Artist's Notes

A song about a couple who attempt an armed robbery, but it doesn't quite go to plan! 


Lyrics

Mr Smith and Mr Wesson

(Verse 1)

 

I walked into the bank with Mr Smith and Mr Wesson
I said I'd kindly be obliged if you would answer my question
Have you got enough money to fill up this bag?
If you need to file the payment you can mark it under ?Swag?.

(Verse 2)

 

The dame behind the counter jumped up and said "Why yes sir!
We can pay you in fifties or hundreds if you prefer?"
This VIP service is as cute as cute can be
Mr Smith and Mr Wesson sure open vaults for me.

(Chorus)

 

Mr Smith
And Mr Wesson
Two fine outstanding gentlemen
For making an impression

(Verse 3)

 

Some heavy in a uniform tried to block my way
Mr Smith and Mr Wesson told him Not Today
I strode out to the Chev, the missus perched at the wheel
I didn't like her countenance but we had sworn a deal

(Bridge)

 

She said

 

?I?d like to talk about, our previous arrangement?

 

As she sat with Mr Luger, her negotiating agent

 

She directed Mr Luger close and pers?nal to my face

 

But his trigger jammed and Mr Smith and Mr Wesson

 

Yeah, you bet-ya

 

They put her in her place! 

 

 

(Verse 4)

 

I turfed her out the car and drove at full velocity

 

You see a beach in Acapulco was calling to me

 

Saw a roadblock up ahead, some sheriff keen to make a name

 

Looked like me and my best buds would have to sort this mess again

 

 

(Chorus)

 

Mr Smith
And Mr Wesson
Two fine outstanding gentlemen
For making an impression 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

Mr Smith
And Mr Wesson
Two fine outstanding gentlemen
For making an impression
