Mungo Jerry — Ella Speed lyrics

Come and take heed, be sworn by the death of Ella Speed,
Come and take heed, be sworn by the death of Ella Speed,
Now Ella Speed was downtown and she was having a lot of fun,
And here's the deed Bill Martin done
Now Ella Speed was downtown and she was having a lot of fun,
And here's the deed Bill Martin done
Oh Bill Martin he was tall and slender, Better known as him being a bar tender
Oh Bill Martin he was tall and slender, Better known as him being a bar tender
The deed that old Bill Martin done, Was commit murder with a Colt 41,
The deed that old Bill Martin done, Was commit murder with a Colt 41,
When folks downtown heard Ella Speed was dead,
Well, they were really red and red,
When folks downtown heard Ella Speed was dead,
Well, they were really red and red,
Come and take heed, be sworn by the death of Ella Speed,
Come and take heed, be sworn by the death of Ella Speed,
