He split the racket, to operate on his own
He's a Robin Hood of a new century

Profits from both sides of the law
If you're clever you can beat them all
Sister, tell your mister, to hold on to his change
Bandits, he's the bandits, settin' up a frame

Blueprintin' through the secret files
When he gets through with you
There's just one thing left to do
One money hungry night

Leavin' his lies, spreadin' doubts all about
Profits from both sides of the law
I feel sympathy for his philosophy
Sister, tell your mister, to hold on to his change

Sister, tell your mister, to hold onto his brains
Somebody's in for a big surprise
Your wrongs are gonna be his rights
'Cause he'll take it away

He'll be foolin' us all if we don't watch out
He's the devil's son, he's the devil's son
Sometimes I think I'm gonna study that game
Just one thing's botherin' me

I'm glad we're all still alive, goodbye now
He's the devil, son
