Well they found her dead
Face down in a ditch
And they chased and caught
That son of a bitch
Ain't no top 40 song
They put him on trial
He killed her with a wrench
Sentenced him to die
But he didn't flinch
Ain't no top 40 song
His lawyer tried
But he'd never tell
Said he'd rather die
Go sing in Hell
Ain't no top 40 song
It's blood on the car seats
Holes in the wall
Wild horse screamin
Kickin slats from the stall
Headlights burnin
Right out of his head
When the world's on fire
And love is dead
Ain't no top 40 song
Judge said son
Now you gotta pay
For what you done
You got anything to say?
Ain't no top 40 song
Just looked at the judge
An then he smiled
Her family raged
His family cried
Ain't no top song
Said ain't nothin to me
I'm glad she's dead
An you'd be too
If you knew what she did
Ain't no top 40 song
Chorus

Well they found him dead
Face down on the floor
And they chased and caught
That crazy little whore
Ain't no top 40 song
They put her on trial
She killed him with a knife
Cut out his heart
They sentenced her to life
Ain't no top 40 song
Her lawyer tried
But she'd never tell
An she never cried
Just sing in her cell
Ain't no top 40 song
It's blood on the car seats
Holes in the wall
Wild horse screamin
Kickin slats from the stall
Headlights burnin
Right out of her head
When the world's on fire
And love is dead
Ain't no top 40 song
Judge said girl
Now you gotta pay
For what you done
You got anything to say?
Ain't no top 40 song
Just looked at the Judge
An then she grinned
I done it once
An I'd do it again
Ain't no top 40 song
Ain't nothin to me
I'm glad he's dead
An you'd be too
If you knew what he did
Ain't no top 40 song

Chorus
