"Marquis in Spades" is a song from the "Zero" EP by The Smashing Pumpkins, which was included on the The Aeroplane Flies High box set. An early working version was called "Glamey Glamey", while a demo version with different lyrics was known as "Shamay".

Prior to joining the band, drummer Mike Byrne had a YouTube channel under the name "MarquisinSpadez", an obvious reference to this song.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Normal version

["Rolling..." "I was just on another planet for a sec..."
"Run it back, Mole... (amp on) ...fucker..."]

and i'd love you to notice
i'm devoted
to destroy for no one
now it's that time again to take revenge
on all the debutantes and their friends
the bitter charlemagnes so self-absorbed
the bodily remains such a bore

hey, yeah
was i good enough to break you
hey, yeah

and all i see is empty
'cause now i'm one of them
so adored
the slink of impotence
that money can afford
we know who you are and where you live
is your innocence all that you can give

hey, yeah
was i good enough to break you
hey, yeah

in the back of the car
the angel dust was given back to the stars

hey, yeah
was i good enough to break you
hey, yeah

and in this fall from grace
we'll meet again
another time another place
i've been down deep in you and me
let's see where we can go
yeah yeah yeah
angels, barbed wire
fuck you, desire

"Shamay"

what i want concerning what i saw here
better say you're sorry
and it's that time again, take revenge
on all those debutantes and their friends
bitter charlemagnes so adorned
is your innocence, something something [sic]

hey, yeah
was i good enough to break you
hey, yeah

better say you're sorry
now it's time again, take revenge
words are to some extent for lusting
we know who you are and where you live
something, something, yeah [sic]

hey, yeah
was i good enough to break you
hey, yeah

hey, yeah
was i good enough to break you
hey, yeah

and should you fall from grace
sure got a lot to say, yeah
do you love for sin
and no one else, no one else
no one else
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
