The Lyrics

Would it be we're wise we could get over,
They never wait in lines so long.
And would it be we're wise we'd live much better,
In the underworld where we belong.

You know they'll never put you in those fetters,
Wise-guys they stay uptight and stick together.

Wouldn't it be nice some mokes we shake-up,
Give a warning then break legs a few.
And after having dent some sculls together,
Wearin' brand new clothes an' 'spensive shoes.

No petty crimes no never we'd be tending,
I wish we could enlist and quit pretending,
Why couldn't we be wise?

Then a stiff we'd sink where fish with rope to stay in the deep blue. (fun, fun, fun)
Maybe then we'd start to hear that jingle thing start comin' through.
We could be gnarley. (We could be gnarley)
And we could act crappy, (While nobody slappy.)

Better to be wise. (ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba)

With all the schemes no bores there be about it,
The job is so diverse it's fun can't doubt it.
So now how about it.
Why couldn't we be wise.

It's tight - no maybes
Feels right - oh baby

It's tight - no maybes
Feels right - oh baby

It's tight - no maybes
Feels right - oh baby

It's tight - no maybes
Feels right - oh baby
The holidays can be a real downer for some.
