The Lyrics

Rob me now, homie, cause here I am
Pull that shiv, tell me up with hands
Danger is lurking when it’s after dark
Why’d I go jogging in Central Park?

What a mark, guess they got me good
Gave my cash to a low-life hood
Where’s a cop when you need cover?
You can’t find one now
Can’t find one now, can’t find one now

Because the night belongs to muggers
Because the night belongs to crime
Because the night belongs to robbers
Because the night is stick-up time

Don’t be out when you’re alone
Have a big gun, and nerves of stone
Here comes a felon, disguised as fawn
You might get dead, or worse, your money gone

My credit card, gone in the last theft
They charged it all, and there’s nothing left
Lost my watch, poor old Mickey Mouse
They got everything,
Got everything, got everything

Because the night belongs to muggers
Because the night belongs to crime
Because the night belongs to robbers
Because the night is stick-up time

The hoods don’t sleep
They’re out, the vicious jackals
Scum and bum
Without you they cannot live
Next time, I’m packin’ whackin’
I’m so sick of crime, just shoot to kill
So plug ‘em now, plug ‘em now, plug ‘em now

Because the night belongs to muggers
Because the night belongs to crime
Because the night belongs to robbers
Because the night is stick-up time
Because tonight there are two muggers
If we believe a gun fight will bust
Because tonight there are two muggers
