Lyrics

I first saw her, down by square
she was dancing upon thin air
I gave to her the only thing I had left
It was the cross that hung ‘round my neck

she danced with me a dance of death
I laughed out loud and just held my breath
her moves were quick and well calculated
it was nothing that I hadn’t anticipated

she followed me home to my desperate flat
dancing around like the cat-in-a-hat
she sang to me all night long;
“you seem so shy but I’ll play along”

I last saw her, down by the square
she was dancing upon thin air
she gave to me the only thing she had left
It was the cross that hung ‘round her neck
