Violet said she was angry,
she said she was angry with me,
she said she was coming round my house to murder me.
she had a big knife,
she wanted to stick it in me.
I took out a baseball bat,
now it's her that's dead, not me.
and the judge brings down his hammer,
there's a black hat on his head.
they're going to take me from here
and hang me 'till I'm dead.
I'm sitting here on death-row
hoping they might pardon me,
or they're going to take me from here
and hang me on Tuesday.
hang me on Tuesday, they're going to hang me on Tuesday (X3)
Violet's mum, she found a note.
and the note, the note it said,
that violet was coming round my house,
and she wanted me dead.
well this is my tragedy,
it's a tragedy for me.
they found the note on Wednesday
and they hung me on Tuesday.
so now I'm up in Heaven,
the noose is still around my neck,
that Violet Harrison was a right pain in the neck,
they hung me on Tuesday
