Thought I'd share.

ONE LAST COLD KISS by Gail Collins & Felix Papalardi


Two island swans mated for life
and his faithful heart would not consider any other wife
for three years peaceful joy midst the rushes on the pond
Proud and gentle was the loving of the last two island swans

Their love was like a circle, no beginning and no end
with his lady by his side a treasure and his friend
and the pond was oh so peaceful with the rising of the sun
Young and free, like the island's breeze, their life was just begun

'Til a dread day in November when the sear cold did start
Stalks the hunter with his bow, he put an arrow through her heart
Oh husband come to my side let your feathers warm my pain
for I fear I will not spend another day with you again.

and the cold winds blow
he was brave but he's laid low
by her body in the isle of mist
I saw him give her one last cold kiss
one last cold kiss

Of swans the people talk of only one in this days tide,
brought him twenty ladies he would take no other bride
They say he will not move from the place where she did fall
Once so proud he's beaten now he will not speak at all.

and the cold wind does blow
he was brave but he's laid low
by the body in the isle of mist
I saw him give her one last cold kiss
one last cold kiss

Cheers
Gary
