Death Cab for Cutie
Sung it like a beauty
Stepped out forgetting
Danger has a duty
Lonely night
He wants to squeeze her tight

They murder for a dollar
No-one hears you holler
Wrap up your baby
Then you'll be a scholar

[Chorus:]
Love stops knocking
Your heart stops rocking
It's crime time
Crime time

Out on the mainland
Hit him with a right hand
Stepped on his ego
Now he feels like a man
Do it right
It's a lonely fight

Playing Fats Waller
Lipstick on your collar
Back in 1950
People had their honor

[Chorus]

They murder for a dollar
No-one hears you holler
Wrap up your baby
Then you'll be a scholar

[Chorus]
