The Lyrics


Sittin’ in the local court,
I’ve been wishin’ that I hadn’t been caught.
Seeing the judge roll in,
And then I see the jury come in again, yeah.

I’m sittin’ in the dock all today
Hoping that things go my way.
Ooh, I’m just sittin’ in the dock all today
Killing time.

I robbed a bank in Goring,
Thought that I’d get clean away.
But I slipped on the flooring,
I suppose you’d say it wasn’t my day!

And now I’ve had to sit in the dock all today
Hoping that things go my way.
Ooh, I’m sittin’ in the dock all today
Killing time.

Seems like things are going to change,
Just as soon as I’m in a cell.
I daren’t think what the inmates want me to do,
But I guess my life will be hell, yes,

Sittin’ here shocked to the core,
And I don’t think I can take any more.
Never had a chance of bail,
Going from this dock to jail.

Well I’ve now finished in this dock, and from today
Biding my lifetime away,
And my hair has started going grey
Doing time.
