I knew I shouldn't have left the apartment
I knew I should've stayed in watching TV
If I'd looked at the moon and looked at my stars
I wouldn't be in this mess I'm in right now

I should've known when my car would not get started
It should've clicked when indecision read its question mark
If I'd ran back for the phone but instead I let it ring
I wouldn't be in this mess I'm in right now

Everybody hold still
Nobody gets hurt

I could've left all my cash and talent a credit card
I should've said, "Don't wear no jewelery you're looking fine"
If I'd ran back for the phone but instead I let it ring
I wouldn't be in this miss I'm in right now

Everybody hold still
Nobody gets hurt

Please don't take all of my money mister
Don't take my money all money, money

Everybody hold still
Nobody gets hurt
