Sacrificial Lamb

By ManWithHat

The creepiest biblical reference you may ever hear.

Let me buy you a drink
and take you up the hill
The night is still young
and we've got time to kill.
Build a stony altar and
light a cool fire
ignore the thrashing ram
all caught up in the brier

You're my little sacrificial lamb
no angel gonna come and try to stay my hand
the night is clear and starry
but nobody gives a damn
You're my sacrificial lamb

Tie you up and hitch you
to the side of my hip
God may be watching, but
he don't give a rip.
The wine's gone to vinegar
the confetti's blown away.
I'll take you to a higher place
but there's a price to pay.

You're my little sacrificial lamb
no angel's gonna come and stay my hand
No, this ain't the bible
and I'm no Abraham
But you're my sacrificial lamb

I got a little rope,
I got a little coal.
I got a little knife,
so we're all set to roll.
If you want a little magic,
this is the best that I can do.
Just say the magic words,
and the knife will follow through.

You're my little sacrificial lamb
No angel's gonna come and try to stay my hand
No, this ain't the Akedah
and nobody gives a damn that
you're my little sacrificial lamb
