The Lyrics

I was talkin to a friend of mine, said he fell and hurt his spine
said he called a lawyer told me so,
fired off a lawsuit, said "lets go"
and I said you better watch your step
or you're gonna get sued yourself
told me wasn't thinkin so,
and I told him don't you know,

don't sue them for that
don't sue them for that
cause they can't be liable
don't sue them for that

said hey buddy can't ya see? litigating's paying me
get to court and tell your lie
when you testify
all you worry bout's what you get
settle maybe will get you less
gotta let the tension mount, pad my bank account
don't sue them for that
don't sue them for that
cause they can't be liable
don't sue them for that

cause somewhere deep down inside,
you must be sayin
he didnt do that wrong
I got this feelin now, he will pay
I won't have to work more

said hey buddy can't ya see? litigating's paying me
get to court and tell your lie
when you testify
all you worry bout's what you get
settle maybe will get you less
gotta let the tension mount, pad my bank account
don't sue them for that
don't sue them for that
cause they can't be liable
