> Sophie, mein Henkersmaedel
> Komm, kuesse mir den Schaedel.
> Zwar ist mein Mund
> ein schwarzer Schlund,
> doch Du bist gut und edel.

"Sophie, my Henkersmaedel come, kiss me the head. My mouth is a black
throat, but you are good and noble."

If I may--

Sophie, my executioner girl, 
Come, kiss my skull.  
Though my mouth is 
A black maw, 
Yet you are good and noble.

Alexandra (who thinks that little snippet superbly morbid, and dares to
challenge the Babelfish)
