Billy Talent – Hanging Out with All the Wrong People

Hanging Out with All the Wrong People

[Verse 1]
Well, it was many moons ago
That I just did what I was told
When I was hanging out with all the wrong people
I stole a car, I robbed a bank
I syphoned gas out of a tank
I made decisions some would call illegal

[Pre-Chorus]
It all came catching up to me
Right at the age of twenty-three
I met the consequence of reckless ego
They cuffed my hands, sent me to jail
Then gave me twenty months, no bail
Said I'd been hanging out with all the wrong people

[Chorus]
Hanging out with all the wrong people
I was hanging out with all the wrong people
And if I'm never seen again
Please tell my wife and tell my friends
That I was hanging out with all the wrong people, oh

[Verse 2]
Well, a long, long time ago
There was a guy I used to know
That said he fell in love for all the wrong reasons
She got the house, she took the cat
She got the shirt right off his back
And now she's living in the Caribbean

[Pre-Chorus]
There was a girl from down the road
Who had a heart as pure as gold
Friends took her to a church in San Francisco
They promised love, eternal life
All for a very special price
Then drained her savings till she blew the whistle

[Chorus]
Hanging out with all the wrong people
I was hanging out with all the wrong people
And if I'm never seen again
Please tell my wife and tell my friends
That I was hanging out with all the wrong people
Hanging out with all the wrong people
I was hanging out with all the wrong people
They told me time and time again
To watch my back or I'll regret
Sometimes intentions are just downright evil

[Post-Chorus]
People
All the wrong people
People
Oh

[Bridge]
I tell ya now as I look back
Drivin' my brand-new Cadillac
I'm still a criminal but sellin' fiction
I'm stealing votes, you're taking bribes
To hide my mistress on the side
I've found my calling as a politician

[Chorus]
Hanging out with all the wrong people
I was hanging out with all the wrong people
And if I'm never seen again
Please tell my wife and tell my friends
That I was hanging out with all the wrong people
Hanging out with all the wrong people
I was hanging out with all the wrong people
They told me time and time again
To watch my back or I'll regret
Sometimes intentions are just downright evil

[Outro]
They told me time and time again
"You'll end up broke and left for dead
If you keep hanging out with all the wrong people"
