Ain't No Rest for the Wicked (Original Version) (original version) - Cage The Elephant

I was walkin' down the street

When out the corner of my eye

I saw a pretty little thing approaching me

She said I never seen a man

Who looked so all alone

Could you use a little company

And if you pay the right price

Your evening sill be nice

You can go and send me on my way

I said you're such a sweet young thing

Why you do this to yourself

She looked at me and this is what 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

Ain't nothing in this world for free

I know can't slow down

I can't hold back

Though you know I wish I could

No there ain't no rest for the wicked

Until you close our eyes for good

Not even 15 minutes later

I'm still walkin' down the street

When 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 lookin' for a fight

He said give me all you got

I want your money not your life

But if you try to make amove I won't thind twice

I told him you can have my cash

But first you know I gotta ask

What made you want to live this kind of life

He said there aint no rest for the wicked

 

Money don't grow on trees

I got bills to pay

I got mouths to feed

Ain't nothing in this world for free

I know can't slow down

I can't hold back

Though you know I wish I could

No there ain't no rest for the wicked

Until you close our eyes for good

 

Well now a couple hours past

And I was sitting in my house

The day was winding down and comming to an end

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

He'd taken money from the church

He'd stuff his bank account with righteous dollar bills

But even still I can't say much

Because I know we're all the same

Oh yes we all seed out to satisfy those thrills

You know there aint no rest for the wicked

 

Money don't grow on trees

We got bills to pay

We got mouths to feed

Ain't nothing in this world for free

We can't slow down

We can't hold back

Though you know we wish we could

No there ain't no rest for the wicked

Until you close our eyes for good
