  • Lyrics:

Yes, curtains.

The dead man's bed curtains?

You don't mean to say - that you took them away -
Rings and all with him lying right there?

Yes, I do, and why not? - 'tis no more than his lot
If he wanted some decency now he's deceased,
Then he should have been decent in life

No, I shan't hold my hand - for the sake of that man
If I get silver in it - by holding it out.
