Don't Do the Crime
Don't do the crime, If you can`t do the time It's said that it just don't pay. But what good's working hard When all they give you is your cards And you know there's not much you can say. So you take what they give You've no money to live And your family don't understand. After all these years They will end up in tears With a mountain of bills in their hands. Now your lesson is learned There's nowhere to turn And it's no use pleading for help. When you're left on the heap There is nothing to keep you From going and helping yourself The dilemma you've found Is you`re morally bound Now your moral code needs a review So what do you care You know life isn't fair And for years they've been stealing from you.
