*** Gangsters ***

Bernie Rhodes knows don't argue

Why must you record my phone calls?
Are you planning a bootleg L.P.?
Said you've been threatened by gangsters
Now it's you that's threatening me.

You can't fight corruption with con-tricks,
They use the law to commit crime,
I dread to think what the future will bring,
When we're living in real gangster time.

"Don't call me scar face!"

Don't interrupt while I'm talking,
Or they'll confiscate all your guitars,
And catch twenty-two says if I sing the truth,
They won't make me an overnight star.

Don't offer us legal protection,
They use the law to commit crime,
I dread to think what the future will bring,
When we're living in real gangster time.

Bernie Rhodes knows don't argue
