I know you know all the pros and cons
They help you get to everything you want
Greasing policemen bending all the rules
Make them an offer that they can't refuse

One crime, baby, I can't forgive
The kind that hurts where I live
I'm a nice guy, I try to wait and see
If you'll get caught or go free a

You stole my heart and left me blue
It look like crime pays for you
You do it and you get away
It seem like crime pays
(Crime pays)

Beat the heat no you couldn't pay me off
You're staying cool no matter what it costs
You get caught, you'll never do the time
Ooh, I have to say you got a way

With one crime, baby, I can't forgive
The kind that hurts where I live
It's all too clear but I still don't see
Why all the guilty go free

You stole my heart and left me blue
It look like crime pays for you
You do it and you get away
It seem like crime pays
(Crime pays)
It seems like crime pays
(Crime pays)

Catch a thief and let her go
You won't get back the love she stole
Ooh, shake her down but she don't mind
'Cause she commit the perfect crime okay, okay

You know, I know you're a pro and con artiste
Oh baby, you're a false alarm
Why do I try to play it by the rules
I was the victim but I'm not a fool

You stole my heart and left me blue
It look like crime pays for you
You do it and you get away
It seems like crime pays
(Crime pays)
It seem like crime pays
(Crime pays)

It seem like crime pays
(Crime pays)
It seem like crime pays
(Crime pays)
Ooh

(Crime pays)
Crime pays
(Crime pays)
You stole my heart, yeah

(Crime pays)
Ooh, ooh
(Crime pays)

(You're gonna get away)
Get away bad
(You're gonna get away)
Crime pays

(You're gonna get away)
Get away bad
(You're gonna get away)
Crime pays

(You're gonna get away)
Get away bad
(You're gonna get away)
Crime pays for you, you do me wrong girl

(You're gonna get away)
Get away bad
(You're gonna get away)
Crime pays

(You're gonna get away)
You stole my heart and left me blue
(You're gonna get away)
It look like crime pays for you

(You're gonna get away)
You do it and you get away
(You're gonna get away)
It seem like crime pays
