lyrics

Let me tell you a story, about a guy I used to know,
He got mixed up in the wrong crowd,
And his life got thrown away,
Got thrown away,
Yeah his life got thrown away.

Called himself Sonny, 'coz he thought that it sounded fly,
Didn't realise that the mob life would be the reason he would die,
He would die,
It would be the reason that he would die.

Hey Sonny what you doing today?
You don't have to be like this,
Your life doesn't have to go this way,
Hey Sonny, why you doing that?
Did nobody tell you,
That crime doesn't pay,
Crime doesn't pay.

Look into his dark brown eyes you will see,
The child that is lost inside,
He's wondering, what's he doing here,
With this crowd,
What's he doing here with this crowd?

Hey Sonny what you doing today?
You don't have to be like this,
Your life doesn't have to go this way,
Hey Sonny, why you doing that?
Did nobody tell you,
That crime doesn't pay,
Crime doesn't pay.

Oh Sonny Gritts, you've made some mistakes,
Didn't realise this lifestyle,
Would cause you so much pain,
And so much sorrow,
Cause you so much pain and sorrow.

Hey Sonny what you doing today?
You don't have to be like this,
Your life doesn't have to go this way,
Hey Sonny, why you doing that?
Did nobody tell you,
That crime doesn't pay,
Crime doesn't pay.

Hey Sonny what you doing today?
You don't have to be like this,
Your life doesn't have to go this way,
Hey Sonny, why you doing that?
Did nobody tell you,
That crime doesn't pay,
Crime doesn't pay.
Crime doesn't pay.
CRIME DOESN'T PAY.
