The Black Widow

“They call me a black widow

But I really don’t know why

I have no web to spin

On this you can always rely

I’m not somewhere just waiting

For my latest of prey

I won’t take your life

In any shape or way

Come on in to look

And for own self see

‘Cause I am as innocent

As anyone could ever be

No need to be afraid

Get to know me first

Sit down and have a drink

And we’ll satisfy our thirst”

Now my children you must beware

A black widow waits for you

To steal your soul away is

All that she wants to do

Just don’t play with her

And run the other way

Before you can be caught

In her web to stay!
