“On a Monday”

Lyrics

On a Monday, I was arrested
On a Tuesday, I was locked up in jail
On a Wednesday, my trial was attested
And I ain’t gonna ring them yellow women door bell

Yes, I’m all, almost done
Yes, I’m all, almost done
Yes, I’m all, almost done
And I ain’t gonna ring them yellow women door bell

Take these stripes, stripes from around my shoulders
Take these chains, chains from around my leg
Lord, these stripes sure don’t worry me
But these chains, chains gonna kill me dead

Yes, I’m all, almost done
Yes, I’m all, almost done
Yes, I’m all, almost done
And I ain’t gonna ring them yellow women door bell

[break]

Almost done
Almost done
Almost done
And I ain’t gonna ring them yellow women door bell

On a Monday, me and my baby went a-walking
On a Tuesday, she locked me out the door
On a Wednesday, we was sitting down a-talking
On a Thursday, she pawned all of my clothes

Yes, I’m all, almost done
Yes, I’m all, almost done
Yes, I’m all, almost done
And I ain’t gonna ring them yellow women door bell
No, I ain’t gonna ring them yellow women door bell
