Composers: Clive Alphanso
Lyricists: Clive Alphanso


Stagger Lee met Billy and they go down to gambling
Stagger Lee throwed seven
Billy said that he throwed 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 it all over again

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

You lie, steal, cheat and deceit
In such a small, small game
Don't you know it is wrong
To cheat a trying man
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
So 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
And 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
