Misdemeanor lyrics

Listen

Never plead guilty to a misdemeanor
In Minnesota
You want to be sure to talk to a lawyer
There oughta be one you can gota
Minnesota it may be greener
The women are taller and the men are leaner
And it is the home of the Hormel wiener
But never plead guilty to a misdemeanor
If you are innocent.

There was a man whose name was Larry,
A pretty good man but he became very
Much an object of suspicion
When he reached under his partition.
He tapped his foot and he did not stop
He reached out and touched a cop.
He may have been looking for a good time
But they charged him with a crime.
