lyrics

You better hope you never go to jail
You better hope that you get off
They’ll make you hurt in places you ain’t even heard of
They’ll rip your insides out

CHORUS

You better hope -You better hope
You better hope you never go to jail
You better hope you never, never go to jail

You better hope you never go to jail
and if you think you will
I’d take myself out if I was you
With a gun or a car or a bottle of pills

CHORUS

You better hope you never go to jail
I’ve seen your kind before
They’ll violate you the moment that they get you
You lose all rights when you walk through that door

CHORUS

You better hope you never go to jail
I don’t think that you could take it
Takes certain kinds and you can’t fake it
You’ll need protection if you’re gonna make it

CHORUS
