Come away,
Teach me, sweetheart.
Come on past,
Brave young bachelors.
I'm alone,
Teach me, sweetheart.

My mother-in-law was standing by the stove
Hissing like a snake, hissing like a snake,
Hissing like a snake.
She gave orders to spill my blood,
She gave orders
To spill my blood, I thought.

I thought, I thought, and I thought some more.

Come away,
Teach me sweetheart.
Come on past,
Brave young bachelors.
I'm alone,
Teach me, sweetheart.

My father-in-law was lying on his bed
Growling like a dog, growling like a dog,
Growling like a dog.
He gave orders to spill my blood,
He gave orders
To spill my blood, I thought.

I thought, I thought, and I thought some more.

Come away,
Teach me sweetheart.
Come on past,
Brave young bachelors.
I'm alone,
Teach me, sweetheart.

My sister-in-law was sitting on her stoop
Cawing like a crow, cawing like a crow,
Cawing like a crow.
She gave orders to spill my blood,
She gave orders
To spill my blood, I thought.

I thought, I thought, and I thought some more.

Come away,
Teach me sweetheart.
Come on past,
Brave young bachelors.
I'm alone,
Teach me, sweetheart.

My brother-in-law was leaning on the love-seat
Tapping with his tail, tapping with his tail,
Purring like a cat.
He gave orders to spill my blood,
He gave orders
To spill my blood, I thought.
