lyrics

Justified

he had done the smart thing
so what debt should he pay
he adored his son and heir
those bad scores in the way

so he spent six figures
no incidental drop
all the best folks rolled like that
their kids must stay on top

he thinks he was justified
they’ll need a forceful nudge
he’ll say all the right stuff
and try to grease the judge

when the fbi burst in
guns drawn at 4 am
he was stunned and angry
why would they pick on him

now they’re talking jail time
and his good name’s all gone
he claims they want scapegoats
he’s just a wealthy pawn

chorus

he can’t quite believe it
an outrage and a sham
they let slide real criminals
can’t they see who i am

he drinks with the winners
he’s big and tan and white
they see their world slipping down
and now it’s time to fight

he thinks he was justified
they’ll need a forceful nudge
he’ll say all the right stuff
and try to grease the judge
