This is life in this world
Some things go right
Some things go wrong
It's just how the world can be
People just want to 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 labeled me filthy
Only God can judge me, touch me, feel me...

My friend calls me at 9 o-clock
Says, "Get the car it's time to rock"
Never heard him speak this way

I grab the keys and hit the road
It's all a flash but who would know
How the 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
Throws his pistol on the dash

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

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 time0
Don't charge me for the crime
(Wrong place, wrong time)
Don't charge me...

Siren sound and my heart was poundin'
I looked at my man as the cops surround him
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 got to do what's right

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

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

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