Polly Jean Harvey - Bonnie & Clyde lyrics

rate me

( Serge Gainsbourg )

You've heard the story of Jesse James

Of how he lived and how he died.

If you're still in need of something to read, then fine.

Here's the story of Bonnie & Clyde.

Here 'tis Clyde had a petite amie

She was beautiful and her name was Bonnie

Together they had left the straight and narrow

A gang two: B. Parker and C. Barrow

Bonnie and Clyde (2x)

I've known Clyde since we were young and carefree

He was always laid out bright and clean

For you must see that it was society

That drove me to a life of crime and misery

Bonnie and Clyde (2x)

The newspapers think they had our measure.

They say we killed for cold blooded pleasure.

Well, that's not true, but sure it's in our nature.

To shoot first and ask the questions later.

Bonnie and Clyde (2x)

If a Dallas cop is killed or maimed,

And they have no suspect they can blame,

For the police there's nothing mysterious,

They hang it on Clyde Barrow and his mistress.

Bonnie and Clyde (2x)

There's no point in trying to settle down

To find a little house in a quite town.

By the third day there's a tac tac tac tac

Of machine guns making a sneak attack.

Bonnie and Clyde (2x)

One of these days they will take my life,

But I just hope that Bonnie will survive.

No I don't mind how they make me pay.

Bonnie here just hopes that Clyde can get away.

Bonnie and Clyde (2x)

Ambushed on a road, their end was nigh.

The only way out for them was to die.

But more than one of them went down below.

And they died Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.

Bonnie and Clyde (2x)
