Slippery

Hide your hat 'cause the talk is all

that old Slippery is back on the crawl.

Speak of the snake and he'll slide on in.

You'd better not shake his hand, he might shed some skin

because he's cool and slick and funky

with an eye on someone else's money.

What you get is what you don't.

You're going to outsmart the fool but you won't.

You might think you can deal him one

until you feel the quick bite of that old forked tongue

because he's cool and slick and funky

with a finger on someone else's money.

Robbing Bobby to pay Jack

but Jack, he didn't get anything back.

And Peter and Paul, they can tell you straight

that they didn't pick up any loose change.

Isn't that strange?

Tooth and nail, foot and claw --

there isn't much left when you get your draw.

Slippery is as Slippery's not --

when you really want to find him you know you can't

because he's cool and slick and funky

with a pocketful of someone else's money.
