The Lyrics
She was down and confused
And sometimes her menses would really ooze.
So Tom had her put away;
That’s where she stayed until her last day.

He didn’t show, though he’s gifted, love.
Eventually, he’s rid of
Viv; let’s face it: he just wasn’t sweet and sunny. . .
Loveless Tom and Viv.

He got angry—what a cad!
So his idea to marry her was bad.
’cause this girl was loose a screw.
If there were mating’s, they must have been few.

He didn’t show her the gift of love;
Eventually, he’s rid of
Her; let’s face it: her he treated kinda crummy. . .
Loveless Tom and Viv.

His annoyance unalloyed;
He got his girl nuthouse-deployed.
Free of the fetters, he’s still not nice.
The guy doesn’t bleed—he’s got veins of ice.

He didn’t show her the gift of love;
Eventually, he’s rid of
Her; let’s face it: he wasn’t crack-up funny.
Loveless Tom and Viv

In researching, I find these are two William Dafoe films...unfortunately, I never saw either, but you make them sound interesting.
