I was walking down the street when out the corner of my eye
She said I never seen a man, who looks so all alone
If you pay the right price, your evening will be nice
I said your such a sweet young thing
She looked at me and this is what she said
There ain't no rest for the wicked
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
I know I can't slow down
No there ain't no rest for the wicked

When I saw the shadow of a man creep out of sight
He made it clear he wasn't looking for a fight
I want your money not your life
I told him you can have my cash
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 know I can't slow down
Until we close our eyes for good
Now a couple hours past, and I was sitting in my house
So I turned on the TV
And what I saw I almost couldn't comprehend
He stuffed his bank account with righteous dollar bills
Oh yes we all seek out to satisfy those thrills
You know there ain't no rest for the wicked
We got bills to pay we got mouths to feed ain't nothing in this world for free
You know there ain't no rest for the wicked, until we close our eyes for good
