lyrics

i've been upset, they cuffed my kid.
i didn't know just what he did.
nobody taught him how to talk.
why can't they teach my kid to talk?
they're taking him to county jail.
yes, as a father i have failed.
my government's taking my baby away.
i tried to post bail but i just could not pay.
how is he doing? he can't even say.
i hope they will free him from his endless stay.
i've been upset, they ticketed my kid.
this was unwarranted.
nobody taught him how to park.
why can't they teach my kid to park?
they're taking him to county jail.
yes, as a father i have failed.
the ppa's taking my baby away.
parallel parking was not his forte.
how is he doing? he can't even say.
i hope they will free him from his endless stay.
he bargained a successful plea.
if he could walk he would walk free.
they're taking him to county jail.
yes, as a father i have failed.
the bailiff is taking my baby away,
rocking my boy in a fatherly way.
how is he doing? he can't even say.
i hope they will free him from his endless stay.
