	Smiling phases, showing traces
	Even when they bust you
	Keep on smiling through and through

	As they sentence you

[repeat intro]

Verse 2:

	You don't need a lawyer
	When you're in a fix
	Someone gets the payoff
	You're friends are full of tricks
	Happiness is something
	That you just can't find
	Own up to the truth girl
	You're living with your mind

Chorus 2:

	Sugar daddy brings you flowers
	You just hang him up and
	Keep him waiting there for hours
	And you should see the look on his face
	As you slide down the rail
