Standing on the outside lookin' in
Standing on the outside lookin' in
Oh-oh, I never strayed outside the law
Standing on the outside lookin' in

Room full of money and the born to win
No amount of work's gonna get me through the door
When I go walkin' down Bluewater Bay
Surface in the city at the end of the day

Oh-oh, I got a bad case of the benz
Standing on the sidewalk you can see
Somebody everybody wants to be
They got the means to justify every end

I had a friend broke through illegally
Pulled a job on a small-town T.A.B.
Five grand down on her own piece of Eden

And I know . . .
And I know . . .

The first thing I do when I get into town
Is buy a twenty-two and cut the whole thing down
No amount of work's gonna buy my way to Freedom

I'm on the outside lookin' in
Standing on the outside lookin' in
Oh Yeah!
