Take me away, take me away
They're going to take me away
To Pelican Bay
Pelican Bay, Pelican Bay
They're going to take me to Pelican Bay

They don't have no fishing in the Pelican Bay
Room and board and free waits

Pelican Bay, Pelican Bay
They're going to take me to Pelican Bay

An eye for an eye
A man for a man
You kill one of mine, I'm taking three of them
Strawberry wine is thicker than blood
When you're kicking back in the cut

And if the weak don't get you then Charlie will
If the life don't reach you then Satan will

Pelican Bay, Pelican Bay
They're going to take me to Pelican Bay

They don't have no fishing in the Pelican Bay
Sure is dull when you count the days

Pelican Bay, Pelican Bay
They're going to take me to Pelican Bay

Even the Lord will forget about us
Even the Lord will forget about us
Even the Lord will forget about us
Down on the Pelican Bay

They're going to take me to Pelican Bay
Take me to Pelican Bay
They're going to take me to Pelican Bay

    General CommentThis song is about a prison in California called "Pelican Bay."

    It's "free weights," by the way, not "waits."

    General CommentThese lyrics look wrong. I think it's:

    "Room and board and free weights"
    "When you can't get back in the cut"
    "And if the pig don't get you then Charlie will"

    General CommentI absolutely love her voice in this! It should have been on the actual album!
