was it the right time
I hope you know how much you enjoy them
hey, how about that
well, more and more people know all about it
Do you remember that song by a dude named Bobby Fuller
I fought the law and the law won

trying to find the right word
you people like that
how about that
if there was some money in it for them
Hey, you remember that song about this guy from Texas
I'll sing it for you, it went like this:
I fought the law and the law won
You're just dirt
That's the only word that -
- hurt, You're just dirt
You know they call it -
you're just - cheap, cheap, cheap, cheap, uptown dirt
That's all you're worth - It's just - cheap, cheap, uptown dirt
You're just dirt (cheap, cheap, cheap, cheap uptown dirt)
(Cheap, cheap, cheap, cheap, uptown dirt)
