JAIL SONG

Nothing better than a fool with a conscience
Trying to make it 2 – 2 bodies on the street
In a chase with police get arrested
For tipping up tables in the strip joint hang your head
And feel the shame getting caught is a fool’s game
You’re just not equipped for legit so run away
It’s all biographical it ain’t no parody,
Turned into the story of a jailhouse tragedy

It all started at the age of 12 when your dad had a gun
Took you shooting in the summer and you learned to kill some birds
The dumbest kid in all of school, when the bully came around you just knocked him down instead
Very soon it became a fascination - armies in the schoolyard saying
“bang, bang, bang, you’re dead!”
It’s all biographical, ain’t no parody, turned into the story of a jailhouse tragedy
