200,000 in counterfeit 50 dollar bills
200,000 in counterfeit 50 dollar bills

One day he's a Greek
One day he's Italian
He's 42 years old
He's George from Baltimore

He's a hustler
Making money on the street every day
"What he does with his dough?"
Some say

It's a shame Petey Reds think he's gamblin'
Everybody knows George is gettin' high
But he'll swear on his mother's grave
That he spends all his dough on the horses at the Pimlico

Hit 'em for 700 last night
Now he got his hand out, somethin' ain't right
You can call it profit, you can call it lost
If he gets that train back to Baltimore

200,000 in counterfeit 50 dollar bills
200,000 in counterfeit 50 dollar bills

George can turn a ten to a grand real quick
To spend on his medicine, he hates gettin' sick
His doc gotta Benz, a white girlfriend, now the State gotta Benz
The country's got a Benz 'cause she was workin' for him

She could turn the lights out over at the White House
Still George got to get his
Looking for a pocket for his 50 dollar bills
Looking for a thruway to his thrills on the train ride back to Baltimore

200,000 in counterfeit 50 dollar bills
200,000 in counterfeit 50 dollar bills

200,000 in counterfeit 50 dollar bills
200,000 in counterfeit 50 dollar bills

One day he's a Greek
One day he's Italian
He's 42 years old
He's George from Baltimore

It's a shame Petey Reds think he's gamblin'
Everybody knows George is gettin' high
So high
