I DO NOT CLAIM THE RIGHTS TO THIS MUSIC.

Lyrics:

I was walking down the street
When out the corner of my eye
I saw a pretty little thing approaching me

She said "I never seen a man
Who looks so all alone
Could you use a little company?"

"If you pay the right price
Your evening will be nice
Or you can go and send me on my way"

I said "You're such a sweet young thing,
Why d'you do this to yourself?"
She looked at me and this is what she said,

There aint no rest for the wicked
Money dont grow on trees
I got bills to pay
I got mouths to feed
There aint nothing in this world for free

I know I can't slow down
I can't hold back
Though you know I wish I could

Oh no there aint no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good

Not even 15 minutes later
After walking down the street
When I saw the shadow of a man creep out of sight

Then he swept up from behind
Put a gun up to my head,
He made it clear he wasnt looking for a fight

He said "Give me all youve got
I want your money not your life,
If you try to make a move I won't think twice"

I told him "You can have my cash
but first you know Ive got to ask
What made you want to live this kind of life?"

He said
There aint no rest for the wicked
Money dont grow on trees
I got bills to pay
I got mouths to feed
There aint nothing in this world for free

I know I cant slow down,
I can't hold back
Though you know I wish I could

Oh no there aint no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good

Now a couple hours passed
And I was sitting in my house
The day was winding down and coming to an end

So I turned on the TV
And flipped it over to the news
And what I saw I almost couldnt comprehend

I saw a preacher man in cuffs
Taking money from the church,
He stuffed his bank account with righteous dollar bills

But even still I can't say much
'Cause I know we're all the same
Oh yes we all seek out to satisfy those thrills

You know there aint no rest for the wicked
Money dont grow on trees
I got bills to pay
I got mouths to feed
There aint nothing in this world for free

I know I can't slow down
I can't hold back
Though you know I wish I could

Oh no there ain't no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good
