Track Name: Rule 21
The fix is in
It's rib-eye and lobster dinners if we let 'em win
'Cause when the action's sweet enough
It's payday if you're discreet enough

All my dues
Will be recouped, 10-fold if I can stand to lose
I've got Legs Diamond on the phone
I'm taking steams with Al Capone
In Cooperstown I'll have a throne

I've been erased
A black bar across my name, ashamed and disgraced
Nobody will remember me
I've been tossed outta history
I bet and lost a legacy

I'm seein' dollar-signs, Hunnybun!

No sleep 'til Cooperstown
Track Name: Operation: Vamos
Communique from Washington
Top secret mission coming in
Operation: Vamos
Target: Wilson Ramos

A Venezuelan Holiday
They're gonna take that kid away
Operation: Vamos
Target: Wilson Ramos

No ransom payment in demand
It's Pudge's agent's master-plan
Operation: Vamos
Target: Wilson Ramos

No one will miss the missing man
He ain't a US citizen
Operation: Vamos
Target: Wilson Ramos

No mas secuestros
No mas insecuridad
Liberen a Wilson
D'evolver a la ciudad

I can't help it baby, I'm a target
