Lyric:                Frederick Wilmoth Hendricks

Stone Cold Dead in the Market
Ella Fitzgerald and Louis JordanHe’s stone cold dead in the market
He’s stone cold dead in the market
He’s stone cold dead in the market
I killed nobody but me husband

Last night I went out drinking
When I came home I gave her a beating
So she catched up the rolling pin
And she worked on my head until she bashed it in

I lie cold dead in the market
Stone cold dead in the market
I lie cold dead in the market
She killed nobody but her husband

I licked him when he fought on the frying pan
I licked him when he fought on the frying pan
I licked him when he fought on the frying pan
Then if I killed him, he had it coming

He’s stone cold dead in the market
Stone cold dead in the market
He’s stone cold dead in the market
I killed nobody but me husband

My family they’re swearing to kill her
My family they’re swearing to kill her
His family they’re swearing to kill me
And if I killed him, he had it coming

I lie cold dead in the market, child
Cold dead in the market, child
I lie cold dead in the market
She killed nobody but her husband

There is one thing that I am sure
He ain’t going to beat me no more
So I tell you that I doesn’t care
if I was to die in the electric chair

He’s stone cold dead in the market
Stone cold dead in the market
He’s stone cold dead in the market
I killed nobody but me husband

Hey child I’m coming back and bash you on your head one more time
No no mon you can’t do that
Stone cold dead in the market, murder
Stone cold dead in the market,
Stone cold dead in the market
I killed nobody but me husband
