Lyrics:

Honey it^Òs getting close to midnight
and all the myths are still in town
True love and lipstick on your linen
Bite the pillow make no sound
If there^Òs some living to be done
Before your life becomes your tomb
You^Òd better know I^Òm the one
So unchain the backdoor invite me door

Chorus:
Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go

Honey it^Òs getting close to daybreak
The sun is creeping in the sky
No patent remedies for heartache
Just empty words and humble pie
So get down on your knees honey
Assume an attitude
You just pray that I^Òll be waiting
Cos you know I^Òm coming soon

Chorus

So pick up your foolish pride, no going back
No where, no way, no place to hide

Bring your daughter,
fetch your daughter to the slaughter.

Chorus
