    Lyrics »

Well, I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the Russians, too

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this

I'm the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between the rock and the hard place
And I'm down on my luck
And I'm down on my luck
And I'm down on my luck

Now I'm hiding in Honduras
I'm a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
The shit has hit the fan

Send lawyers, guns and money...

LYRICS TO THE WALLFLOWERS VERSION FROM ENJOY EVERY SANDWICH:

Well, I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the Russians, too

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this

I am the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between a rock and a hard place
And I'm down on my luck
And I'm down on my luck
And I'm down on my luck

Now I'm hiding in Honduras
I am a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
The shit has hit the fan

Send lawyers, guns and money...

I am the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between a rock and a hard place
Now I'm down on my luck
And I'm down on my luck
And I'm down on my luck

Send lawyers, guns and money...
