I Hold Your Hand in Mine Songtext

(Introduction, only on live album "Tom Lehrer revisited", spoken:)
One more love song. I generally like to include at least one
Or two love songs in the evening's program, partly perhaps to
Convince people that even at the Harvard University Graduate School,
That hotbed of celibacy that I used to call home, we did have our
Moments. This one is a tender ballad entitled simply
"I Hold Your Hand In Mine".

I hold your hand in mine, dear
I press it to my lips
I take a healthy bite from
Your lovely fingertips


My joy would be complete, dear
If you were only here
But still I keep your hand
As a lovely souvenir

The night you died I cut it off
I really don't know why
For now each time I kiss it
I get bloodstains on my tie

I'm sorry now I killed you
For our love was something fine!
Until they come to get me
I shall hold your hand in mine!
