Crime Song Wednesday: Femme Fatale by Aloe Blacc

Thanks to Aaron Phillip Clark for this week’s Crime Song Wednesday

Aloe Blacc’s “Femme Fatale” has less of a narrative arc then past songs we’ve featured on Crime Song Wednesday but it has to be included because it’s an ode to femme fatales.

After the jump you’ll find the lyrics

Here she comes, you better watch your step
She’s going to break your heart in two, it’s true
It’s not hard to realize
Just look into her false colored eyes
She builds you up to just put you down, what a clown

’cause everybody knows (she’s a femme fatale)
The things she does to please (she’s a femme fatale)
She’s just a little tease (she’s a femme fatale)
See the way she walks
Hear the way she talks

You’re written in her book
You’re number 37, have a look

She’s going to smile to make you frown, what a clown
Little boy, she’s from the street
Before you start, you’re already beat
She’s gonna play you for a fool, yes it’s true

’cause everybody knows (she’s a femme fatale)
The things she does to please (she’s a femme fatale)
She’s just a little tease (she’s a femme fatale)
See the way she walks
Hear the way she talks
