40 Days of Blogging Day 4: Blogger's Choice


Written on the fast of the beheading of St John the Forerunner

To hear the tune, go here: http://badbadboypublications.bandcamp.com/track/dance-salome



Dance, Salome,
Dance while you may
The time is coming when they’ll want your head, too
Dance, Salome,
Give what you’ve got
Ah, you’ve got to dance while the blood is hot, hot ooo
Oooo-ooo-ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo

They’ll tell you you should be your own king
And they’ll tell you to throw off everything
And to dance all night, be a good girl all day
And to follow them and to go your own way
Their own way

You’ve got to
Dance, Salome,
Dance while you may
The time is coming when they’ll want your head, too
Dance, Salome,
Give what you’ve got
Ah, you’ve got to dance while the blood is hot, hot ooo
Oooo-ooo-ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo

They’ll tell you you shouldn’t listen to me
If you’ll be their slave then you can be free
And they’ll tell you you should ask for my head
And you’ll all be happy after I’m dead
They’re all dead

You’ve got to
Dance, Salome,
Dance while you may
The time is coming when they’ll want your head, too
Dance, Salome,
Give what you’ve got
Ah, you’ve got to dance while the blood is hot, hot ooo
Oooo-ooo-ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo

Salome, dance
Don’t look at the crowd
Don’t let your conscience scream out too loud
Dance,
And you can be free
It doesn’t matter what happens to me
You’ve got to
Dance, Salome,
Dance while you may
The time is coming when they’ll want your head, too
Dance, Salome,
Give what you’ve got
Ah, you’ve got to dance while the blood is hot, hot ooo
Oooo-ooo-ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo
Oooo-ooo-ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo

Dance, Salome
Dance while you can
You know no one else will understand
Dance, Salome
Dance just for me
It’s only when you dance that I’m free
That we’re free
Oooo-ooo-ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo
Oooo-ooo-ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo
Oooo-ooo-ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-ooo, Ooo-ooo-ooo
