Listen here you crazy bastard
You took a life now beg forgiveness
For gunning down an unarmed poet
In the prime of his verse chorus
You think you have served your time
But a punishment should fit the crime
I think they should let you out and let us bury you alive

I can't help it
It sounds sadistic
But it's the way I feel and you deserve it
I'll buy the shovel
You'll do the digging
In this way you'll find forgiveness

If the board grants your pardon
Don't hesitate to call me Chapman
I won't stall, no I won't tarry
I'll drive you straight to the cemetery

I can't help it
It sounds sadistic
But it's the way I feel and you deserve it
I'll buy the shovel
You'll do the digging
In this way you'll find forgiveness
