Once that you've decided on a killing...
First you make a stone of your heart
And if you find that your hands are still willing
Then you can turn a murder into art

There really isn't need for bloodshed
You just do it with a little more finesse
If you can slip a tablet into someone's coffee
Then it avoids an awful lot of mess

It's murder by numbers one two three
It's as easy to learn as your ABC

Now if you have a taste for this experience
And you're flushed with your very first success
Then you must try a twosome or a threesome
And you'll find your conscience bothers you much less

Because murder is like anything you take to
It's a habit-forming need for more and more
You can bump off every member of your family
And anybody else you find a bore

Because it's murder by numbers one two three
It's as easy to learn as your ABC

Now you can join the ranks of the illustrious
In history's great dark hall of fame
All our famous killers were industrious
At least the ones that we all know by name

But you can reach the top of your profession
If you become the leader of the land
For murder is the sport of the elected
And you don't need to lift a finger of your hand

-The Police "Murder by Numbers"

1. Even better, the Sting/Frank Zappa version on "Broadway the Hard Way"
Featuring a hilarious anti-Jerry Falwell introduction from "Mister Sting."

4. "Oi wrote the fucking song, right?"
I love that Lalo Schifrin-esque backing Frank came up with. Great album, "Broadway..." is. The solo on "Any Kind of Pain" is worth the price of the CD alone.

5. Just going to suggest that ...
In fact I really don't know how the original song goes (the instrumentals).

I only hear the FZ/Sting version of this song in my head.

The whole album is great, so you definitely won't be wasting your money on song.

Cheers
