Crime Don't Pay Lyrics

Artist: Joe Jackson
Album: Beat Crazy

I got drunk with a real nice guy last night
In a mood to talk or fight
And he said, what's the matter
You don't look like you do so bad
I said I just been taking for everything I had
Someone took a fancy to my wallet
and my coat
So what you smiling at - ain't you been in that boat
It's something that there really should be
Something done about
He said don't knock it sonny
That's the way I started out
And now I got a nice suit
I got a nice car
It's been a nice day
Don't tell me that crime don't pay
Okay
