Life imitates the game of chess
You can be the rook or the pawn
But if you have the strategy that's best
You can be the king or in this case the don

It's easy to get knocked out of the game
Depending on which way you want to play
You've got to have eyes in the back of your head
Now that we have that out of the way

Rev up the Lincoln
And lets get to drinking some caffeino
Lets go to Nicolletis
'Cause he makes a mean spaghetti sauce

I'm a connoisseur of the finer things in life
I'll take any flick with Al Pacino
I'm a man of respect and I prefer to be addressed as Padrino

If you're the type that likes to spill the beans
You could be a stone in someone's shoe
You'll receive a kiss on each cheek
And then you'll know that pretty soon the stone will be removed

Everyone knows that crime doesn't pay
It doesn't pay the taxes anyway
You've got to be slick if you don't want to stick
Now that we have that out of the way

Rev up the Lincoln
And lets get to drinking some caffeino
Lets go to Nicolletis
'Cause he makes a mean spaghetti sauce

I'm a connoisseur of the finer things in life
I'll take any flick with Al Pacino
I'm a man of respect and I prefer to be addressed as Padrino

I know it's not a wise thing to do
Writing funny songs about the mob
But if it's all the same to you
I don't see it as a gang but a club

Where men sit like gentlemen, plotting their events about
Things I shouldn't understand comprehend or care
Like, oh, I don't know maybe I shouldn't go there
After all it is a family affair

Stay out of the papers
Don't get caught
Leave the singing to Sinatra
And always keep your big trap shut
Capice?

The underworld is like an undertow if you don't respect it
It will surely bring you down when you least expect it
Hey, expect it from all sides, once you're in it, it's for life

Don't be famous, be infamous, and you will live to see another day
Be wise about with whom you discuss
Now that we have that out of the way

Rev up the Lincoln
And lets get to drinking some caffeino
Lets go to Nicolletis
'Cause he makes a mean spaghetti sauce

I'm a connoisseur of the finer things in life
I'll take any flick with Al Pacino
I'm a man of respect and I prefer to be addressed as Padrino

I'm a man of respect and I prefer to be addressed as Padrino
I'm a man of respect and I prefer to be addressed as Padrino
