from “Four Indian Love Lyrics”

“Any Parodied Representation Of This Composition Is Strictly Prohibited” [from the cover]

Pale hands I loved beside the Shalimar [Gardens],
Where are you now? Who lies beneath your spell?
Whom do you lead on Rapture’s roadway, far,
Before you agonise them in farewell?

Pale hands I loved beside the Shalimar,
Where are you now? Where are you now?

Pale hands, pink-tipped, like Lotus buds that float
On those cool waters where we used to dwell,
I would have rather felt you round my throat,
Crushing out life, than waving me farewell!

Pale hands I loved beside the Shalimar,
Where are you now, where are you now?
