The Broadway Musical Lyrics
Bonnie & Clyde the Musical - You're Going Back to Jail Lyrics

We can't spend our whole lives hiding, Buck
That ain't no way to live
It is time to wipe the slate clean
Ask the good Lord to forgive (praise the lord)
You've got to serve your sentence without fail
Buck, you are join' back to jail.

BUCK (spoken):
What the hell are you talkin about?!

Won't be scared to turn a corner
(That's right) or to open our front door
When you're on the side of justice you ain't nervous of the law
Now pull yourself together because you've gone pale
Buck you are goin' back to jail.

BUCK (spoken):
Baby, you don't know what it's like in there!

I know it's hard to share a cell
When you've got nothin' to look at except prisoners who smell
But when you're done when you have served your time
We'll still be young and in our prime

Ain't been free more than a minute
Ain't had time to change my shirt
I been dreamin' of a hot meal with you as my dessert
Bring your face close to mine and just let me inhale

Buck you are goin' back to jail.

BUCK (spoken):
Now baby-

BLANCHE (spoken):
We will call the sheriff and tell him you are turning
yourself in right after church tomorrow.

BUCK (spoken):

BLANCHE (spoken):
It's gonna be just as hard on me, daddy, well, Stella,
you know what it's like havin' a husband in jail,
tell him how hard it is not havin' Carl around!

STELLA (spoken):
Are you kiddin'?!
(sung) It's a treat to get my nails done,
And have time to read a book
Sure beats washin' his long johns,
It's a pleasure not to cook (Okay, that's enough)
Thank God those prison walls are much too tall to scale
My darlin's nice and safe in jail.

BUCK (spoken):
I don't want her comin' 'round here no more.

BLANCHE (spoken):
Well, Trish's husband's been in jail for two years now
And she's miserable without her man!

TRISH (spoken):
(sung) At first I really missed him I thought I would waste away
Then I met this boy from Tucson
And he owned a Chevrolet (Oh no)
He had a lot of things that my Joe lacked (Okay Trish)
Like teeth and hair and cash to be exact (I think you're done)
I now got lots of habits I can't curtail (Heavens to Betsy)
I've got to keep him locked in jail

Keep 'em inside, keep 'em inside
If we see 'em once a month we will be more than satisfied
Ain't that the truth, don't mean to be unkind
Can't put a price on peace of mind (Blanche!)

I ain't like these other women
I will wait till kingdom come
I want the world to see
That I ain't married to some bum (that's right)
It will be hard for us but we'll come through

I can't believe what you are askin' me to do

One thing's for certain I don't want
(Oh my Lord) (Jesus close your eyes)

BUCK (spoken):
Blanche I ain't join' back

Yes Buck, you're join' back

Tomorrow he'll be back in jail

[Thanks to Admirer for lyrics]
