Each man kills the thing he loves

Each man kills the thing he loves

 

Some do it with a bitter look

some with a flattering word

The coward does it with a kiss

the brave man with a sword, with a sword

 

Each man kills the thing he loves

Each man kills the thing he loves

 

Some kill their love when they are young

and some when they are old

Some strangle with the hands of lust

some with the hands of gold

The kindest use a knife because the dead so soon grow cold.

 

Each man kills the thing he loves

Each man kills the thing he loves

 

Some love too little

some too long

some buy and other sell

Some do the deed with many tears

and some without a sigh

For each man kills the thing he loves, yet each man does not die

 

Each man kills the thing he loves

Each man kills the thing he loves
