The Lyrics

since your bust, you've become a marked man, now
you loused up things, cause you don't understand, now
before you act...spend some time on a plan, now
keep your freedom, cause you won't dig the can, now
don't want 'em to see ? bet a cop's around

there's a safe, you've been wantin' to blow, now
rest assured, that the cops gonna show, now
the wagon comes, and its off, that you go, now
you may not listen, but i still told ya so, now
don't want 'em to see ? bet a cop's around

don't you get yourself plea bargains, fool
you'll be burned every single last time
those lawyers guys are always money grubbin'
try to find good ones, or else you'll take a real drubbin'

before you take a must review, now
make one's fingered you, now
make have left no clues, now
they'd love to catch ya, when the act is through, now
don't want 'em to see ? bet a cop's around

Cops always seem to be around when you are speeding, but I've run out of gas twice in the last 8 years on major stretches of highway and, mysteriously, no cops were to be found. 5s
