lyrics

"SOMETHING FOR NOTHING"

He tried to take what he could
The bad and the good
Something for nothin'
He never did what he should
The rest of us would
Love him for nothin'
Living life as a crook
Your name in the book
Freedom for nothing'
His past leaving him shook
The last of his jooks
Something for nothin'

10 years old stealing candy from the shop
12 years old stealing money from his pops
By 15 he was doin his first dime
He always knew his life was always a life of crime

He tried to take what he could
The bad and the good
Something for nothin'
He never did what he should
The rest of us would
Love him for nothin'
Living life as a crook
Your name in the book
Freedom for nothing'
His past leaving him shook
The last of his jooks
Something for nothin'

Sweet taste of freedom on a sunny day in June
Sweet smell of ladies down at The Spanish Moon
Sweet words turn cold, red blood on his knife
And now our hero crook is back to running for his life

He tried to take what he could
The bad and the good
Something for nothin'
He never did what he should
The rest of us would
Love him for nothin'
Living life as a crook
Your name in the book
Freedom for nothing'
His past leaving him shook
The last of his jooks
Something for nothin'

On the road somewhere to lay his head
Just out of reach of the law that wants him dead
One more night without a woman and a bed
One more chance to take back all the lies he said
Sweet taste of freedom turning sour everyday
Sweet smell of love is so damn far away
Sweet words turn cold when no ear is in sight
The light goes out on another lonely night

He tried to take what he could
The bad and the good
Something for nothin'
He never did what he should
The rest of us would
Love him for nothin'
Living life as a crook
Your name in the book
Freedom for nothing'
His past leaving him shook
The last of his jooks
Something for nothin'
