On a Monday,
On a Tuesday,
On a Wednesday,
On a Thursday,
The Judge's gavel fell
I got stripes,
I got chains,
I got stripes,
And them chains, them chains,

My momma come to see me
They caught me with a file
I'm down in solitary
I start on bread and water for a while
I got stripes,
I got chains,
I got stripes,
And them chains, them chains,

Stripes around my shoulders
Chains around my feet
Stripes around my shoulders
They're about to drag me down
