Oh my Absalom! Would you see what you have done to me?
When I held you as a child you were all my wild eyes could see
Your face was beautiful and your hair was something to behold
(like silken gold)
You stole your nation's heart
Stole the heart that once belonged to me
To the king

Well, they found you
With your head stuck in the boughs of a mighty oak tree
Between the heavens and the earth
Your body dangling
Like an apple on a branch about to fall

When he stole your sister's secret
She poured ashes on her head and tore her clothes
So you took my battle sword, blessed the Lord
And ran that son of a bitch right through
Then you built an army of crazy men
Chariots and arms in your command, in the palm of your hand
You sent the scouts and got those pigs on the march
And they came chasing after me
After their king

When they found your body hanging there
These ten young guys—they cut you down
Threw your corpse in a deep, deep pit
Buried my heart along with it
