Down in ze cellar
You're getting into making poison
You slipped some on ze side
Into my glass of wine
And I don't want any coffee homeground

Offer me a chocolate
No thank you, spoil my diet, know your game!
But tell me just how come
They smell of bitter almonds?
It's a no-no to your coffee homeground

Pictures of Crippin
Lipstick-smeared
Torn wallpaper
Have the walls got ears here?

Well, you won't get me with your Belladonna in the coffee
And you won't get me with your arsenic in the pot of tea
And you won't get me in a hole to rot with your hemlock
On the rocks

Where are ze plumbers
Who went a-missing here on Monday?
There was a tall man
With his companion
And I bet you gave them coffee homeground

Maybe you're lonely
And only vant a little company
But keep your recipes
For ze rats to eat
And may zey rest in peace with coffee homeground

Well, you won't get me with your Belladonna in the coffee
And you won't get me with your arsenic in the pot of tea
And you won't put me in a six-foot plot with your hemlock
On the rocks

with your hemlock on the rocks
with your hemlock on the rocks

Noch ein Glas, mein Liebchen?
With your hemlock on the rocks
Es schmeckt wunderbahr!
With your hemlock on the rocks
