Framed
-- Jerry Lieber, Mike Stoller

I was walkin' down the street
Mindin' my own affair
When two policemen grabbed me, unaware
They said "Your name Herbie?" I said "Why sure"
"You're just the boy we've been lookin´ for"

Framed, I was framed
I never do nothin' wrong
But I always get framed
Framed

They put me in a line up and let them bright lights shine
There were ten poor souls like me standin' in that line
I knew I was the victim of some evil plan
When a stool pidgeon walked in and says "That´s the man"

Framed, I was framed
I never do nothin' wrong
But I always get framed
Framed

The prosecutor turned and started prosecutin´ me
Man, that cat gave me the third degree
He says "Where were you on the night of June 29?"
I said "I was home in bed" and he said "Judge this man is lyin' "

Framed, I was framed
I never do nothin' wrong
But I always get framed
Framed

I deny the charges of robbin' a liquor store
I deny the charges of carryin' a forty-four
I deny the charges of vagrancy, too
But when the judge came down,
Poured whiskey on my head,
Turned me around to the jury and said convict this man he's
drunk What could I do?

Framed, I was framed
I never do nothin' wrong
But I always get framed
Framed

I was framed
I was framed
I was framed
