Testo The Stove & The Toaster

Testo The Stove & The Toaster

Let's just say they owe me a favor
I did something for them
What it is doesn't matter
Here's what's important:
It's gonna be easy, it's gonna be simple
Put it up to his temple, he's expecting our call

Yeah, they know our intentions
They approve of our methods
They consider us partners
Going in through the window
Leave through the terrace
They still owe me a favor
What it is doesn't matter

'Cause they got earpiece dudes in a fortified fortress
And a wholesale crew that does a pretty big business
And I got something we can do in Las Cruces

Got some new information from the chef and the chauffeur
They put the stash in the stove, they keep the cash in the toaster
Down in Las Cruces, they don't play with jokers
I hope I still know you when this is all over

Take a flight to Durango
Take a car to La Quinta
Chevrolet Silverado
Sort of south of the entrance
Drive it down to Las Cruces
Do the thing that we're doing
Push ahead to El Paso
Stay as long as we have to

She's got a line on some guys that're kind of insiders
Said she worked with the cook, said she slept with the driver
They know we're coming but they'll still act surprised
Yeah, they'll still act surprised

'Cause there's just one way in and it's a fortified fortress
There's a way that it works, it's a particular process
And I know something we can do in Las Cruces

Got some new information from the chef and the chauffeur
They put the stash in the stove, they keep the cash in the toaster
Down in Las Cruces, they don't play with jokers
Split it three ways with the chef and the chauffeur
Yeah, I've known those guys for a bit
And it's sounding like they're pretty much over it

We came in the kitchen and I knew it was over
I didn't see any stove no sign of a toaster
Set up for the slaughter and shot in the shoulder
Got pretty screwed by the chef and the chauffeur

Got pretty screwed by the chef and the chauffeur
