Natalie Merchant Put The Law On You Lyrics

Last updated:

Do I have to put the law on you baby
For all the wicked things you do?
Am I gonna have to put the law on you baby?
That was not what I wanted to do

Do I have to put the law on you baby
To try and make you come out clean for every evil deed?
You're just about the lowest and the dirtiest thing
I've ever seen

Did you really think you could pull it off
The perfect crime, crime of the heart?
Do you really think that you'll get away
Do the crime and never ever pay?

Do I have to put the law out on you baby
Lock you up and throw away the key
For the countless counts of low down double-cross you've been about
Have you no decency?

Did you really think that you could pull it off
The perfect crime, crime of the heart?
Did you really think that you'll get away
Escape my justice until you're dying day?

Though you made it clear from the very start
There was no trusting you with my foolish heart
Though you maybe made it clear that didn't make it right

Do you really think you'll get away?
You can't escape my justice 'til my dying day
