Kelly Jones – Emily lyrics

Emily worked at the diamond store
She wanted all the rings that she couldn't afford
One long day a tall man came
Asked her to marry him and he bought her a ring

He whisked her off to the seven seas
Wined and dined her till she could barely see
One long night the tall man came home
To find Emily in bed with the hotel boy

Oh Emily, what have you done?
It's all come undone
Tell me who lost and who won

Caught in bed with another man's girl
Not just screwing, they were kissing as they moaned
One long knife, the tall man drew
And he stuck the hotel boy cold right through

Cops came along and Emily wept
As they took away all of her fancy things
One long lie the tall man heard
So he took back the ring before they took him to jail

Oh Emily, what have you done?
It's all come undone
Tell me who lost and who won

Oh Emily, what have you done?
Tell me who lost and who won
It's all come undone
Oh Emily
