Grim Reaper Of Love

Album: It Ain't Me Babe (CD re-issue only) (1966)
Charted: 81
  • Movin' on slowly, sittin' forlornly
    Looks through her window, clouds hide the sun
    She thinks of her love, gone like the wild ones
    She knows he'll never return

    Grim reaper of love, grim reaper of love
    Grim reaper of love, grim reaper of love
    Killing the living & living to kill
    Grim reaper of love thrives on pain; people, beware

    Missed her sadness of the loss of his loaning
    But in his past thinking, love can't last
    We were so happy, peaceful and dear
    But now his life's a little miser

    [Chorus] Writer/s: AL NICHOL, CHARLES PORTZ
