She lived in a little old house
Her only pet was a little gray mouse
She barely knew her family
So all her life she was lonely

Each day and night her husband took the car
And he went drinking at the local bar
She didn’t ever have some fun
And she really had no one
She Was Alone

One day she saw her husband coming at the door
Because of this she thought to herself “I’m not lonely anymore.”
He went right into the home
And now she was not alone

The he pushed her to the ground
Then started to push her around
Then he closed the door and she got raped
He said he would kill her and she couldn’t escape
She Was Alone

He then took his gun and shot her twice
Then he took her body and soaked it in ice
Then he took her body outside
To find a place for it to hide

Then her husband started to cry
Because now he couldn’t deny
That he raped his wife just for fun
And then he shot her with a gun

Her husband decided to kill himself
So he would lie next to her shelf
And nobody would ever find out
Because they both did not shout

Now no one is at that home
It is lonely and it stands alone
At night you hear her husband’s loud cries
Wishing his wife was still alive
She Was Alone
