Jamie T – Robin Hood lyrics
Ah-ah
Ah-ah

Riding in the back seat
Rolling through the neighborhood
Brought up in the back streets
Wouldn't change if he could
It's bad in the factory
Or the shopping mall where you work
Johnny doesn't actually
Had to load the gun to make him work

And all the boys tell Johnny
They wanna be dealers and thugs
But Johnny knows that it ain't no good
When the teacher asked him
"Who would you be if you could?"
"I wanna be like Robin Hood
Robin Hood"

Riding from the alley
To the Halifax where she works
Gotta love Sally
She didn't flinch when he burst
In through the doorway
With a sawn-off under his shirt
She knew in the worst way
That he was the man for her

And all the boys tell Johnny
They wanna be rappers and thugs
But Johnny knows that it ain't no good
When the teacher asked him
"Who would you be if you could?"
Said "I'd be like Robin Hood"

And I'll steal from the rich
I'll give to the poor
I'll stop the police from
Knocking down the door
I steal it all
Then I'll steal more
And I'll never end up
Behind the Jail Guitar Doors

And to this day
As an actual fact
In the best way
They've still got each other's backs
15 years
2 heart attacks
2 children

Sally's mother always asks her
"What is it about Johnny
What is it about Johnny that makes you bother?"
She says
"There's a few things that are true
In this life of wonder
Everybody hates the law
And everyone loves a bank
Robber, robber, robber
Robber, robber, robber!"

Loves a bank robber, robber, robber
Robber, robber!"
Loves a bank robber, robber, robber
Robber, robber!"
Loves a bank robber, robber, robber
Robber, robber!"
Loves a bank robber, robber, robber
Robber, robber!"
Loves a bank robber, robber, robber
Robber, robber!"
Loves a bank robber, robber, robber
Robber, robber!"
Loves a bank robber, robber, robber
Robber, robber!"

Loves a bank robber

And all the boys tell Johnny
They wanna be rappers and thugs
But Johnny knows that it ain't no good
When the teacher asked him
"Who would you be if you could?"
Said "I'd be like Robin Hood"
