Well I was walking down the street when out the corner of my eye
I saw a pretty little thing approaching me
She said I've never seen a man who looks so all alone
Well, could you use a little company?

Well If you pay the right price, your evening could be nice
Or you can go and send me on my way
I said you're such a sweet young thing, oh, why you do this to yourself?
She looked at me and this is what she said

She said there ain't no rest for the wicked
Money don't grow on trees
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
There ain't nothing in this world for free

No, I can't slow down, I can't hold back
Though you know I wish I could
No, cause there ain't no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good

Fifteen minutes later after walking down the street
I saw the shadow of a man creep out of sight
And then he swept up from behind, he put a gun up to my head
He made it clear he wasn't looking for a fight

He said give me all you've got, I want your money, not your life
But If you try to make a move I won't think twice
I told him you can have my cash but know you know I've got to ask
What made you want to live this kind of life?

He said there ain't no rest for the wicked
Money don't grow on trees
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
But ain't nothing in this world for free

No, I can't slow down, I can't hold back
Though you know I wish I could
You know there ain't no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good

Well now a couple of hours pass and I was sitting in my house
The day was winding down and coming to an end
And so I turned on the TV and flipped it over to the news
And what I saw I almost couldn't comprehend

I saw a preacher man in cuffs taking money from the church
He had a bank account with righteous dollar bills
But even still I can't say much cause I know we're all the same
Oh yeah, we all seek out to satisfy those thrills

You know there ain't no rest for the wicked
Money don't grow on trees
I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
And there ain't nothing in this world for free

No, I can't slow down, I can't hold back
Though you know I wish we could
You know there ain't no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good

You know there ain't no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good
For good
