A Harlot's Call

A Harlotís Call

Life is simple on the corner, a look at passers by.

Viewing through the lattice the young and old are spied.

As the twilight turns to evening; sheís not that discreet.

With craftiness, attire of a harlot, she calls to the street.

Donít these wares look so good, sitting on this window sill?

And donít they call come to me, come and take thy fill.

Indulge yourself for a moment, release thy simple cares.

Turn in for the eve and enjoy my tempting wares.

My bed is covered with fine linen and a tapestry.

Come and delight in thy pleasures, stay and visit with me.

For the man is on a journey and left his goods alone.

At the sign of the full moon heíll return back home.

Oh how quickly that we fall, under Satanís spell.

By sampling, sweet waters stolen from anotherís well.

And oh, the bread eaten in secret has such a pleasant taste.

Yet we forget, the dead are there, awaiting us at Hellís gates.

Hearken unto Godís commandments; write them upon your heart.

Let not the lips of a strange woman beguile you to depart.

Praise the Lord all your days until he brings your rest.

Call upon God to save you and deny her treasures to death.
