The Lyrics

------ DRUM LEAD OFF------

------ GUITAR INTRO ------

He's just the one who brings it your face in the dirt
Petey's got all his people
Tributes bringing them to me,
And now I'm dabbling; They fear me - little turds.

Luggage carrier brokers
Never ask it, qui? [1]
And if you want to spin some change
Don't blow off my crew
And if your the only other person who knows? Ain't healthy!
I'm just a gangster in a MAFIA clan.

Ten thousand dollars, you'll be gone from this world
Don't make you smartest
Your wise-guy degree.
A thousand styles makes dead a thousand ways.

So look out when your driving
And Luco wants to pee
It just might mean this world of yours
To turn upon you.
Then Luc' Brazzi says leave the piece, Lou,
Grab cannolis.
I'm just a gangster in a MAFIA clan.

Life in the under-land,
Trials fade to penal for some people
Who were only employing themselves.
And then they got to fight in
Prison but you're tight in with
People who are torching per-verts.
No ones torching my berth.

Need first responder - get in my face, won't be worth
Beating 'til plenty feeble.
As you're trying now to flee
As you're unraveling your reel from many hurts.

Engage your face is broken
Now comes the turn-key
With your face so re-arranged
The blows are now through.
And now the only other person to go's, Doc Welby. [2]

Hung like a hampster at a whack a mole stand. [3]

------ GUITAR RIFF ------

I'm just a gangster in a MAFIA clan.

------ SHORT RIFF ------

Gang-cage barriers open
Unlock cell with key
I told the parole men I'd change.
Now blow on out through
Now off to Tony's off this prison I go, still healthy.

------ GUITAR RIFF ------

Not any mobster for this MAFIA clan

------ SHORT RIFF ------

I'm just top gangster of this MAFIA clan.
Back in the under-land
Quiet Tony Needles; in a deep hole
Who's not only employing himself.
'Cause when you see him freightin'
Poison who is freightin' to some
People who's not paying what's worth.
Put 'em poured in the earth.

Wary be the traveller crossing my world
Weeding out any feeble pinchin' the squeeze
We'll put a stinger in your schlock dirt hole can.
We're just some gangsters in a syndicate clan
It's just my business; I'm a business world man...

I'm just a gangster in a MAFIA clan.
I'm just a gangster in a MAFIA clan.
