"Straight Jacket" as written by Peter Jonnathan Davison, Melvin Leroy Ellis, Michael Davison and Keith Warren....
Police pulled me in on a Saturday night
Accused me of thieving and starting a fight
Never did a job I swear,
cops come from everywhere
They're only picking on my generation
They don't need any provocation

Please the police please mister
Get down on your knees mister
You're going down for a long time Jack
Better put on that straight jacket straight jacket

Caught me in a corner of a public lav
Emptied my pockets took what I had
Waste of time all the pain
Wrong man again
They're only picking on my generation
They don't need any provocation

Chased me from here to the other side of there
Another night inside but I don't care
Beat me up in the rain
straight jacket okay
They're only

    Song MeaningI believe this song is about someone who has committed a crime and is about to face a sentence in jail, so he pleads instanity.

    (Your going down for a long time jack, better put on that straight jacket)
