Why Sleep With Somebody's Wife?


Illegal lust!
Putting on dirty eyes and,
To have sex with somebody's wife;
Why? ! !
This leads to the kiss of death.
Illegal lust,
Why sleep with somebody's wife?
And like the barking of the dogs in th eland of trouble;
Morals! !
With the psychological functions;
And, with the reflections of your error in this land,
As you slept with your neighbour's wife.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
