Now, my friend Bill
Was just a working lad
And he liked to have his fun
He'd like to find a girl
And get comfortable
When his working day was done

He would spend
All his money on a Friday night
Wake up in the morning broke
But he had a run in
With little Lucy then
Believe me, that ain't no joke

(CHORUS)
Watch out for Lucy
Though she may look frail
Say excuse me, Lucy
Darling, don't you use me
I don't want to land in jail

She started out working in a cafe
Picking money up on the side
She was free and easy
Everybody's friend
But she couldn't be satisfied

So, now in walks Bill
With his cash in his hand
His heart upon his sleeve
We tried to warn him about her ways
We never did succeed

(CHORUS)

Well, the trap was
Sprung for poor old Bill
You should have
Heard little Lucy sing
I want a Cadillac car
A beautiful home
And a thousand dollar ring

They found our hero in the gutter
With a diamond ring and a gun
He'd done it for the love of Lucy
And ended up on the run

(CHORUS) 2X
