Mike's Big Book of Songs
Home - Elise

what you did was wrong
was a long time ago
with a woman called elise
you wouldn't want anyone to know
least of all your wife
least of all your kid
you're not real proud
of whatever you and her did

but Elise she comes knocking
she wants a dollar for a beer
she says she'll start talking
and you don't want anyone to hear
nobody would listen but how can you be sure
gotta give her a dollar
just to keep Elise from your door

you got a gun
Elise ain't got family
Elise she ain't got anyone
so when she comes knocking
you invite her in
no one hears the shot
nobody is listenin'

now your troubles should be over
but they only just begun
now you hear a knocking
you know it couldn't be anyone

except Elise
your worst fear
now she's talking
and you're the only one who can hear
nobody will listen
but how can you be sure
gonna take more than a dollar
just to keep Elise from your door
