You now how people have these little habbits that get you down Like bernie, Bernie, he liked to chew gum No Not chew, pop So, I came home this one day and I'm really irritated And I'm looking for a little bit of sympathy And there's bernie lying on the couch, drinking a beer and chewing No Not chewing, popin'! So I said to him, I said If you pop that gum one more time, And he did So, I took the shotgun of the wall and I fired two warning shots Into his head!

I met Esakiel Young at saltlake city about 2 years ago And he told me he was single and we hit it of right away So, we started living together He'd come home, I'd fix him a drink wed have dinner And then I found out Single he told me Single my ass! Not only was he married, oh no, he had six wives One of thoese mormans you know So that night, whe he came home from work I fixed him his drink as usally You know, some guys just can't hold there arsenic!
He had it coming, he had it comimg He took a power in his stride And then he used And he abused it It was a murder but not a crime
Now I'm standing in the kitchen, carvin' up a chicken for dinner Minding my own business When in storms my husband wilber in a jealous rage You've been screwing the milkman he says He was crazy And he kept on sayin you've been screwing the milman He kept on saying it over again You've been screwing the milkman Then he ran into my knife He ran into my knife 10 times.
If you'd been there, if you'd seen it, I bet ya, you would have done the same

My sister veronica and I had this double act And my husband charlie traveled around with us Now for the last number in our act we did these 20 acrobatic tricks in a row 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, backflips, flipflops splits, spread eagles One right after the other Now, we were staying at the hotel cicero You know, boozing, having a few laughs when we runout of ice So, I go out to get some And when I came back, I open the door And I see Veronica and charlie doin number 17 The spread eagle. Well, I was in such a state of shock, I completly blacked out, I can't remember a thing And it wasn't til later, when I was washing the blood of my hands I even knew they were dead!
They had it comeing, they had it coming They had it coming all along I didn't do it, but if I'd done it How could you tell me that I was wrong x2
I loved elle lipshitz more then I could possibly say He was a sensetive guy A painter Everynight he went out looking for himself And on the way, he found, Ruth, gladis, rosemary and Irving You could say we broke up coz of artistic differences He saw himself alive, I saw him dead
The dirty bum bum bum bum bum x2
He had it coming, he had it coming He only had himself to blame Because he used us And he abused us It was a murder but not a crime
He had it coming, he had it coming He had it coming all along We didn't do it But if we'd done it How could you tell us that we were wrong.
