I hold your hand in mine

Muziek: Rolf Kramer, april 2005

Tekst: Tom Lehrer, 1953
Lied 9


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 donít know why

For now each time I kiss it

I get bloodstains on my tie


Iím sorry now I killed you

for our love was something fine

and Ďtil they come to get me

I shall hold your hand in mine
