Madame Guillotine Lyrics

Broadway 1997
Scarlet Pimpernel the Musical - Madame Guillotine Lyrics

MOB: MEN:
I know the gutter and I know the stink of the street!
Kicked like a dog, I have spat out the bile of defeat!
All you beauties who towered above me
You who gave me the smack of your rod!

MOB:
Now I give you the gutter!
I give you the judgement of God!

MOB: WOMEN:
Vengeance victorious! These are the glorious days!

WOMAN OF MOB:
Women of Paris come gather your bloody bouquets!

MOB:
Now gaze on our goddess of justice
With her shimmering glimmering blade!
As she kisses these traitors
She sings them a last serenade!

Sing! Swing ! Savor the sting!
As she severs you - Madame Guillotine!
Slice! Come, Paradise!
You'll be smitten with Madame Guillotine!

MAN OF MOB:
The world may be ugly
But each man must do what he must!

WOMAN OF MOB:
Give in, pretty dear!
In a year you will be pretty dust!

MOB:
Now come let out lady possess you!
In her breathtaking, hair-raising bed!
She will tingle your spine
As she captures your heart and your head!

Sing! Swing! Savor the sting!
As she severs you - Madame Guillotine!
Slice! Come, Paradise!
Our Delilah will shave you razor clean!

MARQUIS DE ST. CYR:
God, when did man lose his reason?
Save us, my God, if you're there!
God, can you not feel the terror
Like a fire in the air?

MOB:
Flash! Slash! Glisten and gash!
She will ravish you - Madame Guillotine!
Slit! Madame just bit!
Give her more to bite! She's a hungry queen!

Sing! Savor the sting!
As she severs you - Madame Guillotine!
Slice! Come, Paradise!
Hail, Her Majesty!
Madame Guillotine!
