Res
The Hustler
[Verse 1]
I’ve got something with me
My soul’s kind of gritty
Now do I lie or run away
Engine, engine number nine you get your way or I’ll get mine
Sure as the sun will shine each day

[Pre-Hook]
Just like the apple temptress set in
I win, you’re tackled
Shackles on my feet won’t let me move
Not soft, but supple
Come with all you got, my wings won’t ruffle
Victory is sweet but I ain’t scared to lose

[Hook]
In my house the moon still shines in the day
But there's a lot of old bills I gotta pay
In my house feel free to dance like it's May
But there's a lot of old bills I gotta pay

[Verse 2]
Momma, can you hear me
Papa, I'm sitting pretty
Don’t have to shun my heart this time
I know when it really matters it’ll be me alone
And regrets will be none

[Pre-Hook] + [Hook]

[Bridge]
I’ll be on my own
It don’t matter, I’m grown
I won’t be singing no sad song in the land
And if I rub you wrong, baby, I’ll come on strong
I got no mind to cushion what I say

[Hook]
