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!
