Ma Baker. Boney M

boney-m-ma-baker

Katherine “Ma” Baker (1873-1935) fue una criminal estadounidense de leyenda, carne de prensa como lo fueron John Dillinger o aquellos jovenzuelos enamoradizos conocidos como Bonnie y Clyde. Casada con George Baker, tuvieron 4 hijos que formaron la banda de los Baker-Karpis, autora de varios robos, secuestros y otros crímenes en la primera mitad de la década de los treinta.

Nunca se llegó a saber si Ma Baker conocía las actividades de la banda, si era su cómplice o su líder en la sombra. Pero sí se sabe que sirvió de inspiración a James Hadley Chase para su novela No Orchids for Miss Blandish, que en la serie Batman de 1966 apareció un personaje llamado Ma Parker y que Boney M le dedicaron una canción en 1977.


FREEZE! I’m Ma Baker
Put your hands in the air,
Gimme all your money

This is the story of Ma Baker,
The meanest cat from ol’ Chicago town

She was the meanest cat
In old Chicago town
She was the meanest cat
She really moved them down
She had no heart at all
No no no heart at all

She was the meanest cat
Oh she was really tough
She left her husband flat
He wasn’t tough enough
She took her boys along
‘Cos they were mean and strong

Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
She taught her four sons
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
To handle their guns
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
She never could cry
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
But she knew how to die

They left a trail of crime
Across the U.S.A.
And when one boy was killed
She really made them pay
She had no heart at all
No no no heart at all

Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
She taught her four sons
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
To handle their guns
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
She never could cry
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
But she knew how to die

She met a man she liked
She thought she’d stay with him
One day he formed with them
They did away with him
She didn’t care at all
Just didn’t care at all

Here is a special bulletin.
Ma Baker is the FBI’s most wanted woman.
Her photo is hanging on every post office wall.
If you have any information about this woman,
Please contact the nearest police station…

Don’t anybody move!
The money or your lives!

One day they robbed a bank
It was their last foray
The cops appeared too soon
They couldn’t get away
And all the loot they had
It made them mighty mad
And so they shot it out
Ma Baker and her sons
They didn’t want to hang
They died with blazing guns
And so the story ends
Of one who left no friends

Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
She taught her four sons
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
To handle their guns
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
She never could cry
Ma Ma Ma Ma – Ma Baker
But she knew how to die

    Clinical and experimental effects of medium chain triglyceride based fat emulsions-a
    review. In these areas of the world, there is usually less
    access to meat, but people do have access to
    virgin coconut oil. All you need do is stop cooking with vegetable oils, and start cooking
    with coconut oil.

  3. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My site covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and
    I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be
    interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing
    from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great images or
    video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could
    undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Terrific blog!
