I swore that I'd get even
I swore I'd get it back
Lost out on that money game, slipped right through the crack
Oh, the little fuck who stung me
He's not answering my calls
Love to get a million bucks and nail 'em to his balls

It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
You're playing with money, baby, you gonna need...
It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
This one's going down, down in history

Well, the front door it was rusty
The accountant gone to smack
Hired help on holiday and never coming back
Filipina girl sat still there
Attending a reception
Spoke not a word of English as she dealt me the deception

It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
You're playing with knives, baby, you gonna bleed...
It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
This one's going down, down in history

I guess things got a little outta hand
You know the fine print said that I can
You got those, got those contracts in your pocket for ease
You wanna get me some tooth for teeth

Well, I made some calculations
Saw that I was in the black
Red was creeping up like some distant heart attack
In the photograph we are smiling
As we shake our little pact
They say when things don't swing your way, take a different tact

It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
You're playing with money, baby, you gonna need...
It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
This one's going down, down in history

Well I tracked him down to Singapore
To the bar of a hotel
Sippin' margaritas as I readied him for hell
They say blood was thicker than water
By the river late that day
We got closure on our little deal, in a business kinda way

It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
You're playing with knives, babe, you gonna bleed...
It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
This one's going down, down in history

I guess things got a little outta hand
You know the frint print said that I can
You got those, got those contacts in your pocket for ease
You wanna get me some tooth for teeth

It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
It's a nasty business, it's a nasty business
