The Lyrics

LOSE YOUR FREEDOM

Some time ago I hit a bloke, and landed up in jail.
And from that day, I have to say, my life’s a sorry tale.

Listen up and take my word, it’s no fun in that cell.
You lose your freedom, waste away, and life is merry hell!

When I got out, it wasn’t long, before I turned to crime.
I missed a trick and then got nicked, and had to do more time.

Listen up and take my word, it’s no fun in that cell.
You lose your freedom, waste away, and life is merry hell!

Following that, tried something new, and robbed a jewelry store.
But I was tailed, and so I failed, and then did five years more.

Listen up and take my word, it’s no fun in that cell.
You lose your freedom, waste away, and life is merry hell!

And in the end I lost it all and went and shot the wife.
It’s bad I know, but there you go, I’m now locked up for life.

Listen up and take my word, it’s no fun in that cell.
You lose your freedom, waste away, and life is merry hell!
