Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
You keep on investing everything you had
Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
They are all protesting, you're luckier than the rest

You were the last one, to find out what you want
While all your friends went, chasing their careers
They called you crazy and said you'd never make it
They all  moved out to their suburbia that year
Life is so good, no one else could see it
It never stopped you from hawkin' it around

You knew you had it, long before they found it
Everywhere the doors slammed, everybody turned you down (but)

Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
You keep on investing everything you had
Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
They are all protesting, it's only luck at best

Now fame has hit you, old friends keep on calling
And all the slamming doors are taken off the hinge
They all remember the encouragement they gave you
You have to turn each time and try to hide a grin
It's good to be there, they said you'd never make it
That satisfaction's feeling good to know

You knew you had it, long before they found it
Everywhere the doors slammed, everybody turned you down (but)

Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
You keep on investing everything you had
Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
They are all protesting, you're luckier than the rest

Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
Couldn't get arrested
You're luckier than the rest
Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
You keep on investing everything you had
Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
Couldn't get arrested
You're luckier than the rest
Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
You keep on investing everything you had

Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
Couldn't get arrested
You're luckier than the rest
Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
You keep on investing
You're luckier than the rest
Couldn't get arrested, couldn't get arrested
