GANGSTER TIMES

Here's an old song from 1980 that sums up what living in Malaysia is like these days.


Why must you record my phone calls?

Are you planning a bootleg L.P?

Said you've been threatened by gangsters

Now it's you that's threatening me.


Can't fight corruption with con tricks

They use the law to commit crime?

I dread, dread to think what the future will bring

When we're living in gangster times.


"Don't call me Scarface!"


Don't interrupt while I'm talking

Or they'll confiscate all your guitars.

A catch - 22 says if I sing the truth

They won't make me an overnight star.


Don't offer us legal protection

They use the law to commit crime.

I dread to think what the future will bring

When we're living in real gangster times.
