This is life in this world
Some things go right, some things go wrong
It's just how the world can be
People just wanna be free
Yeah

The verdict came in and it said I was guilty
I looked at the judge, "Hey, America built me"
Tried to get rich, but they label me filthy
Only God can judge me, touch me, feel me!

My friend calls me at nine o'clock
Says, "Get the car, it's time to rock."
Never heard him speak this way
(Way, way)

Let's go man

I grab the keys and hit the road
It's all a flash, but who would know
How this story would unfold
Don't charge me for the crime

Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime

My friend gets in the car with bags
Filled to the top with loads of cash
(See this paper right here?)
And throws the pistol on the dash
(Yeah, it's time to get money now)

Says, "I'm sorry for the crime
That I've involved you in this time,
You're the only friend I've got"
So don't charge me for the crime

Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime

I start to freak and scream so loud
Just like the females in the crowd
That's when he gets in my head
(Head, head)

(Come on man, we gotta do this)

You could live just like a king
With everything you'd ever need
All the dreams of every man
Don't charge me for the crime

Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time, you know
Don't charge me

Sirens sound and
My heart was poundin'
I looked at my man as the cops surround 'em
A teen on the scene with no objective
The American dream can be so deceptive

Now I see the flashing lights
There goes my future and my life
Now I've gotta do what's right
(Right, right)

(Oh, man, they've got us, they've got us)

I stop the car and throw the keys
Out of the window, sets me free
I throw the pistol in the back
(Back, back)

(Ah, ah, ah)

I throw him out of the car, I say,
"You know me well,
I'm not goin' to jail
I'm not paying your bail
Believe me when I say,
They won't charge me for the crime"

Wrong place, wrong time (yeah)
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Won't charge me! Oh

Wrong place,
Wrong time
Wrong place,
Wrong time

They won't charge me for the
Crime
