  • By: jimmy buffett, tom corcoran
  • 1973
  • Well now billy voltaire was a piano player up from miami way
  • He used to play in the bars, he could sound like the stars
  • Ladies would pay and pay
  • One night he did wind up playin in havana town
  • Nobody knew, least billy voltaire that these were his final sounds
  • He met up with meritta, a dancer in from the coast
  • Half woman, half child, she drove him half wild
  • He loved that lady the most
  • One night he did find her in the arms of shrimper dan
  • So he pulled a knife, took poor dannys life
  • And then he turned his own cold hand
  • Chorus:
  • And its just a cuban crime of passion
  • Messy and old fashioned
  • Yeah, thats what the papers did say
  • Its just a cuban crime of passion
  • Anjejo and knives a slashin
  • Yeah but thats what the people like to read about
  • Up in america, up in america
  • Well now they never found meritta, some people say she got ill
  • Billy voltaire had no one to claim him, he was buried on paupers hill
  • And no one talks about em no more, it happened just a week ago
  • But people get by and people get high
  • In the tropics they come and they go
  • Chorus:
  • And its just a cuban crime of passion
  • Messy and old fashioned
  • Yeah, thats what the papers did say
  • Its just a cuban crime of passion
  • Anjejo and knives a slashin
  • But thats what the people like to read about
  • Up in america, up in america
