Well we was downstairs at Jimmy's when it all hit the fan,
There was me and skinny Pete plus two of the Mulligan clan,
Benny blades was there too along with pretty boy Flint,
Oh and that red haired kid, you know, the one with the squint.

There was cards on the table and a boat-load of booze,
And I was packin' pocket bullets so I just couldn't lose,
But then a noise outside made ol' Jimmy hiss "Quiet!",
Then thirty seconds later we were dancing the riot.

The door busted open and the five-oh muscled in,
The kid tried to bolt but caught a billy on the chin,
'Course they were lookin' for Jimmy but that's when it got weird,
'Cause Jimmy was't there - it's like he'd just disappeared.

They asked us where he was at but, hell, we just didn't know,
And they couldn't find a trace although they searched high and low,
So they lined us all up and they shook us all down,
And then pretty boy and Benny got taken downtown.

They cut the rest of us loose and so me and Pete split,
We headed over to Ryan's Bar to chill for a bit,
Pete lit a smoke and said "D'ya think Jimmy did it?",
I said "I know that for sure, plus I know where he hid it",

So we doubled back round when the bars had all closed,
And under the juke box (just like I'd supposed),
Was a note in Jim's hand on a small scrap of paper,
"Right idea but too slow boys, I'll catch you all later!"
