Cry-Baby the Musical - You Can't Beat the System Lyrics

You can't beat the system
(You can't beat the system)
No, you can't beat the system
(You can't beat the system)

They chain ya, detain ya, restrict ya and restrain ya
They rented special shackles from the state of Pennsylvania
Don't bother with the facts because they're always gonna twist 'em
No matter what you do you know you can't beat the system

Life is a trumped up charge
Life is a trumped up charge!
I'm just another sap
Too dumb to beat their rap
The one way I'm a felon
Is I fell into their trap
The world's the one that did it
But the world is still at large
Life is a trumped up charge

We didn't set no fire
I said, we didn't set no fire!
Let me briefly state my case
I was busy sucking face
I was going for a triple but got stuck at second base
I was over at the quarry swinging naked from a tire
We didn't set no fire

Love is his alibi
I said, love is his alibi!
I can place him at my scene
If you know what I mean
He was with me from approximately six to twelve fifteen
If you call me as a witness I will gladly testify
Love is his alibi

They'll nail ya, they'll jail ya,
They'll say that you're a failure

We certainly appear to have you by the genitalia!

They'll charge you with resistance even if you don't resist 'em
No matter what you do you know
You can't beat the system!
(You can't beat the system)
No you can't beat the system!
(no, no, no, no, no, no, no)
You'll mock it, you'll knock it,
You'll kick and shake and shock it

How dare you come before this court and desecrate my docket!
But there will soon be justice here 'cause you're about to see
You're looking at the system
And you can't beat me.
