King Diamond - One Down Two To Go Lyrics

The sun has risen, just above the trees
The birds are singing, it's just like a dream
What a perfect morning it... could have been
Salem's in the kitchen, and that's sin
Eggs for three and a little tea
Mixed with the graveyard dirt... from yesterday

Anybody eating Salem's "a la carte" today
Should be taken ill and... waste away

[Salem thinking to himself:]
"You used to be so beautiful, but now you're gonna die
Die, die, both of you... are gonna die, die... die"

Salem's walking up the stairs to the second floor
Silver tray in hand... knocking at the door

[Salem thinking to himself:]
"You used to be so beautiful, but now you're gonna die
Die, die, both of you... are gonna die, die... die"

In a fever, sick as Hell
David's got a snake bite... and all is well
(Salem thinks to himself:)
One down, two to go. "Oh Madame he's got the flu"...

The problem is that Sarah's morning sick again
That pregnant woman, always something wrong

You used to be so beautiful, but now you're gonna die
Die... Sarah die, Sarah die
Die, die... Sarah die, Sarah die

    I first heard the song in Lakai’s fully flared Alex Olson part. Back then I was in high school, fast forward a decade later and I am a huge fan now of king diamond and I’m going to see him in a few weeks in downtown St. Paul. Hail to the King.

    It all started with a skate video.


    Hell ya man, it always feels good to discover/rediscover some amazing metal. King Diamond is one of those bands where every single member is talented as fuck, and you can hear it in the sound.

  45. Aaron f

    Hell Yeah. Honestly I think King Diamond is the best metal singer of all time. Would you agree?

  46. Hari Menon

    Oh no, my friend. No disrespect meant. I love all King Diamond and Mercyful Fate albums - Fatal Portrait, Conspiracy, Them, etc. every single one of them absolutely - each one is a massive masterpiece in its own right. Voodoo just sounds so hectic and hardcore like King re-discovered his true dark side somewhat similar to the same rage in Mercyful Fate's 9 album. King's entire catalog is a a must-have collection.

  47. Aaron f

    What about the Fatal Portrait, Them, and The Conspiracy albums? Do you not like those albums? Well either way I respect your opinion. I mean you obviously have good taste in music! And I'm sure that we both agree that King Diamond Rules \,,/ \,,/

  48. racewiththefalcons1

    Man, that riff is so fucking METAL!!!

  49. john goforth

    I very much agree!!!!! Good Albums!!!

  50. Hari Menon

    This album, Abigail and House of God are simply off the charts.!

  51. Derek Pettys

    SALEM Ate my fukkin Eggs...WTF??
