Life imitates the game of chess 
You can be the rook or the pawn 
But if you have the strategy that's best 
You can be the King or in this case the Don 
It's easy to get knocked out of the game 
Depending on which way you want to play 
You've got to have eyes on the back of your head 
Now that we have that out of the way 

[Chorus] 
Rev up the Lincoln 
And let's get to drinking some caffeine 
Let's go to Nicolletis 
Cause he makes a mean spaghetti sauce 
I'm a connoisseur of the finer things in life 
I'll talk any flick with Al Pacino 
I'm a man of respect and I prefer to be addressed as Padrino 

If you're the type that likes to spill the beans 
You could be a stone in someone's shoe 
You'll receive a kiss on each cheek 
And then you'll know that pretty soon the stone will be removed 
Everyone knows that crime doesn't pay 
It doesn't pay the taxes away 
You've got to be slick if you don't want it to stick 
Now that we have that out of the way 

I know it's not a wise thing to do 
Writing funny songs about the mob 
But if it's all the same to you 
I don't see it as a gang but a club 
Where men sit like gentlemen 
Plotting their events about 
Things I shouldn't understand, comprehend or care 
Like, oh, I don't know maybe I shouldn't go there 
After all it is a family affair 

Stay out of the papers 
Don't get caught 
Leave the singing to Sinatra and always keep your big trap shut 
Capice? 

The underworld is like an undertow, if you don't respect it 
It will surely bring you down, when you least expect it  
Hey expect it from all sides 
Once you're in it it's for life 
Don't be famous be infamous and you will live to see another day 
Be wise about with whom you discuss 
Now that we have that out of the way
