72 She Thinks It's a Crime

(Gillan, Morris)
From one special edition of the Ian Gillan album One Eye To Morocco

With a gloomy countenance the lovely B enquired if this song might be about her. Fair enough question I suppose, as one or two in the past - Don't Hold me Back and Hole in My Vest for example - have been directly inspired by personal events. In this case however, I was able to reassure her that someone else's wife was deserving of my attention.

That someone else was/is a friend so the identity must remain hidden, but I can assure you she possessed a character that can only rhyme with 'twitch'.

She Thinks It's a Crime

(Gillan, Morris)

I put my bags down for a minute
I put the phone down for a while
I must have done something bad and wicked
Or I'd have got more'n just an evil smile

It's not my job to see the future
Right now is bad enough
But if I don't get out of here
It's going to get worse
It's going to get rough

All day, all night
Forever moaning
I think it's a sign
All day, all night
Whatever I do
She thinks it's a crime

I throw my hands up in surrender
She put her foot down, I rest my case
She's gonna hurt me now and forever
With that bad look on her face

Now the future's not too certain
Thinking about it makes me twitch
But if I don't get out of here
It's going to get worse
If I stay with that girl

All day, all night
She won't stop moaning
I think it's a sign
All day, all night
Whatever I do
She thinks it's a crime
