"Old Gangsters Never Die" as written by and Rick Springfield....
Who did you think you were?
Who did you think you were fooling?
You've been seeing too many movies
Where the bad guys were the heroes
Everything started fine and it looked like the seeds were sown
'Till you took up an evil stance and you came on
Just like Al Capone
I had to leave or I'd have gone insane
Now I hear they say you've changed but...

Old gangsters never die
Old gangsters never die
Don't you ever wonder why

You had me when I was green
It made me feel so dependent
It satisfied your paranoia to think I really needed you
Who did you think I was?
Did you think that I'd let it ride?
Put down that violin case, I know just what you're trying to hide
I've got to leave; you chill me to the marrow
There's just no way you're on the straight and narrow because...

Old gangsters never die
Old gangsters never die
Don't you ever wonder why

And when I finally climbed down off your shelf
You blamed everyone except yourself

Old gangsters never die
Old gangsters never die
They just fade into the night
Oh, bye-bye
