Little Murders

Little Murders

It’s not illegal

And yet it’s lethal

An innuendo

That when crescendos

Is gonna kill

A little murder

A little dirt

Ill will

A thrill

 

Here’s to little murders

Cheers to those who do them

Scrap that cloak and dagger-you

Needn’t use them

There is a way

To put someone away

With little, subtle things

That you do

And you say

And

Amen

I’ve done them

Gone and picked a perfect victim

And done him in

And

Ah yes

They’re gruesome

Even to the ones who do them

Go and do some

 

I love an intrigue

A little mystery

Sleuthing them daily

Who-done-it gets me

And even worse

A little murder

Is hard to capture

At first

The worst

 

Here’s to little murders

Cheers to those who do them

Scrap that cloak and dagger-you

Needn’t use them

There is a way

To put someone away

With little, subtle things

That you do

And you say

And

Amen

I’ve done them

Gone and picked a perfect victim

And done him in

And

Ah yes

They’re gruesome

Even to the ones who do them

Go and do some

You cannot see them

But you can feel when

A smile gets eerie

And soon you’re weary

Some looks can kill

A little murder

Behind a flirt

Covert

It hurts

 

Here’s to little murders

Cheers to those who do them

Scrap that cloak and dagger-you

Needn’t use them

There is a way

To put someone away

With little, subtle things

That you do

And you say

And you do
