Here are the entire lyrics:

If you wanna make the move then you better come in

It's just the ability to reason that wears so thin

Living and dying and the stories that are true

The secret to a good life is knowing when you're through

Black coat, white shoes, black hat, Cadillac

The boy's a time bomb

He's back in the hole where they got him living like a rat

Be he's smarter than that  Nine lives like a cat

Take him to the youth authority home

First thing you learn is you got to make it in this world alone

Now he's gotten out  He's gotten free  He's gotta go

Gotta car 21 years old   He's runnin' numbers from the bar

His pager's beepin'  He's gettin' deep in whatever

He can move on in  You know that kid's a creepin' in

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 the herd's deal  The new king is crowned.
