  • Miriam
    That's such a pretty name
    I'm gonna say it when
    I'll make you cry

    Miriam
    You know you done me wrong
    I'm gonna smile when
    You say goodbye

    Now I'm not the jealous type
    Never been the killing kind
    But you know I know what you did
    So don't put up a fight

    Miriam
    When you were having fun
    In my big pretty house
    Did you think twice?

    Miriam
    Was it a game to you?
    Was it a game to him?
    Don't tell me lies

    I know he said it's not your fault
    But I don't believe that's true
    I've punished him for being too weak
    Now I've saved the best for you

    And I'm trying not to hurt you
    'Cause you might not be that bad
    But it takes a lot to make me go this mad

    Oh Miriam
    That's such a pretty name
    And I'll keep saying it
    Until you die

    Miriam
    You know you done me wrong
    I'm gonna smile when
    You say goodbye

    You know you done me wrong
    I'm gonna smile when
    I take your life
    Mmm, mmm, mmm Writer/s: BRIAN BURTON, NORAH JONES
