Because one good spam deserves another...
*G* I had to go and look up the full lyrics after anima_mecanique mentioned Tom Lehrer's "Masochism Tango". Thought you might enjoy it, gayalithiel - *G*. BTW, for you young 'uns, Tom Lehrer is/was a folksinger/songwriter of the '60's who specialized in funny, clever lyrics. Hmmm... maybe I'll spam with some more after this!

The Masochism Tango

I ache for the touch of your lips, dear
but much more for the touch of your whips, dear
You can raise welts
like nobody else
as we dance to the Masochism Tango.

Let our love be a flame, not an ember
Say it's me that you want to dismember
Blacken my eye
Set fire to my tie
as we dance to the Masochism Tango.

At your command
Before you here I stand
My heart is in my hand...
It's here that I must be

My heart entreats
Just hear those savage beats
and go put on your cleats
and come and trample me.

Your heart is hard as stone, or mahogany
That's why I'm in such exquisite agony
My soul is on fire
It's aflame with desire
which is why I perspire when we tango.

You caught my nose
In your left castanet, love
I can feel the pain yet, love
Every time I hear drums

And I envy the rose
that you held in your teeth, love
with the thorns underneath, love
sticking into your gums

Your eyes cast a spell that bewitches
The last time I needed twenty stitches
To sew up the gash
you made with your lash
as we danced to the Masochism Tango

Bash in my brains
and make me scream with pain
then kick me once again
and say we'll never part

I know too well
I'm underneath your spell
so, darling, if you smell
something burning it's my heart
(excuse me)

Take your cigarette from it's holder
and burn your initials in my shoulder
Fracture my spine
and swear that you're mine...

as we dance to the Masochism Tango!

Yay! Tom Lehrer!!

Now, see, I was raised on The Hunting Song, although I did enjoy Masochism Tango sometimes, too. Not to mention Poisoning Pigeons in the Park.

I always want to know what he was DOING while singing/playing The Vatican Rag, though.

...I've been reading too much musicspam lately. Am in a sharing mood. *GRIN*

Re: Yay! Tom Lehrer!!

And then there's "Pollution", and "Plagiarize" ("Don't shade your eyes, plagiarize!"

My favorite has always been The Elements, though everything else is wonderful too.

Oh. My. God.

I mean, first - I'm sure I've heard the song, but I don't remember if I knew it was him!

And, then - a website - squee! And a chance to hear the song!

But... the ANIMATION... is BEAUTIFUL!!!! Thank you! (((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))

I have to remember to share this with all my geeky friends!
