Sinister Side

from by Bombadil



I've got a straw hat
I took it from a tourist
took it right off his head
because I'm a purist
next I got his pocket watch
stuck at half past three
that was meant for a grandson
but got passed on to me

I didn't mean for it to hurt
it's just my line of work
there's an angel on the right shoulder tellin' me no
a devil on the left sayin on with the show
the angel on the right says boy you better think twice
why does the side of the devil always look so nice

I've got a camera
equipped with a flash
it was taken from someone's
secret stash
now I've got some photos
though none of myself
all the folks that I don't know
got empty frames on the shelf

I've got a backpack
but I did the gal a favor
when I took it off her hands
it was freedom that I gave her
inside I found a history book
on the Russian revolution
looks like Marx says that I'm justified
with my wealth redistribution
