Crime Of Passion Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

She had a rag top Eldorado tuck-in-row pleat
She picked me up in Colorado and put me right in the drivers seat
I said I got no money, you know I got no job
She said, "I tell you what honey, let's find a place to rob"

Now the man at the station's name was Jim
I saw it sewed on his shirt
I told him do what I say you'll live another day
Nobody's gotta get hurt

It was a crime of passion
She took me by the heart when she took me by the hand
Crime of passion
A beautiful woman and a desperate man

Well I thought the thing was over she was counting the cash
When an unmarked Chevy Nova made the blue lights flash
She said, "Officer, would you help me please?"
I looked at her and she was pointing at me

You see Jim at the station played his part
He talked a little perjury
He went to great pains to leave out a name
He was a future ex-husband, can't you see?

It was a crime of passion
She took me by the heart when she took me by the hand
Crime of passion
A beautiful woman and a desperate man

Now the cop at the station's name was Joe
Saw it on his badge on his shirt
He said you'll never get away just do what we say
Nobody's gotta get hurt

It was a crime of passion
She took me by the heart when she took me by the hand
Crime of passion
A beautiful woman and a desperate man

Crime of passion
She took me by the heart when she took me by the hand
Crime of passion
A beautiful woman and a desperate man

It was a crime of passion
It's just a crime of passion
