I was walking down the street when out the corner of my eye
I saw a pretty little thing approaching me
She said I never seen a man, who looks so all alone
Could you use a little company?
If you pay the right price, your evening will be nice
Or you can go and send me on my way
I said your such a sweet young thing
Why'd you do this to yourself?
She looked at me and this is what she said

There ain't no rest for the wicked
Money don't grow on trees
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
There ain't nothing in this world for free
I know I can't slow down
