In 1987
A band called Heart
Released a power ballad
That topped the charts
The song's called "Alone"
And the music is fine
But really it's those lyrics
That are truly sublime
So I decided I would make an endeavor
And memorize the words
So I'd know them forever
On my own steam
With nobody's help
This was something I needed to do for myself
So I holed up in my room and went hermit
Tried till I cried
Determined to learn it
And then one day
I came out of my cell
I was thin with a really long beard
And I smelled
But God, I had done it:
I learned every part
Of "Alone," by Heart,
alone, by heart.

Till now!
I always got by on my own!
I never really cared until I met you!
(I know the whole fucking thing, I'll keep going!)
And now it chills me to the bone!
"Alone," by Heart,
Alone, by heart.
I learned it alone.
I learned it

By heart.
