Dinner Or Death

Grimm Tales Cover

Lyrics

And the lucky prince arrived exactly one hundred years after the princess first began to repay the sins of her parents. He kissed her lips and she awoke.
(he kissed her lips, kissed, kissed her lips and she awoke)

The king and queen cried ‘oh if only we had a child’
But they didn’t get one until
A frog climbed from the bath and then crawled onto the ground
And said ‘before a year you’ll have one’ and then

The king threw a celebration, invited the wise women to bless his child
But it was too much of a hassle to have every single one so he left one out

Actions have their consequences, play with fire, burn to death
Play with me, I’ll let you live in hell, live in hell
On her fifteenth year, the young princess, will be pricked by a spindle, fall down dead
‘Til then you can feed your guilt and live in hell, live in hell

You should’ve brought a chair, should’ve brought a chair
You were asking for revenge, asking for revenge
It was dinner or death, dinner or death
You know you had a choice and I had a choice
You thought I’d take the blow and not raise my voice
It was dinner or death, dinner or death

The sentence was reduced to a hundred years sleep by the final wise woman
The king tried save his child, burn every spindle, but again, he missed one

Left all alone on her fifteenth birthday, she climbed up a tower
Found an old woman spinning, tried to take the wheel, but was pricked and fell down

Actions have their consequences, sinners have to pay their debts
You wrong me and I’ll let you live in hell, live in hell
An entire castle buried deep, a hundred years, sound asleep
Dream in nightmares and live in hell, live in hell

You should’ve brought a chair, should’ve brought a chair
You were asking for revenge, asking for revenge
It was dinner or death, dinner or death
You know you had a choice and I had a choice
You thought I’d take the blow and not raise my voice
It was dinner or death, dinner or death

Little Brier-Rose so pretty pretty lying there
All the princes come but are caught in the thorn hedge
Stuck and starved, ’til they’re dying with a broken heart
Only over when a hundred years has passed
Little Brier-Rose so pretty pretty lying there
All the princes come but are caught in the thorn hedge
Stuck and starved, ’til they’re dying with a broken heart
If you piss me off I’ll tear your damn world apart

You should’ve brought a chair, should’ve brought a chair
You were asking for revenge, asking for revenge
It was dinner or death, dinner or death
You know you had a choice and I had a choice
You thought I’d take the blow and not raise my voice
It was dinner or death, dinner or death
It was dinner or death
It was dinner or death
It was dinner or death
It was dinner or death
It was dinner or death

My tale is done, a mouse has run and whoever catches it can make for himself from it a large fur cap.
