I am not guilty of these crimes
But now you hold me life on the line
I do not have no stolen property
And that’s why, judge, you must let me free

Hear me, court, of my alibi
Home alone, cooking rice, when the popo drop by
They push me down and kick in my doors
The Brixton guns in the hands of the force

You see I got no money and I got little personal property
Why you gotta put me back in lock-up again
So I tell you judge and the jury around you
You gotta set me free

Your honour, you gotta let me go

Got no money to make my bail
Change my address to the county jail
I ask the court, what times are these
When an innocent man chooses bribery

You see I know a story about the judge’s impropriety
Money from the honey to keep up the pen
Well I tell you judge, when the papers surround you
You gotta set me free

Your honour, you gotta let me go


from Bring Five Friends, released May 5, 2016

thirsty. Thirsty for music that is both dangerous and danceable, refreshing as a mojito and as eye-opening as a whiskey sour. A cocktail party mix of reggae, punk rock, jazz, hiphop, and ska. This is Dope Soda.
