The people are much too poor
There ain't nothing they can do
They just try to endure
They want money and things that they can't afford
So I'm going to give them everything as they want it more
I'll be the Zoot Suit
I'll be a Zoot Suit

I wanna be a gangster
I can't take it anymore of that anger
Feel like knocking down the doors
Like a gangster
Take from rich, give to the poor
Like a gangster, like a gangster
Who wants to be a gangster?
I can't take it anymore of that anger
Feel like knocking down your doors
Like a gangster
Steal from rich, give to the poor
Like a gangster, like a gangster

I was born really well off
I didn't know it at the time
I had time to pursue my artistic interests
And in time
Yes there was some interest
Got my foot in the door
I took a look around
I didn't like what I had found
All these people so greedy
While these people so needy
I'm going to get at that cheddar
And spread it well, believe me
I'll be a Zoot Suit
I'll be a Zoot Suit

I wanna be a gangster
I can't take it anymore of that anger
Feel like knocking down the doors
Of the bankers
Take from rich, give to the poor
Like a gangster, like a gangster
I want to be a gangster
I can't take it anymore of that anger
Feel like knocking down the doors
Like a gangster
Take from rich, give to the poor
Like a gangster, like a gangster

Do you want to mess with me?
OK!

I wanna be a gangster
I can't take it anymore of that anger
Feel like knocking down the doors
Of the bankers
Take from rich, give to the poor
Like a gangster, like a gangster
Like a gangster, like a gangster
