Lyrics Chorus:
OH DEATH,
OH DEATH,
WON'T YOU SPARE ME
OVER TO ANOTHER YEAR.

verse 1:
OH WHAT IS THIS
THAT I CAN'T SEE
WITH ICE COLD HANDS
TAKING HOLD OF ME?
I AM DEATH
NONE CAN EXCEL,
I HOLD THE KEY
TO HEAVEN OR HELL.

Chorus:
OH DEATH,
OH DEATH,
WON'T YOU SPARE ME
OVER TO ANOTHER YEAR.

verse 2:
I'LL BRIDLE YOUR TONGUE
UNTIL YOU CAN'T TALK,
I'LL STIFFEN YOUR LIMBS
UNTIL YOU CAN'T WALK,
I'LL BLIND YOUR EYES
UNTIL YOU CAN'T SEE,
THIS VERY HOUR
COME GO WITH ME.

Chorus:
OH DEATH,
OH DEATH,
WON'T YOU SPARE ME
OVER TO ANOTHER YEAR.

verse 3:
OH DEATH
HOW YOU'RE TREATING ME,
YOU'RE BLINDING MY EYES
UNTIL I CAN'T SEE,
YOU'RE STIFFENING MY LIMBS,
YOU'RE MAKING ME COLD,
YOU'RE TAKING MY BODY
FROM MY SOUL.

Chorus:
OH DEATH,
OH DEATH,
WON'T YOU SPARE ME
OVER TO ANOTHER YEAR!
