Inspired by the film "Quick Change":



Thought I had it under control
Committed the perfect crime
Did it all with a smile
Took them for every dime
The police are clueless
And I'm ahead of every move
Got the money, the girl
I thought I couldn't lose

Burning rubber in the getaway car
Still running out of time
Need to catch a plane
But they've closed I-95

Now we've taken a wrong turn
Landed in the wrong side of town
Caught in the crossfire
Bullets raining down
Had to ditch the ride
But we still have the cash
Hail a taxi
We need to get out of here fast

Burning rubber in yellow and black
Still running out of time
Need to catch a plane
But the driver is out of his mind
Now the cops are back in play
And the mob wants a cut
We've got all this money
But we still have to take the bus
It seemed like a flawless plan
But luck isn't on our side
Just getting across the city
Feels like spanning the great divide

Burning rubber on the crosstown express
Still running out of time
Need to catch a plane
So much for the perfect crime
