The shoe-shine was cool
He'd sussed out the scene
Scratch was nobody's fool
He'd always come clean

If this was a frame-up
Who built the frame?
Was this the big pay-off
Or some crapulous game

I know you think I'm going thru' it
But babe don't weep
I didn't do it
The light was dim, I never knew it's a sin
To drink cold tea

That pig he was rough
Trailed us right round the block
Enid stashed all her stuff
Behind the grandfather clock
If this was the show-down
Who wrote the show?
Was he the big con-man
Or some cadaverous crow

I know you think I'm going thru' it
But babe don't weep
I didn't do it
The light was dim, I never knew it's a sin
To drink cold tea
