The Lyrics

every night....a bunk for a bed
jail cell so gross its obscene
thinking about...the sad life i have led
in trouble since i...was a teen
i'd like to do it over
and get out of the hole i've dug
i'm broke down and cryin'
cause i've been arrested for drugs

criminal faces...and dark dingy places
so grim, the way that i live
puttin' in time...for my horrible crimes
i've given all i can give
i'm not allowed...to leave this prison crowd
i'm forced to see their ugly mugs
i'd love to depart
but i've been arrested for drugs

oh...gosh darn it...i've been arrested for drugs
oh...gosh darn it...i've been arrested for drugs

i can't go back in time
i can't undo my crimes
upon me, trouble's been heapin'
i've forced to face my plight
the endless days and nights
cause what you sow...you're...reapin'

so every morning...i wake up and worry
who's gonna stab me today
lurk in my doorway...just go out to dine
cause i feel a lot safer that way
you know i miss the company of ladies
and all their kisses and hugs
we're kept far apart
cause i've been arrested for drugs

oh...gosh darn it...i've been arrested for drugs
oh...gosh darn it...i've been arrested for drugs
endless nights and days
i've been arrested for drugs
oh...gosh darn it...i've been arrested for drugs
oh...gosh darn it...i've been arrested for drugs

Such an obvious title, but sometimes obvious are the most easily overlooked, hope you can afford the bailsman:)

Very good 5's - I always enjoy them more when I know and like the original (so mainly 60's & 70's)

"Arrested For Drugs" would also have made a great title for an "Addicted To Love" parody.

Timely and true...very well done

Seriously, the funniest part was a person busted for drugs saying 'gosh darn it'. Not exactly the kind of talk tolerated in our prison system.
