[ Waylon & Willie ]
Welcome to the years 2002 minus 25 oh say can you smell her for the smoke
God's till up there laughin' so she's gotta be alive
Who says he can't take a dirty joke
Power is as power does and power slips away it's so easy to abuse
Who'd've thought them Arabs would've bought the USA just to give it to the Jews
Singin' crime still don't pay just like it used to
And you know that time slips away till you die
Well I don't give a damn when I choose to no it don't hurt so bad when you're high
Oh say does the future of the homesick and the brave even matter anymore
There ain't no more reason for them boys to run away than there was to fight before
Would you tell me why the hell we'd try to win back in a war
What we wasted in the last
Might just ain't as righteous as it used to be before when your army's out of gas
Singin' crime still don't pay...
Singin' crime still don't pay...
