When death rings the warning bell, hold to life, hold to life.

When death rings the warning bell, hold to life, hold to life.

If death comes peering through the window, close the curtains.

If death comes peering through the window, close the curtains.

When death comes peering through the window, close the curtains, hold to life.

If death rings the warning bell, hold to life.


Should death lie and sleep beside you, turn away.

Should death lie and sleep beside you, turn away.

If death’s hand caresses your cheek, slap it off.

If death’s hand caresses your cheek, slap it off.

Should death lie beside you, hand caresses your cheek;

If death’s sleep, slap it off and turn away.


When death holds you close, spit in his face.

When death holds you close, spit in his face.

Should death kiss your lips, resist his tongue.

Should death kiss your lips, resist his tongue.

When death holds you close, resist his kiss.

Should death tongue your lips, spit in his face.


When death comes peering through the window, hold to life.

If death holds you close, resist his caresses,

Close the curtains, and turn your cheek away.

Should death sleep beside you, spit in his face.

Should death tongue-kiss your lips, slap it off.

Hold to life, if/when death rings the warning bell.
