Sammy is the Guy Who'll Fight Them

[Sing to the tune: Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by The Beatles]

Picture yourself in a town by a river
With monstrous scenes and dark scary skies

Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A man with kaleidoscope eyes

Such big scary ghosts that you can’t even scream
Towering over your head
Look for the man with the sun in his eyes
And your done

Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Aaaaahhhhh…

Follow him down to a bridge by a fountain
Where rugaru people eat men with bad ties
Everyone screams as Sam lights up the monsters
The flames grow incredibly high

Dean in his Baby appears on the road
Waiting to take you away
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds
And you’re gone

Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Aaaaahhhhh…

Picture yourself on a train in a subway
There’s someone with fangs looking you in the eyes
Suddenly someone is there right behind him
The man with kaleidoscope eyes

Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Aaaaahhhhh…
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Aaaaahhhhh…
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them
Sammy is the guy who’ll fight them [fade out]

1. See how he is around his mother. She’s the number one woman in his life. She has raised him, lived with him, seen him at his best and loved him at his worst. She is the reflection of who you are about to be. If he can look her in the eyes and deceive her, if he can ignore her calls and urgent texts, if he can go more than two weeks without checking how she is, let him go.

2. Get him angry. If a little scrap on the PlayStation or a dispute over a bad look from a guy on the train makes him spit poison and fire at you then let him go. If his eyes don’t dull and his skin doesn’t pale, if his hands don’t ache and his throat doesn’t burn after he’s yelled at you then let him go.

3. Get him drunk. If he’s forceful, truthful, or violent as a drunk, let him go. Alcohol does not change who you are, it strips away your ability to hide it. If he is roaring names and angry abuse at you whilst intoxicated and apologising with love and regret the next day, let him go. He cannot be the bullet in your chest and the bandage that covers it. If he hurts you too deep, let him go.

4. Get him around his friends. Get him questioned. Get him asked ‘where did you two meet?’ ‘How long have you been together?’ And see how he reacts. If he only touches you when you’re alone, let him go. If his hand clams up when his friends are around and you go from baby girl to yeah, her, then let him go.

5. Get him around your friends. They will see the flaws in him before you ever do. If your college friend tells you the way he looks at her made her uncomfortable, if your school friend tells you he’s shifty, if your best friend tells you he’s a creep, let him go. They will see the bad in him before you ever do, and when in three months time you’re crying in their laps over something he’s said or done, you’ll come out of it looking weak. Let him go.

6. Get him sad. Ask him about his ex, ask him about when his grandma died, ask about his childhood. See how much his eyes dull as he talks about being bullied in sophomore year. Watch how badly his hands shake as he talks about his first heartbreak. His sadness becomes yours when you become serious. If after one late night conversation you’re already cutting yourself on his broken glass, let him go.

7. And finally get him loving. Get him where you picture yourself being married one day. Get him by the river at midnight. Get him under the moonlight. Laugh and dance and play around with him. If his eyes shine any duller than the stars as he watches you, let him go.
