We don't mean no trouble
Forgive her if she comes off mean
You can tell by these masks and guns we came to rob you clean
(Sorry 'bout that)

We got a kid in the car and money don't grow on trees
Though this gun ain't even loaded
Put your hands where my eyes can't see

Sometimes you gotta do what you got to do
Sometimes you gotta bend a couple golden rules
Scheming ain't dreaming but beggars can't afford to choose
And baby needs new shoes

Baby needs aha, baby needs aha
Baby needs aha, baby needs new shoes

This getaway wagon has a stroller in the way backseat
Baby on board gives away our family
Yes it does

Remember why we're doin what we're doin when you feel real bad
It was either this or taking money from your mom and dad
(I can steal from that little girl)

Sometimes you gotta do what you got to do
Sometimes you gotta bend a couple golden rules
Scheming ain't dreaming but beggars can't afford to choose
And baby needs new shoes

Baby needs aha, baby needs aha
Baby needs aha, baby needs new shoes

Take back the money in the morning
But I swear I was only gonna borrow
Lord knows we've all been there a time or two
Ain't that true?

You gotta do what you got to do
Sometimes you gotta bend a couple golden rules
Scheming ain't dreaming
Dreaming never got us through

You gotta do what you got to do
Sometimes you gotta bend a couple golden rules
Scheming ain't dreaming but beggars can't afford to choose
And baby needs new shoes

Baby needs aha, baby needs aha
These new shoes
Baby needs aha, baby needs aha

Sometimes we gotta do what we gotta do

Well, I'm sorry 'bout that
But I needed some cash
You can't blame us for trying, no no
And baby needs new shoes
