Be My Partner In Crime

I was standing in line at a punk pop show
Waitin’ to order myself a can of PBR
When up came a girl in a Buzzcocks shirt
Who I recognized from the ride in my car

I Ubered her there and it was a fun talk
She said I should come watch her band
The music was loud & she said in my ear
“I wanna do more than hold your hand”

She said
Be my, be my, be my, be my partner in crime
She said
Be my, be my, be my, be my partner in crime
Partner in crime, Partner in crime
Be my, be my, be my, be my partner in crime

I said “ok, but I’ve gotta go home and pack
Do you want me to do that after the show?”
She said “Oh, that won’t be soon enough!”
In about a half an hour she was gonna go

I said “That’s fine, I’ll meet you outside
I don’t live too far away from this place”
Then she smiled and gave me a soft peck
But before I started my frantic race

I said
I’ll be, I’ll be, I’ll be, I’ll be your partner in crime
I said
I’ll be, I’ll be, I’ll be, I’ll be your partner in crime
Partner in crime, Partner in crime
I’ll be, I’ll be, I’ll be I’ll be your partner in crime

I got there and back just as fast as I could
But I couldn’t find that girl anywhere
But she gave me 5 stars and a big fat tip
And I thought to myself “That’s fair”

Then a band mate handed me a note from her
It said “Meet me at the airport, I will wait.”
But then I looked at the girl behind the bar
And I was blessed by a golden hand of fate

She said
Be my, be my, be my, be my partner in crime
She said,
Be my, be my, be my, be my partner in crime
Partner in crime, Partner in crime
Be my, be my, be my, be my partner in crime

I found out the next morning the singer died
On the chartered plane I nearly decided to take
Instead I ended up in bed with the bartender
In a cozy log cabin out at Bloomington Lake

Now we enjoy our life and what we’ve built
Yet I think about that night all the time
When I fell for two girls in the same place
Who fed me the same crazy pick up line

They said,
Be my, be my, be my, be my partner in crime
They said,
Be my, be my, be my, be my partner in crime
Partner in crime, Partner in crime
Be my, be my, be my, be my partner in crime
