    Uncle Ricky, will you read us a bedtime story?
    Please, huh, please?
    Allright, you kids get to bed, I'll get the storybook.
    Ya'll Tucked in?
    Here we go...
    Once upon a time,
    Not long ago,
    Where people wore pajamas and lived life slow,
    Where laws where stern and justice stood,
    And people were behavin' like they ought to - good,
    There lived a little boy who was misslead
    By another little boy,
    And this is what he said:
    "Me and you tike, we're gonna make some cash",
    "Robbin' old folks and makin' the dash",
    They did the job,
    Money came with ease,
    But one couldn't stop!
    It's like he had a disease,
    He robbed another and another,
    And a sister and a brother,
    Tried to rob a man who was a D.T. undercover,
    The cop grabed his arm,
    He started actin' eratic,
    He said:
    "Keep still boy, no need for static",
    Punched him in his belly and gave him a slap,
    But little did he know,
    The little boy was strapped,
    The kid pulled outta gun,
    He said:
    "Why'd you hit me?"
    The barrell was set straight for the cop's kidney,
    The cop got scared,
    The kid, he starts to figure:
    "I'll do years if I pull this trigger",
    So he cold dashed,
    And ran around the block,
    Cop radios in to another ladie cop,
    He ran by a tree,
    There he saw the sister,
    Shot for the head,
    He shot back but he missed her,
    Looked 'round good,
    And from excpectations,
    He decided he'd head for the subway stations,
    She was comming and he made a left,
    He was running top speed,
    Till he was out of breath,
    Knocked and old man down,
    And swore he killed him,
    Then he made his move to an abandonded building,
    Ran up the stairs up to the top floor,
    Opened up a door,
    There guess who he saw?
    Dave! The dope fiend shootin' dope,
    Who don't know the meaning of water nor soap,
    He said:
    "I need bullets, hurry up, run!",
    The dope fiend rolled back a spankin' shot gun!
    He went outside but there were cops all over,
    THen he dipped into a car;
    A stolen nova,
    Raced up the block doin' 83,
    Crashed into a tree,
    Near the university
    Escaped alive although the car was battered
    Rat-a-tat tatted and all the cops scattered

    Ran out of bullets
    And he still had static
    Grabbed the pregnant lady
    And pulled out the automatic

    Pointed at her head
    He said the gun was full of lead
    He told the cops
    "Back off, or honey here's dead"

    Deep in his heart
    He knew he was wrong
    So he let the lady go
    And he starts to run on

    Sirens sounded
    And he seemed astounded
    And, before long
    The little boy got surrounded

    He dropped the gun
    And so went the glory
    And this is the way
    I have to end this story

    He was only ("what?") seventeen
    In a madman's dream
    The cop shot the kid
    I still hear him scream

    This ain't funny
    So don't you dare laugh
    Just another case
    About the wrong path

    Straight and narrow
    While your soul gets cast
