One morning in the attic Theodora’s mother told her to play,
She saw their furniture being taken away.
She presently found she had been locked in,
Some bats woke up and heard her sobbing.
The house empty they helped her escape
By a window which with their wings they did break.
By the edge of a dump they found a new place to live
Then a music hall turn they worked up and did.
In the provinces the act they first broke,
Theodora played castanets, the bats walked the tightrope,
Theodora danced, the bats played guitars,
And as a finale then they somersaulted up into the stars.

The weeping chandelier

Between performances Theodora knitted sweaters for the bats,
Soon all over Europe large crowds they did attract.
Then one afternoon at a charity tango tea
Theodora met the Duque de Sangree
The Duke showed Theodora his magic chandelier
That wept when dancers they appeared.
Every time a waltz or a tango was played.
Several weeks later their betrothal was made,

The weeping chandelier

Theodora's mother saw her wedding photo,
She found the daughter she had lost so long ago.
But sadly the end is not happy to tell
Theodora's mother from a balcony fell.
Theodora's father while grieving fell off a cliff,
The bats all drowned on board a ship.
The Duke was eaten by a shark,
Theodora died of a broken heart.

The weeping chandelier
