Suburban_elk wrote song lyrics in the traditional mode:
As I was walking out this morning
I spied a lass and fair
with silver bells upon her ankles
and marbles in her hair
Her hair was blonde and silver
and skin a milky white
Muh dick a called a to me
Let’s give this girl a fright!
A fright a fear
A life to lose
A love to loss my dear!
A jingle jangle signal clear
u’neath the stars tonite!
So says I, come hither miss
let’s walk unto the wood
I’ve a present for you fair young lass
will do you milks some good!
Come and follow, trust me now
and tell not your brother where
we’ll have you back ‘fore dinnertime
and fed and groomed aright
A thrill to have
a love to make
what else for us to?
the flowers bloom the birds a flight
a sign for me and you!
And so we went into the wood
returned from there but one
she’d not have known what waited
nor why for love begone

He leaves the musical interpretation up to the performing artist:
As with most real world things, it’s in the execution … The theme featured above, dark as it is, is not an uncommon theme. The idea of getting a girl to go along with you, and then raping and killing her, is something that happens enough that they make songs about it. For instance the American Traditional, Pretty Polly —
I courted pretty Polly, the live long day [x2]
then left her in the morning, before the break of day
uses a simpler chord structure of two minor chords, D-minor and G-minor 7.
The D-minor is a somber sound. The opening line of Rammstein’s great Ohne Dich (Without You) begins with the Dm chord and ends on A-minor: “Ich werde in die Tannen gehen” (I will go into the woods). The Romantic/Gothic story of an abducted object of a madman’s love comes up in Falco’s Jeanny. The late vocalist Johann Hölze had the perfect male speaking voice.
