"Better Get A Lawyer" as written by David Allen Vaught, Gregory Perkins, Daniel Atkins, James G. Cruickshank, Ken Gormly and James Elliott....
I wasn't doin' nothin', anyway
Just what is it that I'm supposed to have done?

With bloodshot eyes and bleedin' hands
I put my new suit in the cleaners again
I took the first bus, I didn't look back
Lungs long blowin' like a smokestack
Hair fallin' out as the wind blows through it
My horse ran second, just like I knew it would
Overflowin' ashtray, yeah

Oh yeah
Then the officer said

Better get a lawyer, son
You better get a real good one

Get yourself a suit and tie
And get your hair cut way up high
Get yourself a lawyer, son
You're gonna need a real good one

I got legs, I can walk
All the way down the dirt track
I fell down, I got up
I turned around and then I walked back
I walked to the sea
I stood there and looked for a sign
I took time, but it came
I added up and took what was mine

Don't drop the soap
Don't smoke no dope
Get yourself a lawyer, son
You're gonna need a good one to get you outta this one

    General CommentI assume it has something to do with George Dubya Bush, since that's what the guy's impression sounds like. But I'm not sure why he's holed up in a Texas jail cell...
