposed to be and she became the total opposite, but still frail and very mortal. She gets introduced to `The Triggerman' and the 'Fantasy Man' (a sort of U.S. chat show dream of a character in the song of the same name) and also 'The Sentinel' who is one of these guys that fancies himself as judge, jury and executioner and soon realises she is in good company." (Get Rhythm, November 2001)
