Kid Creole & The Coconuts – Stool Pigeon lyrics

There's a gentleman that's going 'round
Turnin' the joint upside down, Stool Pigeon, ha tja tja tja
He's an old ex-con that's been away
Now he's back, no one's safe, Stool Pigeon, ha tja tja tja

“If you wanna squeal”, said the F. B. I.
“We can make a deal, make it worth your while”
So he told them all and in return
He got a credit card and a Thunderbird

And the maximum security
Even after plastic surgery
“So, go on and squeal”, said the F. B. I.
“We can make a deal, make it worth your while”

There's a gentleman that's going 'round
Turnin' the joint upside down, Stool Pigeon, ha tja tja tja
He's an old ex-con that's been away
Now he's back, no one's safe, Stool Pigeon, ha tja tja tja

After all the talk, then they wired him
And he took a walk with his crooked friends
And they joked about the good old days
And he recorded it on a reel of tape

He caught the mug who did the forgery
And the babe in charge of larceny
So the F. B. I., they rewarded him
'Cause they like a guy who will stab a friend

There's a gentleman that's going 'round
Turnin' the joint upside down, Stool Pigeon, ha tja tja tja
He's an old ex-con that's been away
Now he's back, no one's safe, Stool Pigeon, ha tja tja tja

There's a gentleman that's going 'round
Turnin' the joint upside down, Stool Pigeon, ha tja tja tja
He's an old ex-con that's been away
Now he's back, no one's safe, Stool Pigeon, ha tja tja tja

“If you wanna squeal”, said the F. B. I.
“We can make a deal, make it worth your while”
So he told them all and in return
He got a credit card and a Thunderbird

He got a spankin' new identity
And a condo' down in Miami
He bought a plane, a boat and jewelery
But he couldn't buy any company

There's a gentleman that's going 'round
Turnin' the joint upside-down, Stool Pigeon, ha tja tja tja
He's an old ex-con that's been away
Now he's back, no one's safe, Stool Pigeon, ha tja tja tja

There's a gentleman that's going 'round
Turnin' the joint upside-down, Stool Pigeon, ha tja tja tja
