The Lyrics

Before you flip into the dark abyss,
It's my turn to give you the kiss-
off, and as it is said, "Take this
You get a kiss-off, that type kiss.

Not holding tight? Oh, what a shame!
Your holdings will be in my name.
I'll play a little legal game--
Me they won't blame. I'll play dumb dame.

You told me where your weal you hide;
I'll steal it, shlemiel, when you've died.
Deliriously I'll reap; that's right:
MY fists are tight; have a nice flight.

The grip will slip, and then you will
Go down until that mounded hill
Will still your brays at your end time.
The rope's gone slack--I chopped the line.
