Ruth was a night club dancer
She got abused by top punters,
raped, beaten up
Ruth fell in love

On her way
On her way
On her way
To Holloway

He got her trashed up every day
She made a plan to let him pay
Couldn't handle anymore
Waited for him out the door

On her way
On her way
On her way
To Holloway

She shot him down as her last straw
No one thought of common law
State at play
State at plat

Ended up at the end of a rope
Is there any fucking hope?
Easy prey
We're easy prey!

No Ruth Ellis anymore
No Ruth Ellis anymore
No more judgement passed as law
No death penalty anymore!
No death penatly anymore!

fundamentally... cracked up!
