Lyrics
Rhythm heritage - Baretta's theme
Don't go to bed with no price on your head,
Don't do it.
Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

Keep your eye on the sparrow,
When the going gets narrow.

Don't roll the dice if you can't pay the price,
Don't do it.
Don't run your feet down a dead-end street.

Keep your eye on the sparrow,
When the going gets narrow.

Don't do me dirt or you're gonna get hurt
Don't do it.
Don't run away till you hear what I say.

Keep your eye on the sparrow,
When the going gets narrow.

Ain't gonna fight with no thief in the night
Won't do it.
I'm gonna go where the cold wind don't blow.

Keep your eye on the sparrow,
When the going gets narrow.
