Partners In Crime (Holmes Rupert)

She's under-age and she's underweight And she's one month hooked and she's two months late She comes from Wyoming And he named her Desiree She hit New York like a farm-fresh egg Hits a frying pan, she's too proud to beg So she works on the sidewalk He administrates her pay She calls him Swagger 'cause of his hat He adopted her in three seconds flat By the bus station doorway Where he found her half-alive He is her family and in return He beats up on her and takes all she can earn And she needs him so badly Losing him she'd never survive Him and her, me and you We do it to each other whatever we do Hand in hand, arm in arm It's always been the two of us doing us harm It's the same deal every time We're all of us partners in crime She is a buyer for Bloomingdale's He's division head of commercial sales They met at the office Odds we one to one they'd meet Work is the great aphrodisiac It's that nine-to-five gets 'em in the sack Afternoons at the office Evenings at the health retreat And all day long he just balls her out 'Bout some shipment due on the air freight route But when they leave the office Guess who gets the upper hand? She's into power, he's into pain And beneath her heel, he will long remain And he needs her so badly Loves it when she takes command Him and her, me and you We do it to each other whatever we do Hand in hand, arm in arm It's always been the two of us doing us harm It's the same deal every time We're all of us partners in crime If there's a heaven, if there's a hell It's made up of those who we love so well And we make hell or heaven As we do when we're alive Two people meet and they fix their deal And they get what they deserve And they want the way they feel And we need love so badly Losing it we'd never survive Him and her, me and you We do it to each other whatever we do Hand in hand, arm in arm It's always been the two of us doing us harm It's the same deal every time We're all of us partners in crime
