Slade – Dead Men Tell No Tales lyrics

On the day we pulled the bank job
Mugsy Baker he stopped some lead
He don't always pack the hardware but
We sure did need some bread

Everything was running smoothly
All the folks were cool and calm
Till some smartass he came the hero
And then he sounded the alarm

Chorus
Dead men don't tell no tales no deceit no betrayals
Their only time time time Is fading away
Dead men don't tell no lies they don't need no alibi's
Their only time time time is wasting away

Soon the building was surrounded
Not a chance to make a break
We was trapped the cops were closin' in
Them bullets were no fake

As the good guy he lay there bleedin'
Me the bad guy I started to retch
Then old Mugsy he caught a ricochet
We were heading for a stretch

Chorus
Dead men don't tell no tales no deceit no betrayals
Their only time time time Is fading away
Dead men don't tell no lies they don't need no alibi's
Their only time time time is wasting away

Break

In the holdup there was Mugsy
Me and Benjamin the bear
Mugs would rather go down fightin' just
To save him from the chair

Chorus
Dead men don't tell no tales no deceit no betrayals
Their only time time time Is fading away
Dead men they don't tell no lies they don't need no alibi's
Their only time time time is wasting away
