I got drunk with a real nice guy last night
In a mood to talk or fight
And he said, "What's the matter
You don't look like you do so bad"

I said, "I just been taking for everything I had
Someone took a fancy to my wallet and my coat
So what you smiling at, ain't you been in that boat?
It's something that there really should be
Something done about"

He said, "Don't knock it, Sonny
That's the way I started out
And now I got a nice suit, I got a nice car
It's been a nice day
Don't tell me that crime don't pay, okay"
