Minor Crime – Lyrics

One day a neighbor found
A perfect rose
Growing in a garden down the road
It was reaching up
Through a split-rail fence
Swaying gently in the summer breeze

She was feeling bold
So she snipped that bud
Now it’s on her window sill
And now she feels
A smile creep
Upon her when she looks upon that rose

You never know
What you might find
When you perpetrate
A minor crime
Commit an act out of character
Something no one ever thought they’d see you do

And even I
Had a Rolex crush
So I bought one in a store in Curacao
It was fabricated
In a shady shop
Likely in the city of Tapei

I bet it’s hidden
Down an alleyway
Some Taiwanese woman
Slaving every day

But I have to say
A smile creeps
Upon me when I look upon that dial

You never know
What you might find
When you perpetrate
A minor crime
Commit an act out of character
Something no one ever thought they’d see you do
