Stagger Lee met Billy and they got down to gambling
Stagger Lee threw a seven
Billy said that he threw an eight, yeah
So Billy said, hey Stagger! I'm gonna make my big attack
I'm gonna have to leave my knife in your back

Start all over again

Hey!

Why do you try to cheat
And trample people under your feet
Don't you know it is wrong
To cheat a trying man
Don't you know it is wrong
To cheat a trying man
You'd better stop
It is the wrong 'em boyo

You lie, steal, cheat and deceit
It's such a small, small game
Don't you know it is wrong
To cheat a trying man
Don't you know it is wrong
To cheat trying men
You'd better stop
It is the wrong 'em boyo

Hey, wanna ball

Billy Boy has been shot
And Stagger Lee's come out on top
Don't you know it is wrong
To cheat a trying man
Don't you know it is wrong
To cheat Stagger man
You'd better stop
Hey, it is the wrong 'em boyo

Yeah
Now you must start all over again - all over again
(Don't you know it is wrong)
Play it, Billy, play
(Don't you know it is wrong)
Well, play it, Billy, play
You will find
It is the right 'em boyo

But if you must lie and deceit
And trample people under your feet
(Don't you know it is wrong)
To cheat a trying man
(Don't you know it is wrong)
To cheat a trying man
You'd better stop
It is the wrong 'em boyo

Hey!
It is the wrong 'em boyo
It is the wrong 'em boyo
It is the wrong 'em boyo
It is the wrong 'em boyo
The wrong 'em boyo
