I stopped to fill my car up
I didn't know where I was going
A five and a pocket full of silver
And then it started to piss down
And then I looked up
A man round forty in the back seat
So why's he sat there just waiting
He had a bag full of money
I didn't know where I was going
And still I look up
Curiosity is over
He pulled a gun from his jacket
It gives me so much satisfaction
Well I just made up this story
I never looked up or looked
