Lyrics

I'm gonna show you that good guys don't always win
I'm gonna show you the brighter side of living in sin
So when you're six feet under, you won't wonder why
Just 'cause you got a halo don't mean that you can fly
If you thought it was over, you're way off track
You made a blunder, and...

You put me back, back in business
This ain't no hit or miss, I'm gonna get my way
'Cause you put me back, back in business
You're my first witness, and I'm here to stay

I'm gonna show you good guys always finish last
Speaking of virtue, being nice is a thing of the past
When I want something done, I'll say it with a gun
Just 'cause you're an angel don't mean you're having fun
I just wanted to thank you for what you lack
Hope they don't hang you, 'cause...

You put me back, back in business
This ain't no hit or miss, I'm gonna get my way
'Cause you put me back, back in business
You're my first witness, and I'm here to stay

A tisket, a tasket, you've lost your yellow basket
You don't know if you want to hit me or kiss me
I just wanted to thank you for what you lack
Hope they don't hang you, 'cause...

You put me back, back in business
This ain't no hit or miss, I'm gonna get my way
'Cause you put me back, back in business
You're my first witness, and I'm here to stay

(He's back in business now)
Give me a hand and I'll take a bow
(He's back in business now)
Bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah
(He's coming back in style)
Give me an inch and I'll take a mile
(He's back and why oh why)
Bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah

(He's back in business now)
Give me a hand and I'll take a bow
(He's back in business now)
Bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah
(He's coming back in style)
Give me an inch and I'll take a mile
(He's back and why oh why)
Bwah bwah bwah bwah bwah bwah
