If you wanna make a movement then you'd better come in
It's just the ability to reason that wears so thin
Living and dying and the stories that are true
Secret to a good life's knowing when you're through

Black coat, white shoes, black hat, cadillac
Yeah, the boy's a time bomb
Black coat, white shoes, black hat, cadillac
Yeah, the boy's a time bomb

Well, he's back in the hole where they got him living like a rat
But he's smarter than that nine lives like a cat
15 years old, take him to the youth authority home
First thing you learn you gotta make it in this world alone

Black coat, white shoes, black hat, cadillac
Yeah, the boy's a time bomb
Black coat, white shoes, black hat, cadillac
Yeah, the boy's a time bomb

Now he's gotten out, he gotten free, he gotta go, got a car
He's only 21 years old he's runnin' numbers from the bar
His pager's beepin' he's gettin' a-deep in
Whenever he can move on in you know that kid's a-creepin'

Black coat, white shoes, black hat, cadillac
Yeah, the boy's a time bomb
Black coat, white shoes, black hat, cadillac
The boy's a time bomb
Yeah, the boy's a time bomb!

Yeah

Tears come from the razor that's been tattooed below his eye
His mother cries she knows that he is strong enough to die
He's rollin' in the cadillac, it's midnight, sunroof is down
Three shots rung out, our hero's dead, the new king is crowned

Black coat, white shoes, black hat, cadillac
Yeah, the boy's a time bomb
Black coat, white shoes, black hat, cadillac
Yeah, the boy's a time bomb

Black coat, white shoes, black hat, cadillac
Yeah, the boy's a time bomb
Black coat, white shoes, black hat, cadillac
Yeah, the boy's a time bomb
Oh, time bomb!
