And I snatched her away from the jaws of the world
But I drank up her oceans and dried up her pearls
I acted apprehensibly
I acted like she was sent here for me

We go into the water
And under the water
And a wretched man gave his lovely daughter
From a life of decency
To half a theif like me

And I would saw off my limbs for a little bit more
I would trust you, but trust is such a dirty word
I would saw of my limbs for a little bit more
I would love you, but love is like a dirty whore

And I snatched her away from the jaws of the world
But I drank up her diamonds and dried up her pearls
I acted reprehensibly
I acted like she was made for me

We go into the water
And under the water
And baptized with the neighbor's daughter
From a life of decency
She saved a wretch like me

And I would saw off my limbs for a little bit more
I would trust you, but trust is such a dirty word
I would saw of my limbs for a little bit more
I would love you, but love is like a dirty whore
