lyrics

Far away from Pakistan lives the old gypsy with the wrinkled hands
She'll lick your lips and lead you down far below this old mining town
She says
Don't you worry my darling dear these sugar pops will sweeten your fear
Shiver me timbers and tiddly pops I'll take you down to taste the gum drops

While underneath she'll hold your breath and point you toward her wedding dress
Put it on and start to dance around the table of broken glass
She sings
Mary my dear don't you falter these fiddlesticks have taken the pauper
And with my screws loose and Uncle Jim the tables will be put together again

It's getting late she's starting to sway might be time to call it a day
She'll lead you home without a sound then lies on her spine upon the ground
She cries
Holy holy night and fingers deep my little pinky has fallen asleep
Death becomes her and Sally too I wish I were as quick as you
