Let me out
 Sorry son
 Commit a crime, pay the price 

 Death row, What's that 'No stay?'
Oh! Ok I'll tell him

Dead man walking 

We've all been detained 
For the crimes we've committed 
They stayed execution
But we'll never get acquitted  Waiting for the day when they strap us in
And when they pull the lever 
Hear the goddamn screams
 Shake with fear
 Electric chair

We're all inside  Homicide related
They'll show no mercy 
And we don't anticipate it
We move a little closer
 Every day to meet our maker 
They cover up our face
And then they close the circuit breaker
Oh! No!

 Shake with fear
Your time draws near

Oh! No! I won't go
You'll never get me down to
 Death row

Oh come on man
Give me a break 
I made one mistake, that's all it takes 
I ain't that bad
I ain't done nothing wrong

 Shake with fear
The end is near

Oh! No! I won't go
You'll never get me down to
 Death row
Oh! No! They're taking me slow
One way ticket to 
 Death row

So what's the matter son
Too young to die
Take it like a man
Don't cry
Ha! Ha! Ha!

Oh! No! I won't go
You'll never get me down to
 Death row

Say a prayer, best beware 
It's not very nice in the electric chair

Oh! No! I won't go
You'll never get me down to
 Death row
Oh! No! They're taking me slow
One way ticket to 
 Death row
