Lyrics

Courtship of Spiders

The days end begins as he struts into a bar, hair flowing long in a hurry to get nowhere.
She dances in a blood red dress in a bloodied red walled room, a fetished rose between her teeth thorns dug into perfume.
Singing put the bible down and nobody gets hurt.

Up above me in this bar there sits a churlished long haired woman.
Saying I want to love you with the whole of my eight arms.
May I have the next dance and may I take it at a chance.
This is a blue love a black love a true love.

The olive getting up and down in the martini sea, wet lips pressed up against cold glass playing warm Spanish breeze.
She dances in a blood red dress in a bloody red walled room a fetished rose between her teeth thorns dug into perfume.
That no chile in the town could ever refuse.

His little Seniorita, down at his hacienda.
Hair flowing wild for a winged gentleman contender.
His little Seniorita, down at his hacienda.
Rosa Maria, siesta Maria.

OLE!
