Bonnie and Clyde were lovers

Chasing throughout hill and dale;

Their minds were always on money

(But their souls sadly headed for hell)


Bonnie and Clyde were famous bank robbers

It was Halloween for them most every night;

Playing around with masks and shotguns

—–Kept their future from looming bright.


Although Bonnie was a raving beauty

And Clyde—- one big handsome Beau—–

Both found money and looks weren’t everything

—-So to the hell of jail they did go.


Now if you use your ghostly intuition——-

(Watching close at the stroke of midnight)

You can catch the shadow of Bonnie and Clyde

—-Still robbing banks every Halloween night!
