"54-46 Was My Number" as written by and Frederick Hibbert....
I said yeah, listen what I say
I said hear me now, listen what I say

I said stick it up mister
Hear what I say sir
Get your hands in the air, sir
And you will get no hurt mister
Do what I say sir
Just what I mean sir
Get your hands in the air, sir
And you will get no hurt mister

Second thing they say I must join the office

Third thing they say, son - give me your number
He'd say "What's your number?"
I don't answer
He'd say "What's your number, man?"
He'd say "What's your number now?"
I said "5446, that's my number..."

First verses again

5446 was my number

Stick it up, mister!
Hear what I say, sir, yeah...
Get your hands in the air, sir!
And you will get no hurt, mister, no no no

I said yeah
What did I say?
Don't you hear? I said yeah
Listen to what I say

Do you believe I would take something with me
And give it to the police man?
I wouldn't do that) And if I do that, I would
say "sir, put the charge on me"
I wouldn't do that
No, I wouldn't do that
I'm not a fool to hurt myself
So I was innocent of what they done to me
They was wrong
Listen to me, they were wrong

Give it to me one time
Give it to me two time
Give it to me three time
Give it to me four time

54 46 was my number
Right now, someone else has that number

    General CommentThey recorded this song when Toots was still in jail, or right after he got out. The record producer brought the 45 to a party that night, everyone there just wanted to hear this song over and over all night. It was a hit before it was ever released.
