The Lyrics

This is based on george Michael's recent court appearance and prison sentence. The third verse tries to include some of his hits in the lyrics. I have also done a backing track on my keyboard and transposed the original into a key I can play on guitar. Please let me know if you would like the guitar chords.

Go to Jail... The Judge said Go To Jail

With the cannabis hitting my brain
My car went bang, bang,bang as it slid in the rain
At Snappy Snaps came to a halt
And when the cops arrived I said it wasn't my fault
I wish I'd chosen to stay in bed
I got arrested and the copper said
You're smoking joints and you're off your head
You'll lose your Freedom, you should have stayed at home instead,

Lock me up before you go go
Got arrested driving in my mo-mo
Lock me up before you go go
Sentence passed and I cried
Lock me up before you go go
Got arrested driving in my mo-mo
Lock me up before you go go
Sentence passed and I cried
I'm spending time inside

They put the handcuffs onto my wrists
I got myself sky high and they found me pissed
With the cannabis into my brain
The car went bang, bang bang I was really insane
I wish I'd chosen to stay in bed
I got arrested and the copper said
You're smoking joints and you're off your head
You'll lose your Freedom, you should have stayed at home instead,

Lock me up before you go go
Got arrested driving in my mo-mo
Lock me up before you go go
Sentence passed and I cried
Lock me up before you go go
Got arrested driving in my mo-mo
Lock me up before you go go
Sentence passed and I cried
I'm spending time inside

And when the van turned into the gates
All the boys cried out, want to be my mates
At first I wanted to hide
In a Different Corner, I was stuck inside
When I come out, give it one more try
Like Jesus To A Child, I could cry
Lost my Freedom, try to Heal The Pain
With a Carelss Whisper just to help me write my songs again

Lock me up before you go go
Got arrested driving in my mo-mo
Lock me up before you go go
Sentence passed and I cried
Lock me up before you go go
Got arrested driving in my mo-mo
Lock me up before you go go
Sentence passed and I cried
I'm spending time inside

Tooled nicely down the road deftly avoiding pot-holes! BTW, what's a mo-mo?

a "mo-mo" is a childlike phrase meaning motor car, often used when little children are playing with their toys, hence the link to George's little accident!
