She had a ragtop El Dorado tuck and roll pleat
She picked me up in Colorado and put me right in the driver's seat
I said I got no money you know I got no job
She said I tell you what honey let's find a place to rob
Now the man at the station's name was Jim I saw it sewed on his shirt
I told him do what I say you'll live another day nobody's gotta get hurt
It was the crime of passion she took me by the heart when she took me by the hand
Crime of passion a beautiful woman and a desperate man

Well I thought the thing was over she was countin' the cash
When an unmarked Chevy Nova made the blue lights flash
She said officer won't you help me please I looked at her and she was pointin' at me
You see Jim at the station played the part and I talked a little perjury
He went to great pains to leave out her name
He was her future exhusband can't you see
It was the crime of passion...

Now the man at the station's name was Joe I saw it on the badge on his shirt
He said you'll never get away but do what we say nobody has to get hurt
It was the crime of passion...
Crime of passion...
It was the crime of passion It's just a crime of passion

    The sole reason to singing crime of passion would be if a woman had done you wrong, whether it involved the law or not.
