an accusation boogie

the wind accuses

you-you-you     you-you
you did the crime

you-you-you      you

(me?)

you did the crime

oh no
it can’t be me
no
I was not there
at that time

you-you-you     you

no-no-no
you’ve got it wrong

you-you-you     you

no
can’t you see you’re wrong

it’s you-you-you

nuh-uh your case
isn’t even very strong

well who-who-who     who-who

the wind demands to know

who-who-who

(not me)

who was it
do you know

no-no
I cannot say

she’d never speak to me again
and then
she’d take my heart
away

(so sorry
mister wind)
