[Chorus]
I gave an inch so you took yourself a mile,
Did the crime, spent the time, now they’ve got you on file.
You stepped outside and said you’d be a little while.

[Verse 1]
I got bail cause I fought tooth and nail,
Found myself a devil in the detail.
‘Cos I hid my stash and a mountain of cash,
Just like a needle in the hay bale.

[Verse 2]
Well a loose floorboard just can’t be ignored,
There between the beams you found my score.
And you had no idea that I’d lifted the gear,
You left me with a note and nothing more.

[Chorus]
I gave an inch so you took yourself a mile,
Did the crime, spent the time, now they’ve got you on file.
You stepped outside and said you’d be a little while.

[Verse 3]
Now I’m a decent man but she fleeced me and ran,
Left me looking guilty when I took the stand.
Well you made your bed it was something you said,
So you thought of double-crossing me instead.

[Chorus]
I gave an inch so you took yourself a mile,
Did the crime, spent the time, now they’ve got you on file.
You stepped outside and said you’d be a little while.

[C Section]
I got an inkling that something was wrong,
I got to thinking this was our swan song,
But I should’ve known all along.
It was the look of greed that gave you away,
And the want for more in life that’s led us astray,
An unjust distrust when we should love and obey.

[Verse 4]
And with a stab in the back you know I covered my tracks,
And reeling from the steal I hit the road jack.
You might think you’ve won but now I’ve gotten my gun,
Ready, set, go you’d better run.

[Chorus]
I gave an inch so you took yourself a mile,
Did the crime, spent the time, now they’ve got you on file.
You stepped outside and said you’d be a little while.
