Dead! - Up For Ran$om Lyrics




He is wanted now dead or alive
Oh he's a sucker for a pair of reds
A fool for their eyes
But I've heard he's a really great man
Yeah somewhere deep down he's a stand-up man
So if you ever find yourself inside a room for two
And this man comes up and he talks to you
Alert the town we'll capture him quick
Alert the town he's already left

You held me
Up for ransom
Up for ransom
Up for ransom
Up for ransom
She told him
You're so handsome, you're so fucking handsome, baby

Now I can't even remember or try to convey
In words what happened to me on the day
He took all that he ever could she trusted him well
Trusted him good
All at once he said to me "you gotta keep it calmed down before it kills me"
Before I wake up and waste my time
Got a fist full of minutes but I'm making it right

You held me
Up for ransom
Up for ransom
Up for ransom
Up for ransom
She told him
You're so handsome, you're so fucking handsome, baby

Please state your name
State it loud and clear
He replies with arrogance and she overhears
Crooks her neck like she is caught on the words he said the way that he talked

Up for ransom...

You held me
Up for ransom
Up for ransom
Up for ransom
Up for ransom
She told him
You're so handsome, you're so fucking handsome, baby

    He is wanted now dead or alive
    Oh he's a sucker for a pair of reds
    A fool for their eyes
    But I've heard he's a really great man
    Yeah somewhere deep down he's a stand-up fucking man
    So if you ever find yourself inside a room for two
    And this man comes up and he talks to you
    Alert the town we'll capture him quick
    Alert the town oh he's already left

    [Chorus:]
    You held me

    She told him
    You're so handsome, you're so fucking handsome baby

    [Verse 2:]
    Now I can't even remember or try to convey
    In words what happened to me on the day
    He took all that he ever could she trusted him well
    Trusted him good, good (good)
    All at once he said to me:
    "You gotta keep it calmed down before it kills me"
    Before I wake up and waste my time
    Got a fist full of minutes but I'm making it right
    [Chorus:]
    You held me
    Up for ransom
    Up for ransom
    Up for ransom
    Up for ransom
    She told him

    He replies with arrogance and she overhears
    Crooks her neck like she is caught
    On the words he said, the way that he talked

    Up for ransom, up for ransom
    Up for ransom, up for ransom
    Up for ransom, up for ransom

    [Chorus:]
    You held me
    Up for ransom
