Heard In The Playground - By Prison Widow

Heard In The Playground - By Prison Widow

Hey! See that boy stood over there
The lad dressed all in black,
His dad's been sent to prison
So he'd better watch his back!
Hey boy! What's your daddy done?
My mum said he is scum!
I bet you'll end up like him
A good for nothing bum!
Don't think that you can talk to me
Or sit with me at lunch,
And if you even look at me
I'll bang you with a punch!
Your dad's an evil jailbird
And he deserves to die,
You'd better stay away from me
Or I will black your eye!
