Head of the Bearded Man

You look so evil
with your eyes upside down.
The beard from your face
is like a river moving in slow pace.

Your eyes are strange
staring at me like crazy,
you make me dizzy.

Why are you so mad?
Why are you so evil?
Why do you give me this creepy feeling
that makes me start shivering?

There's a weird feeling that comes over me
whenever I look at you.
There are so many questions
whenever I look at you.

Such a pity your head
ended up in a museum;
still you didn't smile.
Why? Why? Why?
