GotyeNoir Excursion

A handsome stranger Gave me a ride He had a suitcase full of lies That he sold me I sensed no danger When I was there right by his side He said I compelled him to confide So he told me Take this car And drive downstate Then take off the licence plates And wait for me I could have argued But he said for my trouble I could keep Half the money in the bag on the back seat At least, that's what he told me And he said he thought I looked trustworthy And I must admit that the thrill of it all got the better of me So I drove down the highway with great speed Until they resounded behind me Sirens! The police They pull me over to the side of the road And tell me that the car was stolen, that's why I was followed I try to tell them I was only doing what I was told But no, they won't listen to me They cuff my hands and say 'Now girl, the money, where did you hide it?' Then I know without even checking the bag That there's no money inside it But when they read my rights I know that it's no use Saying, 'I'm not lying' No, please let me go Please listen to me I am not guilty A handsome stranger tricked me Why did he have to hand-pick me? He told me to take this car And drive downstate Then to take off the licence plates And wait there for him But of course they don't believe me So from there they drive me back to the station And after I've been booked they began a three-day interrogation I barely ate, I only slept an hour But somehow I stayed patient and calm They did me no harm But the bag was the key to this mystery He bought it the very same day that he Robbed that bank upstate and then picked me To be his fall guy patsy Five years later When I'd almost forgotten that nightmarish day I was struck by the handsome features of a stranger across the way As he got out of a car, with a girl behind the wheel, and I heard him say Take this car And drive downstate Then take off the licence plates And wait for me © 2018
