Lyrics

DANSE MACABRE new words by Joel Sattler

Based on a translation of the original poem by Henri Cazalis

 

Ziggy zaggy zig, Mr. Death is dancing

In a happy jig with a toothy grin

Hopping on the graves, tapping on the tombs

In the mid of night to a violin

 

The wind blows cold, and the winter's nigh

The trees are all groaning under the sky

The music plays, the skeletons fly

The ghosts in their coffins are glad they died

 

Ziggy zaggy zig, all the bones will shake

Clicky clicky clack such a horrid sound

And two corpses kiss with forgotten lips

Mockery of love - lying on the ground

 

Ziggy ziggy Zag, Mr. Death is fiddling

All the dead will jump to his violin

Now the shrouds are ripped and the bones are naked

Imitation of - memory of sin

 

Ziggy zaggy zig, what a bacchanalia

Look at all the damned, dancing in a ring

Such an awful sight is beyond all horror

Terrible the sound if they try to sing!

 

But wait! The day's come round at last

The cock's now crowing, the sky is so red

Oh such awful night, what an awful fright - so

Be glad that we die - all equally dead!
