Murder tonight in the trailer park
Mrs. Annabelle Evans found 
With her throat cut after dark
Her pockets turned inside out
Her dresser drawers turned upside down
Anna's neighbor, Peg, identifies the body
Lets out a hollow kind of sound 

 Homicide is tying yellow ribbons  Around her silver Air stream 
Red cherries slashing up the night  Cutting through that cordoned crime scene 
There's been a murder 
In the trailer park tonight 

 Murder tonight in the trailer park
Pack your things Ann Marie,
We're heading west
We're going to make a fresh start
I've been saving pennies,
Been looking forward to this day
No time for questions are you coming 
Or are you going to stay

 Crosstown at the Watertown  George Evans is sitting tall and tight,
 Buying drinks for all the regulars  Bragging about how them bones  Danced for him tonight 
There's been a murder 
In the trailer park tonight 

 Murder tonight in the trailer park
 Faceless man counting crumpled bills,
 Hotel neon fights the dark
 TV set in the corner, they're talking murder
On the late-night news
He turns down the sound,
 Waits for the sports,
He only wants to know,
'Did I win or did I lose'

There's been a murder 
In the trailer park tonight  Murder tonight in the trailer park
