Play My Darling Play (Katzenjammer)

A messenger arrived through A sunlit' open door Passed the dangers of the world To his troubled queen so bored With a voice full of worry and A frightened fighter's face Another day's morning in life's busy race He looked into her eyes before he spoke Play my darling, play Don't you put yourself on the throne no more Play my darling, play There's a world outside our broken borders Play my darling, play Don't you put your key in another door Play my darling, play With a world outside your broken borders She's a lonely young girl She's the sister of the moon Her heart is like November Though she wants it to be June Larger than life she's standing there so tall There's a note with her name and It's hanging on the wall Her eyes they opened wide when she read (Play my darling, play) She's stuck there on her Island so marooned The limelights got Her blinded and harpooned
