(Bernie Rhodes knows. Don't argue!)

Why must you record my phone calls?
Are you planning a bootleg LP?

Said you'd 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

I dread to think what the future'll bring
When we’re living in gangster times

(Don't call me Scarface!)

Don't interrupt while I'm talking
Or they'll confiscate all your guitars

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'll bring
When we're living in real gangster times

(Bernie Rhodes knows. Don't argue!)
