The sacred heart is bleeding
Go tell the Holy Ghost
That the junkie is still cheating
To get the thing he needs the most

Lady Luck has got me covered
Keeping her watchful eyes over me
The lovers are discovered
The charge is first degree

Angel, she's a killer
She's just flown in from the coast
Makes the hit, it's a winner
Leaves you dead as the post

Then Sally took to playing poker
The joker is her favorite card
And The drunk he can't stay sober
He says it's oh, much too hard, it's much too hard

Meantime something seedy
Was happening across the hall
Someone seemed to be groaning
You could hear it through the wall

And the cops they came like lightning
The bullets flew astray
And the noise it was frightening
But the crook he got away

Songwriters
LYNOTT, PHILIP PARRIS / ROBERTSON, BRIAN DAVID
