Song Description

Even though the offending party in this love affair is "under arrest," she will not go to jail; the arresting party will be the prosecutor, the judge and the defense counsel, and will advise the jury to merge the lives of the parties involved.

Story Behind the Song

This the story of a broken love affair or marriage that can be repaired.

Lyrics



You're Under Arrest


You're under arrest for the murder of our love
You're under arrest for all the heartaches that you've caused
You're under arrest but you won't go to jail
You're under arrest but darling I will go your bail

You're under arrest; what you've done is a felony
The way you stole my heart you ought to be charged with robbery
You're under arrest... robbery, grand larceny
You're under arrest so darling quietly come with me

Come quietly with me and face your day in court
I am the prosecutor, I'm also the judge
And I will defend you so you won't get no time
I'll advise the jury to merge your life with mine

But you're under arrest; you're still holding the smoking gun
You're under arrest; look at the damage that you've done
You're under arrest; girl you've run, you've had your fun
Now you're under arrest, and the charge is murder one

Girl you're under arrest, and I'm a-taking you in alive
You don't need a lawyer cause the law is on your side
You're under arrest; I've got your picture on a WANTED sign
You're under arrest, now darling your behind is mine

START UP BEAT TEMPO HERE:

You're under arrest! Yes you are girl, for the murder of our love
You're under arrest! My darling, for all the heart aches that you've caused
You're under arrest! My sweet thing, but you won't go to jail
You're under arrest! My darling, but I will go your bail
You're under arrest! Yes you are girl, what you've done is a felony
You're under arrest! My sweet thing, so just quietly come with me

Come quietly with me, girl; face your day in court
I am the prosecutor, and I am the judge
And I will defend you so you won't get no time
I'll advise the jury to merge your life with mine

But you're under arrest! Bang, bang, girl; you're holding the smoking gun
You're under arrest! My darling, and the charge is murder one
You're under arrest! Stick um up, girl; I'm a-taking you in alive
You're under arrest! Yes you are child, but the law is on your side
You're under arrest! Smile pretty, girl; gonna put your picture on a WANTED sign
You're under arrest! My sweet thing; and now your behind is mine

You're under arrest! Cause I love you
You're under arrest! Cause I need you
You're under arrest! To protect you
You're under arrest! To get next to you

You're under arrest!!
