System of our social ills
You’re using crime to pay your bills
Shifty as a politician
Illegal profit is your mission
I’ve known you since we both were ten
But you were only small fry then
Once I laughed you off as funny
But now I'm broke I need fast money

My dodgy mate – he put me up to this
He had a lot of cash he knew I couldn’t resist
And now my dodgy mate is gonna put me into jail

There’s nothing new, there’s no surprises
In your range of enterprises
You’ve got your brains, you’ve got your muscle
Working on your next big hustle
I talked my way in on a job
Some old guys place we’re gonna rob
But we’ll need more assistance
To get the dough without resistance

[I was once warned of criminal behaviour]
[Go too far and there’s no on who can save ya]

My dodgy mate – he put me up to this
He had a lot of cash he knew I couldn’t resist
And now my dodgy mate is gonna put me into jail

Your mates have rocked up from Traralgon
In their rusty XA Falcon
Stopped by the cops the car is rusted
A routine check ‘oh shit we’re busted’
I never made cent from crime
But now I'm locked up doin’ time
You did your job you should have waited
You and your mates incarcerated

[You have the right to remain silent]
[Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law]

My dodgy mate – he put me up to this
He had a lot of cash he knew I couldn’t resist
And now my dodgy mate is gonna put me into jail [x2]
