Lawyers, Guns and Money

Well, I went home with the waitress
You know—the way I always do
Well, how was I to know, yeah
She was with the Russians too

Now I’m gambling in Havana
You know I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Daddy, won’t you get me out of this?

I’m an innocent bystander
Oh but somehow I got stuck
Between a rock and a hard place
And I’m down on my luck
Oh yeah, I’m down on my luck
Oh yeah, I’m down on my luck
Oh baby, I’m down on my luck
I’m so far down I don’t think I’ll ever get up
Hmm, yeah

If it weren’t for bad luck
Oh, if it weren’t for real bad luck
I would have no luck at all, yeah....
Get it on....

Now I’m stranded in Honduras
I’m a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
The shit has hit the fan

Send lawyers, guns and money, whoo
Send lawyers, guns and money, whoo, whoo, whoo, whoo
Come on....

Get me out of this
Send lawyers, guns and money
You know the shit has hit the fan.......

[ "Lawyers, Guns and Money" was first recorded by Warren Zevon on his 1978 album "Excitable Boy" ]
