WELL, SHE'S MURDER
MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE

MY GIRL'S MURDER
MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE

YES, I CALL MY BABY MURDER
‘CAUSE SHE'S ALWAYS KILLING ME

I WORK HARD EACH DAY
TRYING TO PAY THE RENT
BUT, WHEN I GET MY PAYCHECK
SHE'S ALREADY GOT IT SPENT

SHE'S MURDER
MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE
THAT'S WHY I CALL MY BABY MURDER
‘CAUSE SHE'S ALWAYS KILLING ME

*Sax Solo

WELL, SHE'S MURDER
MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE

MY BABY'S MURDER
MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE

YES, I CALL MY BABY MURDER
‘CAUSE SHE'S ALWAYS KILLING ME

*Guitar Solo

WELL, MY BABY'S LIKE A BLOOD HOUND
SHE CAN SMELL THE COLOR GREEN
SHE COMES TO ME BEGGING
LIKE I'M AN ATM MACHINE

SHE'S MURDER
MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE

YES, I CALL MY BABY MURDER
‘CAUSE SHE'S ALWAYS KILLING ME

OH SHE'S MURDER
MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE

YEAH, SHE'S MURDER
MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE

I CALL MY BABY MURDER
‘CAUSE SHE'S ALWAYS KILLING ME
