She danced, she danced to sooth a Kings lust;
A beloved daughter, of a skill so robust;
She danced, she danced to a Kings delight;
A beloved daughter, so limber so light;
She danced, she danced to pierce a Kings heart;
A beloved daughter, this gift was her dart;

Oh Salome, Salome;
You wagered for the head of a holy man;
Oh Salome, Salome;
With such sadness your story began;

John the baptizer,he lost his head;
His disciples then, to mourn him dead.
