The Man With The Plan

He said I have a plan
and I'm your man  
so listen closely  
because I want you  
to help me  
 as best you can  
there is a movie theatre  
that sits down town  
me and a buddy  
are planning to hit  

Here's where the three of us  
will hide he showed me  
taking me aside  
we'll wait here  
until it's time to slip inside  
then we're gonna  
rob them blind
 
So he said that  
it was our secret  
keep my lips closed tight  
for me not to worry  
everything would be alright  
so I played along  
to keep the peace  
but I knew someone  
should tell the police  
 
I stood infront of the mirror  
staring at my clothes  
when my mother appeared  
out of nowhere  
she said I shouldn't  
be dressing down  
I looked in the mirror  
I swear I saw a clown  
 
And I told my mother  
that we needed to talk  
I was scared if the three  
of us were caught  
none of us would walk  
I could tell she was  
getting ready for work  
still she listened to me  
when I told her about  
the planned robbery  
she said this is a case  
for the local police  
 
We need to let the cops know  
so they can get everything  
down on paper  
and put a stop to  
the robbery  
I told her that's true  
and I was only playing along  
that I really didn't want  
to do anything wrong  
 
Mother said I did nothing  
that you could call wrong  
so she understood  
why I had played along  
Then I told her  
not to tell anyone  
it was I who let  
the cat out of the bag  
because if my man  
found out I'd sure be dead  
 
And I woke up from this dream  
with such a feeling of dread  
all kinds of weird thoughts  
were running through my head  
So I got out of bed  
it was the middle of the night  
still I put on some coffee  
knowing things would be alright
