This is life in this world
Somethings go right, somethings go wrong
It's just how the world can be
People just wanna be free, yeah

The verdict came in and it said I was guilty
I looked at the judge, hey, America built me
Tried to get rich but they labeled me filthy
Only God can judge me, touch me, fill me

My friend calls me at 9 o'clock
Says, get the car, it's time to rock
Never heard him speak this way
(Let's go, man)

I grab the keys and hit the road
It's all a flash but who would know
How the story would unfold?

Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime

My friend gets in the car
With bags filled to the top with loads of cash
(See this paper, man?)
Throws his pistol on the dash
(Yeah, it's time to get money now)

Says, I'm sorry for the crime
That I've involved you in this time
You're the only friend I've got

So don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
So don't charge me for the crime

I start to freak and scream so loud
Just like the females in the crowd
That's when he gets in my head
(Come on, man, come on, man, you gotta do this)

You could live just like a king
With everything you'd ever need
All the dreams of every man

Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time, you know
Don't charge me

Sirens sound and my heart was pounding
I looked at my man as the cops surround him
A team on the scene with no objective
The American dream can be so deceptive

Now I see the flashing lights
There goes my future and my life
Now I've gotta do what's right
(They've got us, man, they got us)

I stop the car
And throw the keys out of the window
Sets me free
I throw the pistol in the back

I throw him out of the car
I say, you know me well
I'm not going to jail
I'm not paying your bail
Believe me when I say

You won't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me

Wrong place, wrong time
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
