Assault & Battery Lyrics

Assault & Battery by Remedy  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Assault & Battery (Anderson/Cocks)
The charge was assault & battery
The judge said there'd be no bail
The charge was assault & battery
They dragged me off to jail

I did no crime she was no friend of mine
Vengeance and justice went hand in hand
But there's a law for the rich, and a law for the poor
And I'm just a workin' man, I'm just a workin' man

They took no notice of her tears
But they were gettin' drunk on her fear
I arrived in time to spare her fate
That little girl would feel no shame

I did no crime she was no friend of mine
Vengeance and justice went hand in hand
There's a law for the rich, and a law for the poor
I'm just a workin' man, I'm just a workin' man

The charge was assault & battery
The judge said there'd be no bail
The charge was assault & battery
And they dragged me off to jail
They turned on me mad, crazy and mean
I stole 'em the cake, they were gonna cream
They leapt on me like a pack of dogs
Pullin' me down, they wanted me flogged

Punchin' and fightin' I got to my feet
Determined to leave their blood on the street
If I went down now they'd kick me to death
That sweet little girl would be left a wreck

I did no crime she was no friend of mine
Vengeance and justice went hand in hand
There's a law for the rich, and a law for the poor
I've been a workin' man, I've always been a workin' man

Their waitin' on me when I got out
And they stabbed me full of holes
It's now a case of kill or be killed
Unwritten jungle law

I did no crime she was no friend of mine
Vengeance and justice went hand in hand
There's a law for the rich, and a law for the poor
I'm just a simple workin' man, I'm just a simple workin' man

The charge was assault & battery
The judge said there'd be no bail
The charge was assault & battery
Three years in the stinkin' jail

The charge was assault & battery
The charge was assault & battery
The charge was assault & battery
