The Clash Wrong 'em Boyo Lyrics

Last updated: 09/30/2013 01:18:54 PM

Stagger Lee met Billy and they got down to gambling
Stagger Lee throwed seven
Billy said that he throwed eight
So Billy said, hey Stagger! I'm gonna make my big attack
I'm gonna have to leave my knife in your back

Start all over again.

Why do you try to cheat?
And trample people under your feet
Don't you know it is wrong?
To cheat the trying man
Don't you know it is wrong?
To cheat the trying man
Well you better stop, it is the wrong 'em boyo!

You lie, steal, cheat and deceit
In such a small, small game
Don't you know it is wrong
To cheat the trying man
Don't you know it is wrong?
To cheat the trying man
You better stop, it is the wrong 'em boyo!

Billy Boy has been shot
And Stagger Lee's come out on top
Don't you know it is wrong
To cheat a trying man
Don't you know it is wrong
To cheat Stagger, man
You'd better stop
It is the wrong em' boyo!

And you must start all over again...all over again
Don't you know it is wrong?
Play it Billy, play
Don't you know it is wrong?
Well play it, Billy, play
You will find it is the right 'em boyo

But if you must lie and deceit
And trample people under your feet
Don't you know it is wrong?
To cheat a trying man
Don't you know it is wrong?
To cheat a Trying man
It is the wrong em' boyo

It is the wrong em' boyo
It is the wrong em' boyo
