"As You Wish" as written by and David W Terry....
Please,
I beg you for my life,
For true love waits,
You see I must survive,
Good night, sleep well,
(I've got work to do)
I'll probably kill you in the morning.

But for tonight (please)
I beg you for life,
For true love waits,
You see I must survive,
Good night, sleep well,
I'll probably kill you in the morning,
But for tonight

As you wish,
Hearts and candy glitter and gold, is what
I'm dreamin' of.
As you wish,
Reese's peanut butter cup, is what
I'm waitin' for,
As you wish,
Certainly upon my return, my love won't be ignored.

To the vein,
First I'll cut your feet of and then, the hands
Above your arms.
To the vein,
Next you'll lose your eyes, it goes, every thing,
It has to go.
To the vein,
Except your ears, you wanna hear people scream:
"Dear God what is that thing?"

    General CommentI had never heard of Aqueduct until I went to a concert & he was the opener... and opened with this song, explaining "it's based on my favorite movie, The Princess Bride"
    we have been lovers ever since.

    General CommentExcept except except I noticed you've written "to the vein" when it is really to the PAIN, as in when Westley is threatening Humperdinck on the bed in that room.
