VERSE 1
Put down the gun and step away from the door
Put down the gun and step away from the door, oh no

Hands on your head step away from the door,
Hands on your head step away from the door, oh no
Oh no

CHORUS 1
Nobody told me it was on the sly
Nobody told me it was on the sly
Nobody told me it was on the sly

VERSE 2
Give up the game I got the whole thing on tape,
Give up the game I got the whole thing on tape, oh no

Make no mistake you know there ain't no escape,
Make no mistake I got the whole thing on tape, oh no
There ain't no escape, oh no

CHORUS 2
Nobody told me it was on the sly
Nobody told me it was on the sly
I should've known you'd hang me out to dry
Nobody told me
I should've known you'd hang me out to dry
Nobody told me

    @nebyoolae: What can I say I am a child of the nineties it's in my blood. Gonna go listen to Slap Dash again, that tune always gets me pumped

    Simple, 90s-era garage rock, but catchy and engaging all the same!

    Steve here, this is a pretty simple song I wrote a few years back. It was built around these 2 drums samples that were arranged in this lurching, driving rhythm. Add a generous serving of distortion and you're set.

    The lyrics (see below) were inspired in part by the 1998 masterpiece (?) The Negotiator, starring Kevin Spacey and Samuel L Jackson, but they're a tribute to certain cop movie cliches in general. ie. The old Get The Villain To Confess His Plan While Secretly Recording Him. Works every time.

    LYRICS

    Put down the gun step away from the door
    Put down the gun step away from the door
    Oh no
    Hands on your head step away from the door
    Hands on your head step away from the door
    Oh no

    Nobody told me it was on the sly
    Nobody told me it was on the sly
    Nobody told me it was on the sly

    Give up the game, I got the whole thing on tape
    Give up the game, I got the whole thing on tape
    Oh no
    Make no mistake, you know there ain't no escape
    Make no mistake, I got the whole thing on tape
    Oh no
    There's ain't no escape
    Oh no

    Nobody told me it was on the sly
    Nobody told me it was on the sly
    I should've known you'd hang me out to dry
    Nobody told me
    I should've known you'd hang me out to dry
    Nobody told me
