Rating: 2.8
They loved each other with love so deep,

Ah the lady and the tramp was true love, the tramp and the thief but a paid liaison, a thief stole money but not a heart, the tramp was a love deep paid for a body laid, but eventually the thief was hung high but the tramp never cried, for her love was red wine which was why she laughed drunk all the time.
