Emptied out my pocket's things
Wondered why the caged bird sings
Charged with the same dang crime
Sentenced for the third dang time

I'm not innocent
I never said I was
But my lawyer doesn't have a tongue like Jesse Jackson does
But here inside this prison cell, I keep remembering
My parole officer was the prettiest thing

And I still know your number by heart
Even though you no longer play a part
Well, I don't know if it's love or if I'm smart
But I still know your number by heart

Dreaming of the hours we spent
Sure beats breaking up cement
We were introduced by fate
Sort of like a first blind date

Our secret rendezvous set free this heart of mine
Not knowing that you'd follow me across the county line
And I've seen how drugs and alcohol can get your dander up
But for your charms I'd pee in any cup

I saw a statue of a lady
Justice was her name
And I knew the balance that she held would some day tip my way
Some poet said that love's blind, too, but I can see its plan
And that little job I pulled last year someday made me your man

I dream of breaking out
Your pull is so intense
The hounds of love keep barking through the fence
But I know in three to five I'll need you even more
I pray my file comes knocking at your door
