Bernie Rhodes knows, don't argue

Why must you record my phone calls?
Are you planning a bootleg LP?
You said, you've been threatened by gangsters
Now it's you, that's threatening me

Can't fight corruption with con tricks
They use the law to commit crime
And I dread, dread to think what the future will bring
When we're living in gangster time

Don't call me scarface

Don't interrupt while I'm talking
Or they'll confiscate all your guitars
And catch 22 says if I sing the truth
They won't make me an overnight star

Don't offer us legal protection
They use the law to commit crime
I dread to think what the future will bring
When we're living in real gangster time

Bernie Rhodes knows, don't argue
