Remember, when you invest
in the private prison system
you have the safety and security
of knowing that you're
putting innocent people Behind Bars

All of these people
To many people

Lock up these people
All of these people
We’ve got to get them off the street

All of these people,
to many people
We should choose just what they eat

We’ve should put them in a little cell
Make their life one big hell

We can beat them behind closed doors
Make them crawl around on all fours

We can to put them into solitary
That should make them, oh so merry

If we want, we can turn off the lights
They’ll never know if it is day or night

We’ll make them all poop, in a group
We’ll make them all, shower together
We’ll make them all, wear the same clothes
If they don’t like it, they’ll get punched in the nose

All of these people
We’ve got to get them off the street

to many people
Arrest, wash, rinse, and repeat

You are heading to judge hang’em high
Prepare to be crucified
success rate, one hundred percent
Petty crime, with full intent

Ah, I’ve got a situation over here,
I’m gonna need back up

I don’t like the look of those teen agers over there

Lock’em up!

I want those people locked up
and those people locked up
I don’t like the looks of them
Get them off my street

Everybody, up against the wall, spread’em
Oh, you’re goin’ down town buddy
But we didn’t do nothing wrong
Tell it to the judge

You’re gonna be more than late for dinner punk!


Hey, I get a phone call…. Hey, Heyyyyy
