Yeah I am in prison, but it sure was not my aim
Yeah I am in prison, but it sure was not my aim
I got a number on my door, oh lord mama I got a number for my name

Mama they've taken my clothes, yeah I cried they've taken my name
Yes they taken my clothes mama, mama they've taken my name
Now I know I forgot my reason, Oh lord mama I know I'm to blame

I tried to please a woman, and I tried to please my friends
Yes I tried to please a woman, and I tried to please my friends
Now they're all out having fun, oh lord mama I declare I'm locked in

My cell number's thirteen, people you know that's a crying shame
Yes my cell number's thirteen, people you know that's a crying shame
Yeah I know that I've been doomed, oh lord since I got a number instead of a name

I tried to please a woman, and I tried to please my friends
Yes I tried to please a woman, and I tried to please my friends
Now they're all out having fun, oh lord mama I'm locked in
