  • He was a mighty golden boy, as gold as ever seen
    But when he stepped up to the podium, you could tell                 that boy was mean
    His arms was made of nickel, and his forehead made of wood
    An affidavit from the principal says,"This boy just ain't              no good"
    He stood before the union, and he made a solemn oath
    Uphold the purity of his creed, the others he would toast
    He worked nights at the liquor mart, and he drank to pad              his pay
    When he caught him liftin¹ 40's, he shot a boy last May
                               
  • His momma asked why?
                               
  • His lawyer in the courtroom, made a noble plea
    And the judge he gave him eighteen months, but he was out               in three
    When asked if he ever felt remorse while sittin' up in that           pen
    He said "Hell no, ya know a thief's a thief
    And I'd shoot that fucker again"
