Here’s the story of Bonnie and Clyde

Now Bonnie and Clyde 4- …are the Barrow

5- …gang

How those who 7- …steal
Are usually found dying or 8- …dead

They call us cold-hearted 9- …killers
They say we were heartless and 10- …mean
But I say this with pride
That I once knew Clyde when he was 11- …honest
And upright and clean

But the 12- …laws fooled around
Kept taking him down and locking him up in a cell
‘Til he said to me: “I’ll never be 13- …free
So I’ll see a few of them in 14- …hell

If a policeman is 15- …killed in Dallas
And they have no clue or guide
If they can’t 16- …think or find
They just wipe their slate clean
And blame it on Bonnie and Clyde

If they try to act like 17- …citizens
And rent ourselves a nice little flat
About the third night
We’re invited to a 18- …fight by the
Sub gun’s rat tat tat

Some day they’ll go down 19- …together
They’ll bury us side by side
For few it will be grief for the law a relief
But it’s 20- …death for Bonnie and Clyde
