Chivalry Is Dead

by The Pulse



This song was written to attack the idea of chivalry in terms of sexism and inconsistency.Embrace a more modern ideal, and make way for a woman who you can love as an equal.


This is the original

So your armor's kind of dirty,
and I don't need to be saved
Your lines are overused
and they just will not get you laid
Boy, I hate to bear the bad news
about the way you see this
but my cookies are contained
so honey darling, you can beat it
Cause I don't have the faith in
what you give and what I'm taking
(tonight, tonight)

Not that it's wrong for you to pay,
But don't get mad if I offer
If I want to pay your way
It's not like I killed your father
Say you like that I am short
But I think it's 'cause you're taller
if you wanna feel that macho
Then you shouldn't even bother
with me
'Cause I don't have the patience
to be taking what you're giving
I won't say that girls are better
But please get your act together

'Cause chivalry is dead
They're singing "Off with her head!"
So I know I'll have to save myself somehow
'Cause clearly here I am
Sinking down into the sand
And I'm there without a plan but I'll figure it all out
'Cause chivalry's a show
They're singing "Need not to know"
But it doesn't take a genius to see that I am whole
'Cause I don't want to be
The cult of domesticity
Because that little bubble just isn't home to me

Hah. Okay.

[Verse 2]
So I get that you're a guy
But I'm not your sandwich slave
In fact, I have a friend
Who makes sandwiches for me
I don't think that you're the devil
but you really are not nice
So excuse that burst of violence
that my knee gave to your crotch last night
I swear it was a reflex to the garbage you insisted
to try
I won't act like I am godly, but I wont do what you tell me.

They're singing

They're singing
Off with her, Off with her, Off with her head


'Cause chivalry is dead.
