    I've always wanted to see a video and made of this song just to know exactly what's going on?!

    It's such a good story, your imagination tries to picture the event, what the Jack of Hearts and other characters all look like...
    But if you asked Bob to explain, he'd probably just say " Oh, that's just a song I wrote."

    More about a bank robber in places, but a cracking good album.

    Thank you for giving me a reason to post this song. I'll also include a translation of the lyrics.


    My sock is empty and so is my piggy bank
    I haven't eaten a Schnitzel in weeks
    All my assets are down the drain
    The bank won't grant me loan on credit anymore

    Yesterday, my mom disowned me
    And the Taxman is standing in front of my door
    In short, I've been backed into a corner
    There's only one option left: Imma have to Rob a bank

    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    The Evil is always and everywhere
    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    The Evil is always and everywhere

    With a stocking on my head I find myself at the site
    I mutter "Well here we go." before I go inside
    I don't have a gun, so I put my finger through my coat
    I can't handle seeing blood, so I just HAVE to bluff my way here.

    "Everybody, hands in the air, this is a hold up!" I scream
    "So please cooperate or else things will get noisy!"
    And the elderly lady in front of me turns around and goes.
    "Young man, please wait in line before your turn!"

    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    The Evil is always and everywhere
    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    The Evil is always and everywhere

    After half an hour, it's finally my turn
    My finger is cramped up from me having to wait for so long.
    I say "Now or never, hand over that cash now!"
    The Cashier looks at me and says "And what's the problem here?"

    "I'm thirsty and starving, I'm the evil guy who will empty you vault!"
    The Cashier goes "No way, what are you thinking?"
    "Okay." I tell him
    "You can keep the change"

    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    The Evil is always and everywhere
    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    Ba-ba-ba-ba-bank robbery
    The Evil is always and everywhere

    Funny how a song that has nothing to do with robbing banks is the very first one that pops into my head when seeing this thread...

    Well it doesn't say explicitly that is banks. But Robbery is in there. :)
