The Lyrics

The following was not based on acual event.
One day,
NYPD came and got me
Didn't get a reason why
One call,
Just one call is all they gave me
So I called my Moma
But I cried so hard cause she was laughing

Why me
Why am I stuck in this prison
Tell me
What have I done

But I'm not guilty
I shouldn't be in this jail
Lawyer, told me I'll get bail
But if I don't then I'm gonna die
My cellmate's gay, oh my

I'm escaping
I'm breaking out of this cell
If you, see me then don't tell
Just turn your head and look the other way
Oh no, my cellmate's gay

They,
Told me I won't get a trial
I thought that was against the law
Judge said,
Said congress had passed legislation
And I would have to stay here
'Til my earlobe sagged down to my ankles

Oh no
Bubba's looking at me funny
Somehow
I've got to run

But I'm not guilty
I shouldn't be in this jail
Lawyer, told me I'll get bail
But if I don't then I'm gonna die
My cellmate's gay, oh my

I'm escaping
I'm breaking out of this cell
If you, see me then don't tell
Just turn your head and look the other way
Oh no, my cellmate's gay

I'm so scared I cannot sleep

Why did they have to arrest me

Now they're putting me away

But I'm not guilty
I shouldn't be in this jail
Lawyer, told me I'll get bail
But if I don't then I'm gonna die
My cellmate's gay, oh my

I'm escaping
I'm breaking out of this cell
If you, see me then don't tell
Just turn your head and look the other way
Oh no, my cellmate's gay

Oh no, my cellmate's gay

Oh no, my cellmate's gay

I shouldn't be in this jail

Oh no, my cellmate's gay

Oh no, my cellmate's gay

I shouldn't be in this jail
