​Ain't No Crime

This song is by Manfred Mann's Earth Band and appears on the box set Odds & Sods: Mis-takes & Out-takes (2005).

Somebody says to you
"Please won't you tell me the time"
Just because you have no watch
It ain't no crime

And if the same man asks you
"Say, buddy, can you spare me a dime"
Just because you ain't got a penny
It ain't no crime

No it ain't no crime to be the way you are
No it ain't no crime to have no ma nor pa
No it ain't no crime
Can't spare the time if you ain't got a dime

And when the Lord says to you
On your final day of rest
"Son, did you lead a good life?"
Say you did your best

No it ain't no crime to be the way you are
No it ain't no crime to have no ma nor pa
No it ain't no crime
Can't spare the time if you ain't got a dime

Somebody says to you
"Please won't you tell me the time"
Just because you ain't got no watch
It ain't no crime

No it ain't no crime to be the way you are
No it ain't no crime to have no ma nor pa
No it ain't no crime
Can't spare the time if you ain't got a dime
