In Jail For My Birthday
 

In jail for my birthday, no candles or cake

Getting older not wiser was my big mistake

I’m here in the drunk tank, if you’re looking for me

In jail for my birthday – happy birthday to me

 

It started out peaceful – three cheers and a shot

But things escalate quickly more often than not

Friends tried to stop me, I’m here to confess

How I ended up naked, is anyone’s guess

 

In jail for my birthday, no candles or cake

Getting older not wiser was my big mistake

I’m here in the drunk tank, if you’re looking for me

In jail for my birthday – happy birthday to me

 

Somewhere I decided to climb over a fence

They said digging for treasure was my defense

Was I singing that loudly, too close to the dawn?

Chased through the sprinklers across somebody’s lawn

 

In jail for my birthday, no candles or cake

Getting older not wiser was my big mistake

I’m here in the drunk tank, if you’re looking for me

In jail for my birthday – happy birthday to me

 

Someone let their dogs out, I ran for the gate

They were barking and growling

Like it’s a week since they ate

I flung myself over, thought I’d made it in time

One jumped and flew past me

One caught up from behind

 

In jail for my birthday, no candles or cake

Getting older not wiser was my big mistake

I’m here in the drunk tank, if you’re looking for me

In jail for my birthday – happy birthday to me
