Mighty Mighty Bosstones - Rascal King lyrics

Well he was fueled by a lack
Drew inspiration from a need
So many problems to crack
And mouths to feed
Crooked was the path
And brazen was the walk
A cocky swagger, up the ladder
And could he ever talk

The last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
The rascal king behind the bars
Or the one in front of them
The last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
The rascal king behind the bars
Or the one in front of them

The love of god
And constant contradictions
And just a smile, wink and nod
What's stranger fact or fiction?
And never ceasing to amaze
On a regular basis
First hand into his pocket
Or first fist into the faces

And it's the last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
The rascal king behind the bars
Or the one in front of them
The last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
The rascal king behind the bars
Or the one in front of them

A legendary character
Where?
Only there
When?
Only then (Do it again.)
A hero or a hooligan?
Well, that part's never clear (Do it again.)
Pride or shame, it's all the same (Do it again.)
Who's innocent or who's to blame? (Do it again.)
Politics or just a game?
Well in the end they knew his name

Last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
It's the rascal king behind the bars
Or the one in front of them
Well it's the last hurrah?
Nah! I'd do it again
And it's the rascal king behind the bars
Or the one in front of them
