Take The Money And Run

I didn’t use to be this way
Was a good kid back in the day
Safe to say things have changed

Yeah I remember when
I brushed my teeth every night
Held my pretty little girlfriend tight
I didn’t let the bedbugs bite

But that was so long ago
And now I’ve lived long enough to know

You take the money and run
Don’t wait till the deal is done
I’m telling you son
Take the money and run

Step out the back
Shoot like a bullet from a gun
Boy don’t be dumb
Just take the mo- mo- mo- mo- money and run

You’re asking me what I would do
With a cool one milli or two
Safe to say I pity the fool
Who does the right thing
And follows the voice in his heart
I wish I was told from the start
There’s no such thing as art

But that was so long ago
And now I’ve lived long enough to know

You take the money and run
Don’t wait till the deal is done
I’m telling you son
Take the money and run

Step out the back
Shoot like a bullet from a gun
Boy don’t be dumb
Just take the mo- mo- mo- mo- money and run

I’m not gonna beg for it
Not even gonna break a sweat for it, no no
Gonna pocket the cash like Jumpin’ Jack Flash now
Not gonna repent for the greedy old man that I’ve become

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
