I remember it as plain as day although it happened in the dark of the night
I was strolling through the streets of Paris, and it was cold it was starting to rain
And then I heard a piercing scream and I rushed to the scene of the crime
but all I found was the butchered remains of two girls lay side by side

Murders in the Rue Morgue, someone call the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue, leave before the killers go free

There's some people coming down the street, at last there's someone heard my call
I can't understand why they're pointing at me, I never done nothing at all
But I must have got some blood on my hands because everyone's shouting at me
I can't speak French so I couldn't explain and like a fool I started running away

Murders in the Rue Morgue, someone call the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue, am I ever gonna be free

And now I've gotta get away from the arms of the law, all of France is looking for me
I've gotta find my way across the border for sure, down the south to Italy

Murders in the Rue Morgue, someone call the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue, I'm never going home.

Well I made it to the border at last, but I can't erase the scene from my mind
Anytime somebody stares at me, well I just start running blind
Well I'm moving through the shadows at night, away from the staring eyes
Any day they'll be looking for me 'cause I know I show the signs of...

Murders in the Rue Morgue, running from the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue, running from the arms of the law

Solo

Murders in the Rue Morgue, running from the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue, am I ever gonna be free

It took so long and I'm getting so tired, I'm running out of places to hide
Should I return to the scene of the crime where the two young victims died
If I could go to somebody for help, it'd get me out of trouble for sure
But I know that it's on my mind that my doctor said I've done it before

Murders in the Rue Morgue, they're never gonna find me
Murders in the Rue Morgue, I'm never going home.
