lyrics

It's a long week, but you're still short
And that don't look too good on the report
And your job feels like a blood sport
A coliseum calling for your head

Here's the straight dope from an old hand
Working hard don't work, you need a new plan
Your livelihood is messing with your life span
So here's a method you should try instead

You take a little off the top, a dollar from the till
Cause if you don't do it then the next guy will
We're all entered in a ledger of haves and have-nots
Those who've been getting and those who've been got

It's a small thing, a detail
To redirect the proceeds of your next sale
Play it cool, kid, and you can't fail
While the other guys are swimming in the red

You take a little off the top, a dollar from till
Cause if you don't do it then the next guy will
We're all entered in a ledger of haves and have-nots
Those who've been getting and those who've been got

They say there's no honor among thieves and sharps
But I've heard my share of lies sung with angel harps

You take a little off the top, a dollar from till
Cause if you don't do it then the next guy will
We're all entered in a ledger of haves and have-nots
Those who've been getting and those who've been got
