Stone Cold Dead In The Market Lyrics

Stone Cold Dead In The Market - Louis Jordan/Ella Fitzgerald

He's stone cold dead in de market

 

He's stone cold dead in de market

He's stone cold dead in de market

I killed nobody but me husband

 

Last night I went out drinking

 

When I came home I gave her a beating

So she catch up the rolling pin and went

To work on my head

Till she bash it in

 

I lie cold dead in de market

 

Stone-cold dead in de market

 

I lie cold dead in de market

She killed nobody but her husband

 

I lick him wit' thee pot and thee fryin' pan

I lick him wit' thee pot and thee fryin' pan

I lick him wit' thee pot and thee fryin' pan

And if I kill him he had it coming

Man he's stone cold dead in de market

He's stone cold dead in de market

 

He's stone cold dead in de market

I killed nobody but me husband

 

My family they swearin' to kill her

My family they swearin' to kill her

His family they swearin' to kill me

And if I kill 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 kill nobody but her husband

 

There is one thing that I am sure

 

He ain't goin' to beat me no more

So I tell you that I doesn't care

If I was to die in the electric chair

Man he's stone cold dead in de market

 

He's stone cold dead in de market

 

He's stone cold dead in de market

I killed nobody but me husband

 

Hey child I'm coming back and bash you

On your head one more time

No no man you can't do that

You stone cold dead in de market murderer

Stone-cold dead in de market de criminal

He's stone cold dead in de market

 

I killed nobody but me husband
