May Fields Tires of the Joy of Living
Used a Revolver Yesterday Morning
But With Poor Effect
Now Under Arrest

the belle was slowly pealing
the Outside is nothing
oh you kid oh you kid oh you kid.

French Marie mined thirty grand
one year later, she married the man
your weight in gold your weight in gold
how much buckshot can your corset hold?

the belle was slowly pealing
the Outside is nothing
French Alice swallowed tablets
Frankie Polson strychnine
Annie Fields bizarre shooting
Katsu mercury bichloride
Nellie the pig, she acts like she talks
handy with a pistol, even handier with rocks

I know I should go Outside, but hell I can't make the hike again
and if I find the right one, I could mine him till the end
it's not the gold I care for, it's what the gold can buy
a living for my sister
a bathtub full of wine

the belle was slowly pealing
the Outside's got nothing
oh you kid oh you kid oh you kid.

May Fields tires of the joy of living
used a revolver yesterday morning
but with poor effect now under arrest
She dies of old age, a respectable maid.
