Lyrics

JURY DUTY

I GOT SOMETHING IN THE MAIL THAT MADE ME NERVOUS
IT WAS A SUMMONS TO APPEAR FOR JURY SERVICE
(NO MORE JURY SERVICE )
SUPERIOR COURT DOWN IN MALIBU
AIN?T NOTHIN IN THE WORLD THAT I CAN DO
ALL I KNOW 'BOUT LAW I LEARNED FROM JUDGE JUDY
HOW MY GONNA FREE MYSELF FROM JURY DUTY?

THEY GOT MY NAME FROM A VOTER'S LIST
GOT TO TELL YOU RIGHT NOW
I'M REALLY PISSED
IF I DON'T SHOW UP THEY'LL FINE ME 1500 BUCKS
I CAN TELL YOU RIGHT NOW THIS REALLY SUCKS
ALL I KNOW 'BOUT LAW I LEARNED FROM JUDGE JUDY
HOW MY GONNA FREE MYSELF FROM JURY DUTY?

IF IT'S A TRIAL LIKE OJ OR ROBERT BLAKE
SITTIN? MONTHS IN A COURTROOM IS MORE
THAN I CAN TAKE
BESIDES THEY ONLY GIVE YOU 15 BUCKS A DAY
I GUESS THEY REALLY MEAN IT
CRIME DOESN'T PAY
ALL I KNOW 'BOUT LAW I LEARNED FROM JUDGE JUDY
HOW MY GONNA FREE MYSELF FROM JURY DUTY?

I COULD SAY THAT I?M A RACIST
I COULD SAY I?M INSANE
I COULD SAY I?M SUICIDAL
I GOT WATER ON THE BRAIN
I COULD SAY THAT I?M A LEPER
OR I?M RIDDLED WITH GOUT
THE ONLY ONES WHO SERVE
ARE THE ONES WHO CAN'T GET OUT
ALL I KNOW 'BOUT LAW I LEARNED FROM JUDGE JUDY
HOW MY GONNA FREE MYSELF FROM JURY DUTY?
ALL I KNOW 'BOUT LAW I LEARNED FROM JUDGE JUDY
HOW MY GONNA FREE MYSELF FROM JURY DUTY?

(spoken)
AH MAN NOT ANOTHER JURY SUMMONS
DIDN?T I GET ONE OF THEM LIKE
FIVE OR TEN YEARS AGO
AND HERE?S ONE AGAIN
MAN I THINK I RIPPED THE LAST ONE UP
I THINK I THREW IT OUT
I DIDN?T SEE IT , I NEVER GOT IT
MAYBE I SHOULD GO OUT AND SHOOT SOMEBODY
AND THAT WAY SOMEBODY ELSE
WILL GET A JURY SUMMONS
LIKE ONE OF MY FRIENDS
THEN THEY?D BE ON MY JURY
AND THEY?D FIND ME INNOCENT
THEN EVERYTHING WOULD BE COOL
MAYBE WE COULD EVEN SPLIT THE 15 BUCKS
YEAH THAT?S THE WAY TO GO
HELP JUDGE WAPNER
HELP ME JUDGE JUDY
JUDGE JOE BROWN
WHERE YOU AT
