The Heat Merchant

Permanent frown, spark in the eye
Nabbed a truck full of pills, now we’re flying high
Merchant’s rushed for the door, bolt that lock or we’ll be poor
Here comes the Heat Merchant, Wild Bill’s his name
Gotta use the present tense, just don’t seem the same

Gonna need a lookout, he’s on the move again,
Something will go missing, it’s just a matter of when
Orphan kleptomaniac, regular at the track
Tried to bet the board, would of hit if Willy Joe scored
Let’s right the crime, it’s betting time

Sledgehammer jab, gift of gab, set a sucker right
There might be a little heat tonight

Oh sweet William, stadium lights yet to dim
Got time to make the blow-off, take a corner and work the slim
Sticky situation he won’t let it slide, put away the skirt, break out the rhino hide
Bing bonged, turned around everything is jacked
Don’t matter nothing, Bill’s got my back

Box full of hype, tires bald, no time to freak, 400 down
Wild life not for the meek
