he was sittiní in the lounge of the empire hotel
he was drinkiní for diversion, he was thinkiní for himself
a little money ridiní on the maple leafs
along comes this lady in sleeves

she says
let me sit down, you know,
drinkiní aloneís a shame,
itís a shame, itís a cryiní shame
G                         F                    C
look at those jokers glued to that damn hockey game

hey, honey, you got lots of cash,
bring us Ďround a bottle and weíll have some laughs
Bb                             G              C
ginís what iím drinkiní; i was raised on robbery

she says,
      F                                         C
iím a pretty good cook, sittiní on my groceries
       G                        F                C
come up to my kitchen, iíll show you my best recipes
i try and i try, but i canít save a cent
iím up after midnight cookiní tryiní to make my rent
    Bb                            G              C
iím rough but Iím pleasiní; i was raised on robbery


we had a little money once,
they were pushiní through a four lane highway
government gave us three thousand dollars,
    F                        C
you shoulda seen it fly away

first he bought a fifty-seven Biscayne, he put it in the ditch
he drunk up all the rest, that son of a bitch
    Bb                         G              C
his bloodís bad whiskey; i was raised on robbery

you know you ainít bad lookiní,
i like the way you hold your drinks
come home with me honey,
        F                              C
i ainít askiní for no full-length mink

	hey, where you goiní?
donít go yet, your glass ainít empty and we just met
youíre mean when youíre loaded;
      G              C
i was raised on robbery
