Oh, temple darling
You have made my life so neat
But a dirty old death
Still waits in the bridle suite

And oh, oh, I can't see around that bend
Whoa, oh, in the end they put my head in a box
And then they give me the wire

They're gonna give me the wire
They're gonna give me the wire
They're gonna give me the wire

Oh, temple dear
I don't mean to be a thankless boor
Ah, but as bad as its been
I think I'd still rather have taken more

So, oh, as you've eased my way, my friend
Whoa, oh, won't you watch them put my head in a box
And watch them give me the wire?
Watch them give me the wire

So, oh, as you've eased my way my friend
Whoa, oh, won't you watch them put my head in a box
And watch them give me the wire?

Watch them give me the wire
They're gonna give me the wire
They're gonna give me the wire
