She can't ever have a friend or lover
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
Can't expose emotions under cover
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
She's evil
Might kill you
She's evil
To the end.

Has her way with you for information
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
Works her wiles without infatuation
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
She's ruthless
Don't trust her
She's ruthless
To the end.

It was just a dull assignment
Ascertain the next consignment
She seduced a lowly soldier
And reported what he told her.
Suddenly she could not fight it
Feeling that the boy ignited
Carelessly her heart defected
In the end they were detected.

Banished to Marseilles for restitution
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
Smiling on her day of execution
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
Guess you're outta luck, Carlotta
She's evil
Might kill you
She's evil
To the end.

Notes: This song is obviously an homage to The Residents (my second - look it up) and the storyline is based on a minor character named Carlotta from the 1931 film Mata Hari, which starred Greta Garbo as Ms. Hari. Carlotta was a German agent (Karen Morley), sentenced to death by the big bad (Lewis Stone) for falling in love while on duty. The death sentence is refered to by the code "sent to Marseilles" and, of course, a similar fate awaits Mata in the final reel.
