The Lyrics

There were so few lyrics in this one that I had to write another verse!
Police, release me, let me go
I didn't do it, don't you know
To live in jail would be a crime
Police, release me--don't make me do my time.

It's true, I hit him in the head
I didn't know that he was dead
Besides, I learned he was untrue
What else was there for me to do?

Police, release me, let me go
I didn't do it, don't you know
To live in jail would be a crime
Police, release me--don't make me do my time.

They said the evidence was clear
When they found me oh so near
The night they found him oh so cold
At least that is what I was told

Police, release me, let me go
I didn't do it, don't you know
To live in jail would be a crime
Police, release me--don't make me do my time.

A fresh idea on an old song. Not bad. I give you overall 5 for the extra effort of writing an extra verse.

Good job!

THIS should have been the original hit, and "Release Me" the parody.

Book him Danno, 5 counts each.

I love Engel-bewrt. A good hair shirt and a few gold chains certainly do it for me.
