Don't Nobody Move (This is a Heist)

(Tony Powers)
Don't Nobody Move
(This is a Heist)

Well, I wuz in this
Police station
Bein' booked for
Garlic breath
In the corner was a cripple
They wuz kickin' him to death
From a cell somewhere I heard
This woman scream
"You're hurtin' me""
On the wall there wuz
This poster
"Holy name society"...
Oh --
I wuz in this courtroom
'Cause I had a fight
With my own wife
Law 'n order wuz so thick
You could cut it with a knife
While this landlord
Made a pay-off so they'd
De-control his slum
Hizzoner told
Some Puerto Rican
"In my court you don't
Chew gum"
Oh --
Don't nobody move
This is a heist
Don't nobody move
This is a heist
Well, she wuz standin' on the
Corner
When this dude asked her
The price
She said β€œme?" he said
"Take it --
Buy yourself somethin' nice"
Soon as he got off
'N while she still wuz
Squattin' on her heels
He produced
A pair of handcuffs
An' a very shiny shield.
Oh --
They wuz towin' me away
Cuz I don't have
Diplomat plates
While this diplomat I know
Is smugglin' "H"
Into the states
I said "lemmee have
The ticket 'n the car –
Save me a trip"
So they hauled me in
For giving them
Some Noo Yawk lefty lip
Oh –
Don't nobody move
This is a heist
Don't nobody move
This is a heist
I wuz underneath my dresser
Just in case of sneak attack
When this television
Quiz show called
To ask where I wuz at
I said "I'm underneath
My dresser --
An' they're
Poundin' on my door"
The audience went wild
'N the emcee said
"Would you like
To try for more?"
Yes--
Yes I would!
Well, I wuz drivin' down
The highway
An' I did not have the toll
So they gave me
The electric chair
(Cured my cold)
Well, I woke up feelin'
Hungry an' I asked for
Somethin' hot
So they gave me
The electric chair again
'N then they had me shot...
Oh --
