Fitzgerald, Ella - Stone Cold Dead In The Market Lyrics




He's stone-cold dead in de market
He's stone-cold dead in de market
He's stone-cold dead in de market
I killed nobody but me husband

Last night I went out drinking
When I came home, I gave her a beating
So she catch up the rolling pin and went to work on my head
Till she bash it in

I lie cold dead in de market
Stone-cold dead in de market
I lie cold dead in de market
She killed nobody but her husband

I lick him wit' thee pot and thee fryin' pan
I lick him wit' thee pot and thee fryin' pan
I lick him wit' thee pot and thee fryin' pan
And if I kill him, he had it coming

Man, he's stone-cold dead in de market
He's stone-cold dead in de market
He's stone-cold dead in de market
I killed nobody but me husband

My family they swearin' to kill her
My family they swearin' to kill her
His family they swearin' to kill me
And if I kill him, he had it coming

I lie cold dead in the market, child
Cold dead in the market, child
I lie cold dead in the market
She kill nobody but her husband

There is one thing that I am sure
He ain't goin' to beat me no more
So I tell you that I doesn't care
If I was to die in the electric chair

Man, he's stone-cold dead in de market
He's stone-cold dead in de market
He's stone-cold dead in de market
I killed nobody but me husband

Hey, child, I'm coming back and bash you on your head one more time

No, no, man, you can't do that

You stone-cold dead in de market, murderer
Stone-cold dead in de market, de criminal
He's stone-cold dead in de market
I killed nobody but me husband

    What a dreadful song lol way before women rights. Women had to walk through fire back in those days

  3. Ober

    So did she kill him in the market or their home?

  6. aaron frost

    After all this time since I first played LA Noire, I thought it was a song parodying the Japanese because I kept hearing "land of the rising sun". I was wrong. Took me eight years today to figure that one out.

  7. BearyScary

    I LOVE the game that featured this.... but i love even more the fact that she legitimately doesn’t care about dying to kill her abusive spouse. lol That’s some true female empowerment right there haha

  8. Craig Ball

    My late mothers favorite phrase: "And if I killed him, he had it coming".

    And if I kill him, he had it coming

    Here I lie cold dead in the market
    Cold dead in the market
    I lie cold dead in the market
    She kill nobody but her husband

    This is just a re-submit of an old comment I made on this video a few years ago:

    Cole: "What weapons did you use to kill your husband, Ms. Fitzgerald?"

    Ella:" I lick him with the pot and the frying pan (3x). And If I kill him, he had it coming!"

    X-Truth
    Square- Doubt
    Triangle- Lie

    Aerodeth

    @*****
     X- Truth

    Dun dun DLING!

    Cole: I can understand how youre feeling, Ella. The late Mr. Fitzgerald had a huge history of reported violent outbursts. It mustve been scary for you.

    Ella: He had it coming.

    Cole: But something doesnt quite add up. Traces of blood were found in the market, but the body isnt there. So where could his body be?

    Ella: *leans in close to Cole's face* Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.

    Cole: *leans in closer!* WHICH SEA, ELLA?!

    Adaeze Okoli

    @Aerodeth this is my life XD LA NOIRE ALL THE WAY

    Mike Peterson

    Y-Lie.
    Cole: Your lying Ella, you want to tell me the truth.
    Ella: You cant prove it detective
    (Opens notebook)
    Cole: We found a bloody rolling pin at the scene.
