NINE LIVES

Like a cat with 9 lives
No matter what
You land on your feet
You come out on top.

The money, the clothes
The jewelry, the cars
The restaurants, the trips
The nights in the bars.

That winsome smile
That devilish grin
At any cost
You plan to win.

You get your way
By lying and stealing
You get what you want 
By wheeling and dealing. 

All the distortions
So hard to expel 
So smooth and so slick
You lie so damn well.

You should have to pay
For those things you do 
That hurt and contort
The facts and the truth.

But like a cat with 9 lives
No matter what
You land on your feet
You come out on top.
