The Lyrics

saturday night, i was downtown
workin' for the f.b.i.
someone had been killed by bad men
they said it happened last july
bulldozin' started on the west side
and her body showed 'fore too long
just about to call up the d.a. man
cause the evidence was gettin' real strong

this dame was victimized
now, she's drawin' some flies
my stomach is startin' to rise
she was a long dead woman in a black dress
now, it looks like this case has been solved
i took one look...she was a bad mess
cause her facial features had dissolved

i saw her on a cold steel table
the morgue was now her habitat
the toe tag read "jane doe", on the label, boy
cause her kinfolk just don't know where she's at
its just another case of violence
the autopsy's already begun
at last they pulled her off that table
and they said that she'd been killed by a gun

well, the d.a. was pumpin' my left hand
he said that this case was closed tight
but at night, i still get scared
cause i wasn't prepared
by the shock that i was given
by this dame, no longer livin'
twas a long dead woman in a black dress
now, it looks like the case has been solved
i took one look...she was a bad mess
cause her facial features had dissolved
had dissolved
had dissolved
had dissolved

I could picture the crime scene perfectly, with mentholatum under the noses.....very nice job on this 555

Really good job...very visualising! And I thought a parody of an X-Files episode was too gruesome...microwaved popcorn figures into it. Again, good job! 5's

My husband and I actually found a body a couple of years ago. But it was drug-related, not a homicide. 5-5-5

Well written, Alvin... But I have to agree that I don't find it funny. Is this a true story ?
alvin rhodes - March 08, 2004 - Report this comment
