about

written by Tom Lehrer

lyrics

I hold your hand in mine dear
I press it to my lips
I take a healthy bite from your dainty fingertips

My joy would be complete dear
if you were only here
But still I keep your hand as a precious souvenir

The night you died I cut it off
I really don't know why
For now each time I kiss it
I get blood stains on my tie

I'm sorry now I killed you
For our love was something fine
Until they come to get me,
I shall hold your hand in mine
