My name is Salvatore Gravano
Early in my life, I was given the nickname Sammy Da' Bull
I was arrested with John Gotti
I was his underboss, and second of command in the Gambino Family

I was under the boss when they made him
And I was made a short time after that
I was under oath when I testified
I'm under government protection, now they're calling me a rat

Mr. Moran, that's who I am
Some call me Sal, some call me Sam
Some call me when they're in a jam
'Cause I'm the man, I'm Mr. Moran

I eat punks like you, I do for breakfast
You're just a bowl of cereal to me
I might be from deep in the heart of Texas
Or maybe I'm from New York, make that Knoxville, Tennessee

Mr. Moran, that's who I am
Some call me Sal, some call me Sam
Some call me when they're in a jam
'Cause I'm the man, I'm Mr. Moran

They will motherfuck me in a heartbeat
But first they've got to find me to do that
I've been selling ecstasy in Arizona
Under government protection, now who's a fuckin' rat?

Mr. Moran, that's who I am
Some call me Sal, some call me Sam
Some call me when they're in a jam
'Cause I'm the man, I'm Mr. Moran

Mr. Moran, that's who I am
Some call me Sal, some call me Sam
Some call me when they're in a jam
I'm the man, I'm Mr. Moran
I'm the man, I'm Mr. Moran
I'm the man, I'm Mr. Moran
