LYRIC



SAX MAN SLIM
SETTIN’ THE RHYTHM OF THE CITY
FOG ROLLS IN
OPENIN’ SCENE OF A MOVIE

JAZZ PORTRAIT HARLEM
HANGS ON THE WALL
LATIN’ BOYS LAUGHIN’
DON’T GOT A CARE IN THE WORLD

UNTIL THE SHOTS RANG OUT
AND MANNY DROPPED TO THE FLOOR
DIDN’T SEE WHO HAD FIRED
BUT HE KNEW THE WHAT FOR

(CHORUS)
(IT WAS) PAYBACK TIME
FOR LEADIN’ THE LIFE HE LED
PAYBACK TIME
FOR THINGS HE HAD DONE AND SAID
PAYBACK TIME
TOO LATE TO START AGAIN
PAYBACK TIME

GOT WHAT HE HAD COMIN’?
YEAH, MAYBE HE DID
WAS STILL A GOOD MAN
TO HIS WIFE AND HIS KID

BUT LET ME SAY THIS
WHERE THERE AIN’T NO MISTAKE
THE GUY WAS BAD NEWS
WHEN THERE WAS MONEY AT STAKE

(CHORUS)

AS HE LAY ON THE FLOOR
HE LOOKED UP TO THE CEILING
PRAYED TO HIS GOD
“LET ME LIVE TO GET EVEN”

(CHORUS X2)
