Slowly the long day turns to night
Soon they'll switch off the prison lights
And in my cell I'm making plans
To be at home with you again

There walls and bars can't hold a dreaming man
So I'll be home to tuck the babies in
They can chain my body but not my mind
So I'll break out again tonight

The warden thinks I'm in for life
All he's ever seen me wear is stripes
He don't know about my blue suit and my tie
That I wear when I'm with you at night

* Refrain
