Lucky Dube Prisoner Lyrics

Last updated: 10/09/2013 08:21:59 AM

Somebody told me about it,
When i was still a little boy
He said to me, crime does not pay.
He said to me, education is the key, yeah.
As a little boy i thought i know what i was doing, yeah man.
But today here i'm in jail

Chorus
I'm a prisoner 3*
(prisoner)

I looked all around me but to see nothing

But for the grey walls staring at me

The policeman said to me, son

They won't build no schools anymore
All they build will be prisons, prisons (2*)
They won't build no schools anymore
All they build will be prisons, prisons

chorus
Cause today yeah,
i'm a prisoner 3*
(prisoner)
(Dear lord)
Dear lord

I asked the policeman and said
How much must i pay for my freedom?
He said to me, son
yeah

They won't build no schools anymore
(2*)
They won't build no hospitals

All they build will be prisons, prisons (3*)

All they build will be..
Chorus
I'm a prisoner 3*
(prisoner)
(Dear lord)
yes i'm
Dear lord
Yes

fades until the end.
