Tom Lehrer – Masochism Tango chords

Em AmI ache for the touch of your lips, dear
D7 GBut much more for the touch of your whips, dear
B7 Em AmYou can raise welts like nobody else
B7 EmAs we dance to the masochism tango
Em AmLet our love be a flame, not an ember
D7 GSay it's me that you want to dismember
B7 Em AmBlacken my eye, set fire to my tie
B7 EmAs we dance to the masochism tango
Am D7 GAt your command before you here I stand
Em AmMy heart is in my hand
Ebdim7 E E7It's here that I must be
Am D7 GMy heart entreats, just hear those savage beats
Em Am D7 G B7And go put on your cleats and come and trample me
Em AmYour heart is hard as stone or mahogany
D7 GWhich is why I'm in such exquisite agony
B7 Em AmMy soul is on fire, it's aflame with desire
B7 EmWhich is why I perspire when we tango
C C7You caught my nose
FIn your left castanet, love
B7I can feel the pain yet, love
EmEv'ry time I hear drums
C C7And I envy the rose
FThat you held in your teeth, love
B7With the thorns underneath, love
Em B7Sticking into your gums
Em AmYour eyes cast a spell that bewitches
D7 GThe last time I needed twenty stitches
B7 Em AmTo sew up the gash that you made with your lash
B7 EmAs we danced to the masochism tango
Am D7 GBash in my brain and make me scream with pain
Em Am Ebdim7 E E7Then kick me once again and say we'll never part
Am D7 GI know too well I'm underneath your spell
Em Am D7 G B7So, Darling, if you smell something burning, it's my heart
Em AmTake your cigarette from its holder
D7 GAnd burn your initials in my shoulder
B7 Em AmFracture my spine and swear that you're mine
B7 EmAs we dance to the masochism tango
