Bankrobber by The Clash

My daddy was a bank robber
But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to (1)________ that way
And he loved to steal your money
Some is rich and some is poor
And that's the way the world is
And I don't (2)______________ in lying back
Saying how bad your life is
So we came to (3)________ it up
Never loved a shovel
Break your back to earn your pay
Don't forget to grovel
Daddy was a bank robber
But he (4)__________ hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way
And he loved to take your money
What law?

The old man spoke up in a bar
Said, "I've never been in prison
A lifetime serving one machine
Is ten times worse than prison"
Imagine if all the boys in jail
Could get out now together
What do you think they wanna say to us
While we were being clever
Someday you'll meet (5)________ rockin' chair
'Cause that's where we're spinnin'
There's no (6)__________ to want to comb your hair
When it's gray and thinin'
Hey

Hey
Daddy was a bank robber
But he never (7)________ nobody
He just loved to (8)________ that way
And he loved to steal (9)________ money
So we came to jazz it up
We never loved a shovel
Break your back to earn your pay
And don't forget to grovel
Hey

Get away, get away
Get away, get away
Get away, get away
Get away

Daddy was a bank robber
But he never hurt nobody
He just loved to live that way
And he loved to steal your money
Hey
Run, rabbit, run

Strike out boy
For the hills
I can't find that hole in the wall
I know that they never will
Daddy was a (10)________ robber
But he never hurt nobody...
