If you live here where I do in Texas

You’ve heard much about Bonnie and Clyde;

They roamed all over our Texas towns

By the law—they just could not abide.


They ran from the law and State Troopers

Shooting machine guns at U.S.Marshals too;

They spawned colorful manhunts in the ’30’s

But robbing banks was their true waterloo.


The FBI laid great plans for cataching them

Wantad for murder, robbery, kidnapoping too;

Even stolen cars were their infamous forte’

More cold cash is what made them this do.


Though Bonnie and Clyde now lie buried

And all their greedy cash money is long gone;

Every now and then there’s another ‘bank-sighting

—And their rip-roaring story lives on and on.
