You Can't Win
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

This won't be so hard to follow
You must replace your common sense
And then you will find it's hard to swallow
It's been based on real events
You can only hear what you want to hear
They're wide awake and they're well aware
That they made you a promise that they won't keep
They're wide awake they can't afford to go to sleep

With no remorse or self respect
The course of course id the least direct
They choose to confuse a resource they'll use
Well if they don't win they still won't lose
A red cent or one thin dime
Been banking yours and been baking mine
They say this is the way that it's always been
They may let you in, but they'll never let you win

No way, no how, no
You can't win, no you'll never win
No way, no way, they may
Let you in, but they'll never let you win

What?! now please a word here to the wise
You'll need to read between the lines
You've got to dot the t's and cross your eyes
Cross your fingers when the print is fine
What?! You've got to do is stay one step ahead
They're wide awake while you're still in bed
They count the money while you count the sheep
They're wide awake they can't afford to go to sleep

Now, no way!
No way, no how, no
You can't win, no you'll never win
No way, no way, they may
Let you in, but they'll never let you win
