My Heart is Artificial (But My Love for You is Real) - Bob Mellman

    You've been hurt by cheatin' hearts I've been told
    Now you're lookin' for a heart of gold
    You want to find one truer than the rest
    Well my heart is different. you can plainly see
    It's plastic and it's powered by a battery
    And it's beating for you right outside of my chest

    My heart is artificial, but my love for you is real
    My heart is artificial, but my love for you is real

    I'm a marvel of the modern medicine
    I'm just the fourth or fifth person that the heart has been in
    A guinea pig establishing a trend
    So please treat me gentle, don't you break my heart
    It's not easy to fix (It takes a week for the part)
    And Crazy Glue won't help to make it mend

    [Repeat Chorus]

    Now I can't walk to the ends of the earth just to tell you I love you
    And you don't make the blood rush through my veins But you help

    So I'm gonna wait a while to have sex in heaven
    'Cause I'm wired up to my Jarvik 7
    I'll stay in circulation for a while
    And I'll give you my heart If you will be my babe
    (It's soaking in a jar filled with formaldehyde) And if my brand new pump don't falter
    I'll go to the altar with you

    [Repeat Chorus]
