Read About the Mob © 1999 by Drew James


When I was a young boy

Growing up on the streets

In the Italian neighborhood

I’d watch the old men

Down on the corner

And knew they were up to no good


They all had young girls

And fresh tailored suits

And drove in big black cars

They walked like kings

Through the alleys and the streets

Drank on the arm in all the bars



I love to read about the mob

And catch their TV shows

I wear a dark suit and a Borsolino hat

And vacation on the Jersey shore


Sammy “the bull” Gravano

Lucky Luciano

Paul Castellano

Frankie Abbatemarco

Sal Maranzano

Author of the “No Hands Rule”


Whether puttin’ up a book

Or riding a cold meat hook

The big Dons and the Godfathers rule

They’ll take you up the Bridge of Sighs

And have you stare into the mad dogs eyes

Till you take the wrap and play the fool




Cosa Nostra face due Valacchi

Mafioso capo Carlo Gambino

Midnight Rose and rosso tavolo vino

Don’t get cozy Dr. Lambardozzi

Steel bullets and a rubber hosie

The FBI is getting’ real nosey



Award Winning Songwriter
