Don't know why I'm down here
Must be something I said
Or some small imperfection
In my soul or in my head

Don't know why I'm down here
Don't reserve to roast or bake
I'm fighting off slanderous allegations
Why don't you give the kid a break?

Don't you think maybe we could talk this over?
You're a reasonable man
Could we discuss my grave situation?
I'm a miserable man and I'm in the frying pan

Give the kid a break
Give me one good reason why I should?
Well, I have a
Give the kid a break

All right, all right, so I made a few mistakes
But listen for heaven's sake
Watch your language, kid
Okay, okay, don't get hot

Don't question my judgment
He only reaped what he sowed
He cast his pearls before swine
And that's good enough for me

I don't want to talk it over
Even though I'm a reasonable man
Sonny, from over here
Looks like you're in no position to bargain
You're a convicted man, you're right in the frying pan

Give the kid a break
Yeah, please give me a break
Give the kid a break
Nah, nah, I don't think so, man

Come on, you know I got what it takes
Can't you give me a break?
Sure thing, kid, when hell freezes over
Okay, don't give the kid a break

Hey you guys, I thought you were on my side
Don't give the kid a break
Yeah, well thanks a lot, pals

Listen boss, maybe we can make a little deal
Isn't there anything I can say
Or some kind of fine I can pay anything?

Don't know why I'm down here
Must be something I said, I'm sorry
Or some small imperfection
In my soul or in my head

It might be some infection
It might be a small imperfection
Or a clear case of misdirection
Yeah, it must be a small imperfection
In my soul or in my head

Give the kid a break
