The Lyrics

This better be funny, or else I shall be wearing cement overshoes.
I said, take it easy, baby, I worked all day
pumpin' guys all full of lead.
I got federal agents all buggin' my place
and a rival don's price on my head.

She said, Hey, Cosa Nostra baby
keep on workin'
'cause you ain't no Corleone.
She said, Go, Cosa Nostra baby
keep on dancin'
or I'm gonna leave you on your own.

Cosa Nostra.
Cosa Nostra.

I said, hey, hoochie mama, let's sit down
have a drink and dig the band.
She said, One more drink
you might end up in the clink.
You can't dance with the cuffs on your hands.

She said, Hey, Cosa Nostra baby
keep on workin'
'cause this ain't no time to drink.
She said, Go, Cosa Nostra baby
keep on dancin'
'cause you don't have strength to think.

Cosa Nostra.
Cosa Nostra.

(instrumental break)

I said, come on baby, it's hot in here
and the Feds might get their wish.
I got ten thousand dollars
gotta give that cash
or I'll be sleepin' wit da fish.

She said, Hey, Cosa Nostra baby
keep on workin'
that's an offer that you can't refuse.
She said, Go, Cosa Nostra baby
keep on dancin'
or you're gonna perp-walk on the news.

Cosa Nostra.
Cosa Nostra.

Cosa Nostra.
Cosa Nostra.
OK, which of you wiseguys put Gollum's head in my bed? And why is Royce telling me I should eat more oranges?
