The Lyrics

she was prodical, neat and quite methodical
betterment for homes
late nights all alone in the garden
ooh -o - o - o
so frustrating, this inside trading
called her on her cell
MMMaa--rr-t-hhaa?
but as she sellf off imclone,
the knock comes at the door

Bang Bang Martha's silver platter
came down upon her head
Bang Bang martha's silver platter
they caught her, now she's dead

in the home again, Martha gets to roam again
D.A is annoyed
hoped she could avoid an unpleasant scee-ee-ne
he says Martha Hey, plead the fifth today
I'm sure it works this time
pay off princely fines, you must not be sooo-oo-oo-o
but Old Martha turns her back and is coy,
so the Grand Jury reminds..

Bang Bang Martha's silver platter
came down upon her head
Bang Bang martha's silver platter
they caught her, now she's dead

audit 31 said "we caught a dirty one"
Martha sold Imclone
painting testimonial pictures.. oooh-o-ooo-o-
Traders like Valerie, screaming from the gallery
Martha can't go free (Martha can't go free)
I hope the judge agrees, and he tells her soo-oo-oo-o-
I know she lies, she's moving her lips
and now we won't be kind..

Bang Bang Martha's silver platter
came down upon her head
Bang Bang martha's silver platter
they caught her, now she's dead

There were areas where the pacing needed work but overall I think it was a very clever idea and you wrote very well :)
