Lyrics

Last Successful Heist

Written By: Jim Layeux

Tired of living on handouts, had a little girl on the way,
robbed a bank and took the money, made my getaway,
bought a little secondhand bungalow with a yard for the kid to play,
Her mom never asked no questions, afraid of what I'd say,

CHO)
Tell my little angel that one day I'm coming home,
do you think that she'll remember,
now that she's grown
(now I'm growin' old - last chorus)

Rob a bank when it's mornin' and get far away by noon,
lay low and stash the money, deep in the woods,
A bag of plain disguises, work alone and take home more,
always used to like surprises 'till the law came to my door.

Repeat Chorus

Never killed anybody, never even fired a gun
Sittin' in the Kingston pen, ten years and I'll be out,
Charged with double robbery, they got back almost every dime,
never knowin' I stashed a million from the last successful heist,

Repeat Chorus and end.

Tired of living on handouts, had a little girl on the way,
robbed a bank and took the money, made my getaway,
bought a little second hand bungalow with a yard for the kid to play,
her mother never asked no questions, afraid of what I'd say,

do you think that she'll remember now that she's grown
