Blossom Dearie - To Keep My Love Alive

rate me


I've been married and married,

And often I've sighed,

I'm never a bridesmaid,

I'm always the bride.

I never divorced them-

I hadn't the heart.

Yet remember these sweet words

"Till death do us part."


I married many men,

A ton of them,

Because I was untrue to none of them

Because I bumped off ev'ry one of them

To keep my love alive

Sir Paul was a frail;

He looked a wreck to me.

At night he was a horse's neck to me

So I performed an appendectomy

To keep my love alive.

Sir Thomas had insomnia

He couldn't sleep at night.

I bought a little arsenic

He's sleeping now all right.

Sir Philip played the harp;

I cussed the thing.

I crowned with his harp

To bust the thing.

And now he plays where harps are

Just the thing,

To keep my love alive,

To keep my love alive.


I thought Sir George had possibilities,

But his flirtations made me I'll at ease,

And when I'm I'll at ease

I kill at ease

To keep my love alive.

Sir Charles came from a sanatorium

And yelled for drinks in my emporium

I mixed one drink

He's in memorium

To keep my love alive.

Sir Francis was a singing bird

A nightingale. That's why

I tossed him off my balcony

To see if he could fly

Sir Athelstane indulged in fratricide;

He killed his dad and that was patricide

One night I stabbed him at my mattress side

To keep my love alive,

To keep my love alive.
