Miriam, that's such a pretty name,
I'm gonna say it when I make you cry
Miriam, you know you done me wrong
I'm gonna smile when you say goodbye

Oh I'm not the jelous type,
Never been the killing kind
But you know I know what you did
So don't put up a fight

Miriam, when you were having fun
In my big pretty house, did you think twice
Miriam was it game a to you,
Was it a game to him
Don't tell me lies

I know he said it's not your fault
But I don't believe that's true
I've punished him from ear to ear,
Now I've saved the best for you

And I tried not to hurt you,
Cause you might not be that bad
But it takes a lot to make me go this mad

Oh Miriam that's such a pretty name
And I'll keep saying it, until you die
Miriam, you know you done me wrong
I'm gonna smile when you say goodbye
You know you done me wrong,
I'm gonna smile when I take your life
