    Lyrics

    Don't do the crime,
    If you can't do the time
    It's said that it just don't pay.
    But what good's working hard
    When all they give you is your cards
    And you know there's not much you can say.

    So you take what they give
    You've no money to live
    And your family don't understand.
    After all these years
    They will end up in tears
    With a mountain of bills in their hands.

    (chorus)

    Now your lesson is learned
    There's nowhere to turn
    And it's no use pleading for help.
    When you're left on the heap
    When you're left on the heap
    There is nothing to keep you
    From going and helping yourself
    From going and helping yourself.

    The dilemma you've found
    Is you're morally bound
    Now your morally bound
    Now your moral code needs a review
    So what do you care
    You know life isn't fair
    And for years they've been stealing from you.
