A double secret agent
And he was paid to kill
With cold steel magnum force is how the man possessed the skill
He shot a man in Paris
He did a job in L.A.
And if the price was right, he'd surely
Take your life away

[Chorus:]
Wanted, dead or alive, blood for money, money
***ault, homicide, blood for
Money, money, money, money
Wanted

He drove a Maserati, lived up in the hills
A cat with nine lives that's gone
Too far to feel the chill
He never though it'd happen
It was his last mistake
Cause he was gunned down by a
Heartless woman's thirty eight.

[Chorus]
