The Lyrics

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Putting my parts in a dish
Killing me softly with his tongs
Killing me softly with his tongs
Taking my life was Mom’s big wish
Killing me softly with his tongs

Mom heard they sold a good line
She heard they had a style
And so she came to see them
To listen for a while
And there I was cut up
A stranger to their eyes

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Putting my parts in a dish
Killing me softly with his tongs
Killing me softly with his tongs
Taking my life was Mom’s big wish
Killing me softly with his tongs

I felt all flushed with fever
I felt like I was dying
I felt he found my organs
And snipped and I stopped crying
I prayed that he would finish
But he just kept right on

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Putting my parts in a dish
Killing me softly with his tongs
Killing me softly with his tongs
Taking my life was Mom’s big wish
Killing me softly with his tongs

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Putting my parts in a dish
Killing me softly with his tongs
Killing me softly with his tongs
Taking my life was Mom’s big wish
Killing me softly with his tongs

Strumming my pain with his fingers
Putting my parts in a dish
Killing me softly with his tongs
Killing me softly with his tongs
Taking my life was Mom’s big wish
Killing me softly with his tongs

Great title sub- 555!

The late, great Tommy Turtle and I disagreed on this issue. I recall being on a local TV interview show many years ago and was asked what I thought about abortion. I said I sided with the fetus, after all, I used to be one. The gentle tone of the original song adds to the horror of the acts being described. A well-thought out parody.
