Oh, Why - Little Richard

Oh, Why

Little Richard

(Scott, SPECIALTY SP-100, 1957)

I dreamed I was arrested and charged with a crime
Forgot to plead innocent 'cause darling you're not mine
Oh, why
Why should it happen to me
Well I'm fine with it
Have have mercy on me

The policeman said maybe the judge he can agree
The jury keep on guessing
But the DA says its me
Oh, why
Why should it happen to me
Well I'm fine with it
Have have mercy on me

The lawyer said plead guilty
And try to cop a plea
But why should I try plea guilty
When you don't belongs to me.

Oh, why
Why should it happen to me
Well I'm fine with it
Have have mercy on me

The policeman said maybe the judge he can agree
The jury keep on guessing
But the DA says its me
Oh, why
Why should it happen to me
Well I'm fine with it
Have have mercy on me
