Songtekst

(c)1974: Say Yes Music AG-Cham

[parlando]:
Hello?
-Lady we've just kidnapped your husband,
have 800,000 dollars ready by tomorrownight and lady,
no police or you'll never see your husband alive again!

I remember standing there so petrified, my hands frozen to the phone
As the stranger's words echoed in my ear and chilled me to the bone
Some dark tragedy had come right home to me
They'd kidnapped my man and his life was in their hands

[chorus]:
He was a hostage, a hostage, his life was at the mercy of their hands
He was a hostage, a hostage, his life depending on their cold demands

[parlando]:
Hello?
-Now lady here's your husband to prove we're not playing any games.
-Hi honey! Listen, I'm okay, just make sure you do as they tell you
and whatever you do, don't go to the police!

Well I couldn't raise that kind of money fast, I was left no other choice
So I called the police and they came in fast saying "Leave it up to us
Just do as you're told, the ransom's in this bag
We'll watch over you and we'll have your husband back soon"

[chorus]

[parlando]:
Hello?
-Listen very carefully lady, drive out to the abandoned shack on Highway 16,
throw the money out the window and keep driving and remember lady, no police!

Oh my heart was heavy as I made that drive, I was sure something was wrong
I soon found the shack, I threw out the bag and I just kept driving on
Then the shots rang out and I turned the car about
On the ground one lay but the other had gotten away

[chorus]

Well they found my husband a few days later
Yes, the funeral's tomorrow
