Murder, Tonight, In the Trailer Park
(Michael Timmins )

Murder tonight in the trailer park.
Mrs. Annabelle Evans found
with her throat cut after dark.
Her pockets turned inside out
her dresser drawers turned upside down.
Anna's neighbour, Peg, identifies the body
lets out a hollow kind of sound.

Homicide is tying yellow ribbons
around her silver Airstream.
Red cherries slashing up the night
cutting through that cordoned crime scene.
There's been a murder
in the trailer park tonight.

Murder tonight in the trailer park.
Pack your things, Ann Marie,
we're heading west
we're going to make a fresh start.
I've been saving pennies,
been looking forward to this day.
No time for questions are you coming
or are you going to stay?

Crosstown at the Waterton
George Evans is sitting tall and tight,
buying drinks for all the regulars
bragging about how them bones
danced for him tonight.
There's been a murder
in the trailer park tonight.

Murder tonight in the trailer park.
Faceless man counting crumpled bills,
hotel neon fights the dark.
TV set in the corner, they're talking murder
on the late-night news
He turns down the sound,
waits for the sports,
he only wants to know,
did I win or did I lose.

There's been a murder
in the trailer park tonight.
Murder tonight in the trailer park.
