The Fall of the House of Borden Lyrics

A New Rock Musical
Lizzie Borden the Musical - The Fall of the House of Borden Lyrics

BRIDGET
In the house of Borden
Somebody left us quite a mess
Splattered blood and brains on everything
Except on Lizzie's dress

It's a crime scene, it's a nightmare
It's a bloodbath, it's a fright
It's a butcher's shop in the house of Borden

A mob is gathering outside
Half the town is in the yard
The press is in a frenzy
Cops are standing guard

It must've been a lunatic
A foreigner, a beast
But it's just us girls in the house of Borden

LIZZIE (spoken)
I was in the backyard

ALICE (spoken)
Did you see anyone or hear anything?

LIZZIE (spoken)
I saw no one. Heard no screams

ALICE (spoken)
Where were you in the yard?

LIZZIE (spoken)
I was up in the barn loft

ALICE (spoken)
Why would you go up there after... what happened?

LIZZIE (spoken)
I went out to get a... lead sinker for my fishing trip.
I heard a distressing noise, like scraping,
And came back and found the screen door open

ALICE (spoken)
How long were you up there?

LIZZIE (spoken)
Twenty minutes?

ALICE (spoken)
It must've been sweltering!

LIZZIE (spoken)
I ate some pears

BRIDGET
Lizzie was in the backyard
Or did she say the barn?
It's only been a day now
And she's spinning quite a yarn

What we know for sure
Is there were four and now there's two
There's no coming back to the house of Borden

In the house of Borden
Somebody left us quite a mess
Splattered blood and brains on everything
Except on Lizzie's dress

It's a crime scene, it's a nightmare
It's a bloodbath, it's a fright
And it blew the roof off the house of Borden

We laid them out in the dining room
It's going on day two
I know it sounds disgusting
But it's 1892

There's no AC
It's August
And it's ninety-five degrees
Well, you do the math
