Lyrics
If you've got over fifteen grands, better split it ninety-nine different ways.
If you've got over fifteen grands, you better split it ninety-nine different ways.
'Cause the racketeer is got no, certain place to dig your grave.

When they demand your money, you got to give it up with a smile.
When they demand your money, you got to give it up with a smile.
And if you refuse, they'll read about you in a short little while.

When this gang is out to get you, it don't do no good to run.
When the gang is out to get you, it don't do no good to run.
It's true you can dodge the law, but you can't dodge them slugs out the machine gun.

You slave hard for your money, just to give it to some other one.
You work hard for your money, just to give it to some other one.
And if you refuse, the answer will be from a racketeer's gun.

When the gang is out to get you, they'll follow you everywhere.
When the gang is out to get you, they'll follow you everywhere.
You can even move to West Hell, dog gone if they don't find you there.
