Monday she got me arrested,
On Tuesday up in jail,

Thursday she posted my bail,
Friday we went walking,
Saturday I was outta my door,
On Sunday we was talkin,
Back on Monday she pawned all my clothes

The way she shake that thing, bambalam
Oh she make me sing, bambalam

You know that's no lie, bambalam
