The Youngsters – Christmas In Jail

I thought I would get a little demented this Christmas. Of course, the song never charted but was played on the Dr. Demento show and is also played on The Bob and Tom show. The song was released in October of 1956.

Christmas In Jail

Christmas in jail
Christmas in jail
Had a little too much to drink
Ain’t got no bail
Ain’t got no bail
And spendin’ New Year’s Eve in the clink.

I was in the wrong lane
Feelin’ no pain
Zoomed my car to seventy-five
Ran right into
You can guess who
And say I’m lucky to be alive.

Merry Christmas!
Happy New Year!

They’re singin’ down the street
While everybody’s havin’ Christmas turkey
They give me bread and water to eat.

Christmas in jail
Christmas in jail
Wore my shoes out pacin’ the floor
Got rocks in my head
I wish I was dead
Ain’t gonna drink and drive no more.

Merry Christmas!
Happy New Year!

They’re singin’ down the street
While everybody’s havin’ Christmas turkey
They give me bread and water to eat.

Christmas in jail
Christmas in jail
Wore my shoes out pacin’ the floor
Got rocks in my head
I wish I was dead
Ain’t gonna drink and drive no more
Ain’t gonna drink and drive no more
Ain’t gonna drink and drive no more.

Merry Christmas!
Hic! Hic! Hic!
