Dirty Deal - The Stooges

Met a creep who gets things done
He told me I'm the number one
He knew I was innocent
I knew he was f_cking bent
He embraced me like a friend
Showed me all his monuments
I was impressed, what the hell,
Where I come from ain't much to tell.

Stealing all the way I feel
As I signed the dirty deal.

System's rigged to favor crooks,
You don't find that in civic books
It's not cool to ask a man
To sign what he don't understand.
Guys found other guys were right
Contract's starting, then the night
And when truth is violent
They'll hand you on a chain link fence.

Once you're in there's no appeal
You signed the dirty deal.

Beware, beware!
Dirty, it's dirty.

Once you're in there's no appeal
You signed the dirty deal.

Beware, beware!

Listen!
Let the lame old story down people
I was a dummy, not a clown, people.
I'm getting hard to be around people.

Warning, warning, beware, beware!

Welcome to the real world
Where trouble loves a pretty girl
Your compound interest drifted, scum
Bite your blood into it runs
Simple people praise the lord
Smarter people steal and hoard
If I was the president
I couldn't change their evil plans.

Stealing all the way I feel
'Cause I signed the dirty deal.

Dirty, it's dirty,
It's dirty, it's dirty out there.

The way I feel is I signed the dirty deal
Beware, beware.
Dirty deal, dirty deal.
