Lyrics

Greedy Crime

Written By: Judi Jaeger

Greedy Crime

I: It was an ordinary life.
She was a regular wife.
Made lemon meringue pie for my father.
mmmm hmm

II: She wasn’t cool, not much glamor.
Didn’t marry for love, it had to find her.
That’s how the girl became my mother.
She loved me, my sister and brother.

Chorus:
Call the police it’s a greedy crime.
Call the police it’s stealin’ her mind.
Call the police it’s takin’ her time.
Call the police it’s a greedy crime.

III: What was ordinary and plain,
was mine just the same.
She could sing me to sleep like no other.
hmmm, my mother.

IV: Gone are those days and who is she?
My mother who sang in the dark to me.
Clouds on her face, nerves all a jangle.
Stolen from us by plaques and tangles.

Chorus

V: Questions more questions fill my lips.
If she doesn’t know me do i still exist?
Clouds on her face, nerves all a jangle.
Stolen from us by plaques and tangles.

VI: hooo oo hoo hoo ooo etc.

Chorus
