La Petite Mort (McKeown Erin)

Estelle I was your husband Third in a group of three You twice the widowed And I once did see A wedding bed like no other For it's turned to a funeral grave Truth is temperance, happiness warns Signposts on the road that is paved When the decent folks dance a two step revival Denial and deviation, temptation and trial Estelle oh Estelle what you loved you gave away Jesus says we die a little death for him everyday Dot turned tricks with the spoons Played piano with the other hand You the kid who liked life so much Look up,it's your wedding band The minister spoke, the vows we took At that moment you were mine A falling took place afterward An explanation would take more time When the decent folks dance a two step revival Denial and deviation, temptation and trial Estelle oh Estelle what you loved you gave away Jesus says we die a little death for him everyday Estelle I took you home that night My wife above the common law Laid it up like we always do In the hammock of our backyard Swinging like a rocking horse Cannon balling down a track We both found heaven right then You just chose not to come back When the decent folks dance a two step revival Denial and deviation, temptation and trial Estelle oh Estelle what you loved you gave away Jesus says we die a little death for him everyday
