Bonnie and Clyde

Versions: #1#2
Have you heard the story of Jesse James?
How he lived, how he died?
You liked it, yeah? You want another one?
Very well, hear the story of Bonnie and Clyde.
And so it was, Clyde had a girlfriend.
She was beautiful, and her name was Bonnie.
The two of them formed the Barrow gang.
Their names: Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow.

Me, when I met Clyde back then,
He was a loyal, honest and lawful guy.
We must believe that it was society,
That completely ruined me.

Bonnie and Clyde
What didn't they write about her and me?
People claimed that we kill in cold blood.
What we must do is never fun,
Shutting up whoever starts to yell.

Bonnie and Clyde
Every time some policeman gets hit,
Some garage or bank gets robbed,
For the police, that is no mystery.
It's signed Clyde Barrow, Bonnie Parker.

Bonnie and Clyde
Now every time we try to straighten up,
To settle down quietly in a nice flat,
Within three days, comes the bang! bang! bang!
Of the sub-machine guns that return to attack.
Bonnie and Clyde
Bonnie and Clyde
some day soon, we'll fall together.
I don't care about myself; it's for Bonnie that I am afraid.
Whatever they do to my hide,
I, Bonnie, am afraid for Clyde Barrow.

Anyway, they couldn't make it work anymore.
The only solution was to die.
But more than one followed them down,
When Barrow and Bonnie Parker died.
