  • You’re a white collar boy and you gave into the law

    Give in to the pressure, the cops gonna getcha!

    You were a thieving dog at work until they caught your little paw

    Your wage won’t stretch, to picking up checks

    A custodial sentence you narrowly avoided

    Community service you had to go along with

    You’re banging the rocks at the old city docks

    Poor boy!

    (White collar boy, by Belle and Sebastian)
