Zevon Warren - The Sin

rate me

By Warren Zevon

c. Zevon Music BMI, 1980

It's none of my business

But if I may

Remind you of the time

When you did something you knew was wrong

It wasn't called a crime

And I'm not saying that you should give

A sucker an even break

I'm talking about the time

That you were cruel for cruelty's sake

I'm talking about the time

That you were cruel for cruelty's sake

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for the sin?

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for the sin?

Hah?

Maybe you went and stuck your key

In somebody else's door

Maybe you went and helped yourself

To something that wasn't yours

Maybe you simply criticized

Someone you hardly knew

You ruined part of their life for them

Part of your own life, too

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for the sin?

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for it then?

If and when you feel an ill wind

Don't be too surprised

Remember when you should have

Picked on somebody your own size

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for the sin?

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for

How you gonna pay for the sin?

How am I gonna pay for

How am I gonna pay for

How am I gonna pay for the sin?
