"Murder By Numbers" as written by Andy Summers and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
Once that you've decided on a killing
First you make a stone of your heart
And if you find that your hands are still willing
Then you can turn a murder into art

There really isn't any need for bloodshed
Just do it with a little more finesse
If you can slip a tablet into someone's coffee
Then it avoids an awful lot of mess

Because it's murder by numbers
One, two, three
It's as easy to learn
As your ABC
It's murder by numbers
One, two, three
It's as easy to learn
As your ABC

Now if you have a taste for this experience
And you're flushed with your very first success
Then you must try a twosome or a threesome
And you'll find your conscience bothers you much less

Because murder is like anything you take to
It's a habit-forming need for more and more
You can bump off every member of your family
And anybody else you find a bore

Because it's murder by numbers
One, two, three
It's as easy to learn
As your ABC
It's murder by numbers
One, two, three
It's as easy to learn
As your ABC

Now you can join the ranks of the illustrious
In history's great dark hall of fame
All our greatest killers were industrious
At least the ones that we all know by name

But you can reach the top of your profession
If you become the leader of the land
For murder is the sport of the elected
And you don't need to lift a finger of your hand

Because it's murder by numbers
One, two, three
It's as easy to learn
As your ABC
It's murder by numbers
One, two, three
It's as easy to learn
As your ABCDE

It's murder by numbers
One, two, three
It's as easy to learn
As your ABC
It's murder by numbers
One, two, three
It's as easy to learn
As your ABC

Murder by numbers
One, two, three
It's as easy to learn
Just turn on your TV

    General CommentA great cover, they took the song and made it their own, their respect for The Police is obvious.
