ARTIST: Tom Lehrer
The Masochism Tango

"I ache for the touch of your lips, dear
But much more for the touch of your whips, dear
You can raise welts like nobody else
As we dance to the masochism tango

Let our love be a flame, not an ember
Say it's me that you want to dismember
Blacken my eye, set fire to my tie
As we dance to the masochism tango

At your command before you here I stand
My heart is in my hand - yecch
It's here that I must be
My heart entreats, just hear those savage beats
And go put on your cleats and come and trample me

Your heart is hard as stone or mahogany
That's why I'm in such exquisite agony
My soul is on fire, it's aflame with desire
Which is why I perspire when we tango
You caught my nose
In your left castanet, love
I can feel the pain yet, love
Ev'ry time I hear drums
And I envy the rose
That you held in your teeth, love
With the thorns underneath, love
Sticking into your gums

Your eyes cast a spell that bewitches
The last time I needed twenty stitches
To sew up the gash that you made with your lash
As we danced to the masochism tango
Bash in my brain and make me scream with pain
Then kick me once again and say we'll never part
I know too well I'm underneath your spell
So, Darling, if you smell something burning, it's my heart
Hic! Excuse me
Take your cigarette from its holder
And burn your initials in my shoulder
Fracture my spine and swear that you're mine
As we dance to the maso-chism tango"
