Thread Name: Lyr Req: Roaches and Bedbugs?
Subject: RE: Roaches and Bedbugs?
From My Childhood:

Six o'clock in the morning I was standing on the corner not doing any harm
When along came a policeman and grabbed me by the arm.
He took me round the corner and he rang a little bell.
The next thing I knew, I was in the county jail.

Six o'clock in the morning, I looked upon the wall.
The roaches and the bedbugs were having a game of ball.
The score was six to zero and the roaches were ahead,
A bedbug hit a homer and knocked me out of bed.

Six o'clock in the morning, a keeper came around
And served you mashed potatoes that almost knocked you down
The coffee tastes like tobacco juice and the bread is always stale
And that's the way they treat you in the county jail.
