Lyrics: I was walkGing down the street, When out the coBrner of my eye I saw a prCetty little thing apBproachinFg me. She said "I've nGever seen a man Who loBoks so all alone, Could you usCe a little BcompanFy? If you pGay the right price Your evBening will be nice, And you can Cgo and send me on Bmy way.F" I said "You're suGch a sweet young thing Why you Bdo this to yourself?" She loCoked at me and tBhis is what she saFid, "GOh, there ain't no rest for the wiBckeCd,F MGoney don't grow on BtreCesF. I gGot bills to pay, I got mBoutChsF to feed, There ain't nGothing in this world forB frCeeF. I know I Gcan't slow down, I cBan'Ct Fhold back, Though you kGnow, I wish I couldB. C F No there aGin't no rest for the wiBckeCd,F Until we Gclose our eyes for goBod"C. F Not even fifteen minutes later I'm still walking down the street, When I saw a shadow of a man creep out of sight. Then he walks up from behind And puts a gun up to my head, He made it clear he wasn't looking for a fight. He said "Give me all you've got I want your money not your life, But if you try to make a move I won't think twice." I said "You can have my cash But first you know I got to ask What made you want to live this kind of life?" He said "There ain't no rest for the wicked, Money don't grow on trees. I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed, There ain't nothing in this world for free. I know I can't slow down, I can't hold back, Though you know, I wish I could. No there ain't no rest for the wicked, Until we close our eyes for good". Now a couple hours passed And I was sitting at my house, The day was winding down and coming to an end. So I turned on the TV And flipped it over to the news, And what I saw I almost couldn't comprehend. I saw a preacher man in cuffs he'd taken money from the church, He's got this bank account with righteous dollar bills. But even still I can't say much Because I know we're all the same, Oh yes we've all got to satisfy those thrills. "Oh, there ain't no rest for the wicked, Money don't grow on trees. We got bills to pay, We got mouths to feed, There ain't nothing in this world for free. I know we can't slow down, We can't hold back, Though you know, we wish we could. No there ain't no rest for the wicked, Until we close our eyes for good"
