Don't do the crime if you can't do the time
It's said that it just don't pay
But what good's working hard, all they give you is your card
And you know there's not much you can say

So you take what they give, you've no money to live
And your family don't understand
After all these years, they will end up in tears
With a mountain of bills in their hand

Now your lesson is learned, there's nowhere to turn
It's no use pleading for help
When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself

When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself

The dilemma you've found is you're morally bound
Now your moral code, it needs a review
So what do you care, you know life isn't fair
And for years they've been stealing from you

Now your lesson is learned, there's nowhere to turn
It's no use pleading for help
When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself

When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself

The dilemma you've found is you're morally bound
Now your moral code, it needs a review
So what do you care, you know life isn't fair
And for years they've been stealing from you

Now your lesson is learned, there's nowhere to turn
It's no use pleading for help
When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself

When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself
When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself

When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself
When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself

When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself
When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself

When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself
When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
From going and helping yourself

When you're left on the heap, there is nothing to keep you
