You wouldn't listen to your mamma

You wouldn't listen to your dad

The only aunt and uncle that you ever had

Your cousin's the reason you are where you are

He stole your smile and laughter

and your hot rod car.

 

It'd stop on a penny

Squeal tires on a dime

To outrace the nickles

for a quarter every time.

 

A half dollar cop would arrest you today

and a full dollar judge would send you away

A million dollar lawyer, you just couldn't afford

That's why your there and listening

to the prison club board.

 

Your freedom's denied

once again by George,

Lincoln and Jefferson

are all in one accord.

 

I like buttermilk biscuits and country fried chicken

Mashed potatoes and gravy, cause it's all finger licking

But I don't get fed this way, not here in prison

So Dear Mom and Dad, I should've gave a listen.

 

I'd stop on a penny

Squeal tires on a dime

To outrace the nickles

for a quarter every time

 

That you'd said I'd pay the Piper

if I'd done the crime

But it's too late for my cousin's dead

And I'm sitting here a crying.

 

A half dollar cop would arrest me today

and a full dollar judge would send me away

A million dollar lawyer, I just couldn't afford

That's why I'm here and listening

to the prison club board.

That's why I'm here and listening

to the prison club board.
