Crashing in the kitchen
Noises in the hall
Roll over and go back to sleep
It's just a dream, that's all
So how come the window's broken?
What caused the glass to fall?
And who put that bullet hole in Peggy's kitchen wall?
Tell me, who put that bullet hole in Peggy's kitchen wall?

Police arrive
Muddy up the floor
Dig out half the plaster
It's a thirty-eight for sure
Kick the neighbour's door in
Saying "better tell it all"
Who put that bullet hole in Peggy's kitchen wall?
Tell me, who put that bullet hole in Peggy's kitchen wall?

Blaster on the back porch
Shaking up the lane
They're drinking gin and joking
Laughter falling down like rain
Everybody wears a halo
Never saw nothing at all
So who put that bullet hole in Peggy's kitchen wall?
Tell me, who put that bullet hole in Peggy's kitchen wall?
Tell me, who put that bullet hole in Peggy's kitchen wall?
