      About "Peg and Pete and Me"

      Lyrics for Stan Ridgway - "Peg and Pete and Me"

      I can feel the life runnin' out of me workin' here at Pete's
      Two years ago it was just the thing
      Workin' cars part time every week
      I met 'em both at a drag race
      They both dressed pretty snappy that day
      Pete's wife Peg put the make on me
      While Pete just looked the other way
      Now no one can say what your future will hold
      Or what your life will have in store
      We went home that night
      Pete passed out on the couch
      And then Peg pulled me down on the floor
      Well, I know she knew what she was doing
      Forbidden fruit, but what the hell, I bit
      That's all it took, my fate was sealed
      That night the flame was lit
      And every night when the lights go out
      Pete drinks his booze and then he passes out
      And I hear a footstep outside my door
      And then I remember what I started working here for
      CHORUS
      Peg and Pete and me
      One and one and one make three
      Peg and Pete and me
      One and one and one make three
      Now tell me what would you do if you were in my shoes?
      Tonight Peg, we gotta stop this thing
      I don't know if we can, Peg said
      "Don't worry, now Pete's asleep and I've got a certain plan
      You know everything is in my name," she said,
      "and anyway I love you so very much.
      He'll never feel a thing
      Just like he never woke up
      And after that it will be just us."
      Every night when the lights go out
      Pete drinks his booze and then he passes out
      And I hear a footstep outside my door
      And then I remember what I started working here for
      CHORUS
      The next morning when I woke up Peg was gone
      But the dtective said, "Son, yo ugotta come downtown with me
      'Cause we know you killed Pete dead."
      The jury found me guilty
      And sent me up for ninety-nine to life
      And if there's any advice I can give from this cell
      NEver trust a rich, dead man's wife
      CHORUS
