OH DESDEMONA

OH DESDEMONA
You’re Going to Lose Your Sheik

I have always led a sweet and peaceful life
Till Desdemona made herself my wife
But trouble has been seekin’ me
She turned me out then turned the key.
I’m sighin’ for the gal behind that door

CHORUS:
Oh Desdemona, your Henry’s pleadin’
Your love I’m needin’
And I need it now
Out here the rain is fallin’
Can’t you hear me callin’
Desdemona where art thou
I’ve been hangin’ ’round that old mill creek
Angels callin’ me but I’m so weak
My heart is achin’ and there’s no mistakin’
Desdemona you’re takin’ a chance of losin’ your sheik.

Desdemona has your heart turned into stone
Can’t you hear those angry night winds moan
Oh Desdemona this is misery
Sweet, be yourself and thrown down that key.
I’m in despair – why give me so much air

Oh Desdemona, your Henry’s pleadin’
Your love I’m needin’
And I need it now
Out here the rain is fallin’
Can’t you hear me callin’
Desdemona where art thou
Food for thought is what the wise men seek
But it’s thought of food whereof I speak
I’ve been forsaken by my ham and bacon
Desdemona you’re takin’
A chance of losin’ your sheik

OH DESDEMONA
