A BODY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE (Words & Music by James Power) Midnight Tears Music ©2012


I TOOK A WALK DOWN ALONG LAKE PONTCHATRAIN I WENT TO SEE THE LEVEES AFTER IT RAINED I’D NO IDEA WHAT I WOULD FIND ALONG THE WAY I’D NO IDEA WHAT WOULD GREET ME


LAST SHE WAS SEEN WAS HEADING DOWN BY THE RAVINE WHERE SHE WOULD BREATHE IN THE SWEET MAGNOLIA TREES I’M WAITING FOR THE POLICE, THE HOUR’S GETTING LATE HERE COME AN ALLIGATOR, I DON’T LIKE HIS FACE


THERE’S A BODY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE IT MIGHT BE MARY, MIGHT BE FRED, IT MIGHT BE JAKE LOOKS LIKE MRS LANDRY, BUT IT HASN’T GOT A FACE THERE’S A BODY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE


WELL, I COULD TELL SOMETHING BAD WAS GOING ON IT’S ALWAYS TRUE WHEN A BLOATED CORPSE COMES ALONG I’D BE QUESTIONED BUT MY ALIBI WAS STRONG I’D BEEN DRINKING ALL MORNING


THERE’S A BODY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE IT MIGHT BE MADDY, MIGHT BE RÉMI, MIGHT BE JAKE LOOKS LIKE BRUCE DEMPSEY, BUT IT HASN’T GOT A FACE THERE’S A BODY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE


ABOUT THIS TIME I WAS TAKEN IN FOR QUESTIONING SERGEANT BRADLEY ROSE WOULD COTTON NO SHENANIGANS ASKED ME WHAT I KNEW, WHAT I’D SEEN & WHERE I’D BEEN I SAID, “I’D LIKE TO SEE A LAWYER”


IT SEEMS A KID HAD GIVEN HIM THE RUN AROUND KID HAD SEEN IT ALL BUT WOULDN’T RAT NOBODY OUT NOW HE’D HALF A MIND TO SEND ME PENITENTIARY BOUND THAT’S WHEN I THREW UP ON HIS OXFORDS


THERE’S A PARTY GOING ON AT PONTCHATRAIN BUT NOT THE KIND WHERE YOU’RE LIKELY ENTERTAINED THE KIND THE POLICE DRAG THE WATERS FOR A BRAIN THERE’S A BODY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE


DISTRICT ATTORNEY HAD ME ON THE WITNESS STAND SIX WAYS TO SUNDAY, I NEVER HAD CHANCE EVEN HAD EVIDENCE MY EX-WIFE WAS A MAN NOW DID WE REALLY HAVE TO GO THERE?


SOON MY CELEBRITY IT STARTING KICKING IN A HIGH-PRICED LAWYER PROVED I HADN’T DONE A THING I BEAT THE RAP, NOW I’M FREE, I’M FREE AGAIN BUT STILL THE MURDERER WALKS FREE


THERE’S A BODY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE IT MIGHT BE MARY, MIGHT BE FRED, IT MIGHT BE JAKE LOOKS LIKE MRS LANDRY, BUT IT HASN’T GOT A FACE THERE’S A BODY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE


THERE’S A BODY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE IT MIGHT BE CHLOE, MIGHT BE CLAUDETTE, MIGHT BE JAKE LOOKS LIKE JOE WHITNEY, BUT IT HASN’T GOT A FACE THERE’S A BODY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE
