The Lyrics

I sawed her again last night;
The crowd gasped, “No, you shouldn’t!”
It’s singing a song, the blade bright,
The box wooden; I’m puttin’
The sharpened edge through; some folks moan, “Euw!”
And I make the steel right through her go,
Yet she’s not grieving.

I separate legs from head
As watchers will discover (“Yech, yech!”).
Yet somehow she is not dead,
Even though there’s two of her.

She’s been cut in two, yet no red hue!
And some folks start feeling like they’ll throw
Up. . .that is, heaving.

Every time I cleave that girl,
It’s magic: she’s been halved but shan’t die.
I use steel to breach that girl—
We’re both givin’ the lie
To the concept of bi[section].

I sawed her again last night;
The deception’s a good ’un
It’s singing a song, the blade bright,
The box wooden; I’m puttin’
The sharpened edge through; it’s an illu-
sion I make the steel right through her go. . .
Not really cleaving.

She’s been cut in two, yet she don’t rue!
And some folks start feeling like they’ll throw
Up. And some are leaving.

Some believe I cleave that girl;
They actually wail, loudly cry,
But they really see that girl
Through a deluded eye—
I’m legerdemain guy.

I sawed her,
I sawed her again last night
But did something I shouldn’t
Have, and it went wrong—what a plight!
Did what I thought I couldn’t:
Legs really severed from head
As I look and discover:
She’s actually dead
Whole I’ll always think of her.

Reminds me of that TV special a few years ago in which a failed illusionist revealed the secrets of a lot of the more popular magic tricks. Most seemed to involve using scantily clad women to distract the audience. There was one time though when I remember seeing a stage performer saw an exposed woman, not in a box, with fake(?) blood flying everywhere. Totally disgusting, and no redeeming illusion or reassembly.

You had me at the title, plus "bi[section}. Great syllable-matching. (Isn't this more fun than "Spell"?) 2.5-2.5-2.5, each half.
