A bitter story of betrayal and murder which took place at Chicks Hotel in Port Chalmers, Dunedin


Chicks Hotel

I looked for you at home, Francine
I didn’t think you’d come so soon
I was wondering where you’ve been
How did you get inside our room?
I climbed up through the balcony

I never knew - that you would be so cruel
But you and your lover have played me for a fool

Who could ever tell
When life was going well
That we would find this scene of hell?
Waiting here at Chicks Hotel

Who’s lying there with you, Francine?
Why have you got that gun I see?
I’ll teach you not to cheat on me
I’m sorry now - forgive me please
You’ve robbed me of my sanity



I see you chose a younger man
Don’t shoot now, give us a chance!
Too late, girl, for mercy now
My God, he’s gonna kill us now!
Life will end when love goes sour

Digging a little beneath the surface you will find cooing swing come-ons here (Magical Man), fleeting touches of Americana there (Macs General Store), rockabilly beats and soft rock tendencies throughout." (Ricardo Kerr, NZ Musician). ... more
