Roses are red So is my blood Pull out your knife my dear And make us a flood My crimson liquid will flow as wine Like the grandest of rivers, deliciously sublime You stab and plunge and stab and stab away Even you my dear have a shiver Lustful revenge for an untold crime There comes a day, when a bill will come due You killed the wrong one you see It should have been you
