Toots & The Maytals – 54-46 Was My Number lyrics

Stick it up, mister
Hear what I say, sir, yeah
Get your hands in the air, sir
And you will get no hurt, mister, no no no

I said, "Yeah"
(I said, "Yeah")
What did I say?
(What did I say?)

Don't you hear? I said, "Yeah"
(Yeah yeah)
Listen to what I say
(Listen to what I say)

Do you believe
I would take something with me
And give it to the policeman?
I wouldn't do that

And if I do that, I would say
"Sir, I want to put the charge on me"
I wouldn't do that
You know, I wouldn't do that

I'm not a fool to hurt myself
So I was innocent of what they done to me
They was wrong
Listen to me one more time, they were wrong

Give it to me one time
Give it to me two time
Give it to me three time
Give it to me four time

54-46, was my number
Right now, someone else has that number
One more time, 54-46, was my number, was my number
Right now, someone else has that number

I said, "Yeah"
(I said, "Yeah")
Listen, what they say?
(Listen, what they say?)

I said, "Help me now"
(Yeah, yeah)
Listen to what they say
(Listen to what they say)

Give it to me one time
Give it to me two time
Give me, give me, give me
No, no, no, no

54-46, was my number
Right now, someone else has that number
