Verse 1
This is life in this world
Some things go right, some things go wrong
It's just how the world can be
People just wanna be free
Yeah
Verse 2
The verdict came in and it said I was guilty
I looked at the judge, "Hey, America built me"
Tried to get rich, but they label me filthy
Only God can judge me, touch me, feel me!
Verse 3
My friend calls me at nine o'clock
Says, "Get the car, it's time to rock."
Never heard him speak this way
(Way, way)
Verse 4
Let's go man
Verse 5
I grab the keys and hit the road
It's all a flash, but who would know
How this story would unfold
Don't charge me for the crime
Verse 6
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
Verse 7
My friend gets in the car with bags
Filled to the top with loads of cash
(See this paper right here?)
And throws the pistol on the dash
(Yeah, it's time to get money now)
Verse 8
Says, "I'm sorry for the crime
That I've involved you in this time,
You're the only friend I've got"
So don't charge me for the crime
Verse 9
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime

I start to freak and scream so loud
Just like the females in the crowd
That's when he gets in my head
(Head, head)
Verse 11
(Come on man, we gotta do this)
Verse 12
You could live just like a king
With everything you'd ever need
All the dreams of every man
Don't charge me for the crime
Verse 13
Wrong place, wrong time
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time, you know
Don't charge me
Verse 14
Sirens sound and
My heart was poundin'
I looked at my man as the cops surround 'em
A teen on the scene with no objective
The American dream can be so deceptive
Verse 15
Now I see the flashing lights
There goes my future and my life
Now I've gotta do what's right
(Right, right)
Verse 16
(Oh, man, they've got us, they've got us)
Verse 17
I stop the car and throw the keys
Out of the window, sets me free
I throw the pistol in the back
(Back, back)
Verse 18
(Ah, ah, ah)
Verse 19
I throw him out of the car, I say,
"You know me well,
I'm not goin' to jail
I'm not paying your bail
Believe me when I say,
They won't charge me for the crime"
Verse 20
Wrong place, wrong time (yeah)
Don't charge me for the crime
Wrong place, wrong time
Won't charge me! Oh
Wrong place,
Wrong time
Wrong place,
Wrong time
Verse 21
They won't charge me for the
Crime
