Because Bonnie Loved Clyde
"I'll follow you," said Bonnie,
"Through fire, water, hell."
"I'll come with you," cried Bonnie,
"Through freedom and jail cell."
"I'll be with you," said Bonnie,
"Though by sunrise we'll both have died."
All this Bonnie said proudly,
Because Bonnie truly loved Clyde.
"The journey will be dangerous,"
Said Clyde to her one day.
"You are such a tiny woman,
You might not make it all the way."
But Bonnie loaded up her gun,
And hopped on for the ride.
All this Bonnie did surely,
Because Bonnie surely loved Clyde.
They were pursued through states,
Almost half the entire land,
And robbed quite a few banks.
Their work was skillfully planned.
Then one day as they were driving,
A cop pulled up from behind.
They took out their automatics,
And laughed as Bonnie cried.
She cried not for her own life,
But because her Clyde had died.
And soon she would follow him,
Because Bonnie always loved Clyde.
They weren't buried as they wanted,
Not buried side by side.
But wherever they are, they're together.
