13. BONNIE AND CLYDE

Well you’ve heard the story
Of Jesse James.
Of how he lived
of how he died,
You liked that, right?
You ask for another?
Well then,
Listen to the story
of Bonnie and Clyde.

So, it goes like this
Clyde’s got a girlfriend
She’s fine and her name
is Bonnie.
The two of them form
the Barrow gang.
Their names:
Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.

Me, when I knew Clyde
once upon a time.
He was quite a loyal guy,
Straight and honest.
You gotta believe
that society is to blame
for ruining him for good.

They wrote so much crap
About me and her.
They painted us out to be
Cold blooded killers.
It’s no fun,
but you’ve gotta shut up
who ever starts screaming.

Every time a policeman
gets shot.
A garage or a bank
gets robbed.
For the Police
it isn’t any mystery:
The signature says Clyde Barrow
Bonnie Parker.

Now every time
we try to slow down.
Live a quiet life
in a furnished apartment.
Inside of three days
Comes the rat-a-tat-tat
of the machine guns.
Coming for the attack.

One of these days
We’ll die together.
Me, I don’t care,
I only fear for Bonnie.
It does not matter
If they kill me.
Me, Bonnie,
I fear for Clyde Barrow.

In the end,
they couldn’t get away with it.
The only solution
was to die.
They dragged more than one
down with them
when they died.
Barrow and Bonnie Parker.
