The Lyrics

I RIGHT THE WRONGS

I'm such a goody two-shoes,
And I've always known right from wrong.
Which is why I joined the probation service,
I see sinners, and I right the wrongs.

I right the wrongs when people go astray,
I right the wrongs and hope they go away.
I right the wrongs to try and save the world;
And here in song I right the wrongs.

It's not always that simple,
There are people who don't want to know.
I do my best, and whether they like it or not,
I'll get them in a room, and they have nowhere to go.

I right the wrongs when people go astray.
I right the wrongs and hope they go away.
I right the wrongs and try to save the world;
And here in song I right the wrongs.

Oh, my methods may be odd,
And I'm accused of playing God,
I'm just trying to make this world a better place.
And for those who favour sin,
I'll be there to rake you in.
I can tell you're afraid,
And afraid I will tell
You to leave this life of Hell.

I right the wrongs when people go astray,
I right the wrongs and hope they go away.
I right the wrongs and try to save the world;
And here in song I right the wrongs.

I right the wrongs when people stray,
I right the wrongs and hope they go away,
I right the wrongs and try to save the world;
And here in song I right the wrongs.
