A black widow

Why you sentenced all your husbands to death ?
Why all your husbands are left ?
Cursed widow, you'll stay widow,
And cry till dawn...

Why do you give just a little moment of pleasure ?
Why don't you give a lasting treasure ?
Cursed widow, you'll be alone,
And sing a sad song...

Why do you act outside the laws of love ?
Why all your problem is not solved ?
Cursed widow, you'll commit a crime,
And bury man alive...

Why do you tear man's life apart ?
Why nobody takes your part ?
Cursed widow, you'll get up one morning,
And wear mourning.
