Lyrics: Maiden’s Lamentation

I was hoping to record this piece during the weekend, but took ill and have basically lost my voice. In the meantime, here are the lyrics. The song is about a woman forced into an unwanted marriage and exacts her revenge by giving her desirous husband an STI. Enjoy.

Maiden’s Lamentation

V1
And to mine heir
Misfortunes I’ve bred
Self cleft in two
The maiden has wed

Shall ere be laid
The plaintiff to rest
A poxy red rube
In her candlebox breast

Chorus
The buyer will sell
When push comes to shove
Her body her fate
As below so above

The buyer will sell
When push comes to shove
Pay heed to the pander
A harlot to –

V2
Affixed to the shent
Accursed the crux
Fortuna abreast
The maiden cast afflux

A penitent pence
For your rusty Damocles
Debits the head
Venereal thieves

Chorus
The buyer will sell
When push comes to shove
Her body her fate
As below so above

The buyer will sell
When push comes to shove
Pay heed to the pander
A harlot to –

Bridge
– LOVE…
Porcelain dolls
On Walpurgisnacht
Would eat you alive
So it goes so they say
Pretty girl x9
Pretty girls rule the world
