RIOT IN CELL BLOCK NUMBER NINE

JULY 27, 1973, I WAS SERVING MY TIME FOR ARMED ROBBERY
IT WAS THREE O CLOCK IN THE MORNING
I WAS TRYING TO SLEEP IN MY CELL
WHEN I HEARD THE WHISTLE BLOW I HEARD SOMEBODY YELL

THERE'S A RIOT GOING ON (3X)
UP IN CELL BLOCK NUMBER NINE.

ALL THE TROUBLE STARTED IN CELL BLOCK NUMBER FOUR
IT SPREAD LIKE FIRE ALL ACROSS THE PRISON FLOOR
I SAID OK, BOYS, GET READY TO RUN
HERE COMES THE WARDEN WITH A TOMMY GUN

THE WARDEN SAID COME OUT BOYS, PUT YOUR HANDS UP IN THE AIR
IF YOU DON'T STOP THIS RIOT YOU ALL GONNA GET THE CHAIR
MR. X SAID IT'S TOO LATE TO QUIT
PASS THE DYNAMITE CAUSE THE FUSE IS LIT

IN THE 47TH HOUR THE TEARGAS FINALLY GOT OUR MEN
WE'RE STILL BACK IN THEM DAMN CELLS, BUT EVERY NIGHT AGAIN
