lyrics

It’s not my fault
You’ll hear what the truth is
Behind my excuses
I meant to call
But I didn’t think you’d wait up
And I got hung up
You gotta admit
It’s been a while
So can I see a smile
Can’t you this time
Instead of a pound of fury
Have an ounce of forgiveness
Maybe I got a problem
Maybe I got a sickness
Everytime I walk through that door

You dispense that Frying Pan Justice
No matter what time I stroll in
I throw myself at the mercy of the court
To be sentenced with a rolling pin

There you stand
A cold-creamed figure
Beacon of justice
It’s out of hand
I was hoping for mercy
Instead I got Stalin
So it goes like this
You play hangman, judge, and jury
As for my innocence
Judge for yourself
I wasn’t cheating
I take the fifth
As I take my beating
Every time I walk through that door

You dispense that Frying Pan Justice
No matter what time I stroll in
I throw myself at the mercy of the court
To be sentenced with a rolling pin
I was sentenced with a rolling pin
Aw shucks not again
I was sentenced with a rolling pin

Marital Bliss
It was all that I hoped for
And I’m still looking for
Something amiss
If it stinks in Denmark
Here its rotten to the core
I was misled
Conned and hoodwinked
There’s a skillet
Shaped like my head
You’re off to bed
Well maybe overnight
Your hard edge will soften
So I’m home late and drunk
Just a little to often
Everytime I walk through that door

You dispense that Frying Pan Justice
No matter what time I stroll in
I throw myself at the mercy of the court
To be sentenced with a rolling pin
I was sentenced with a rolling pin
Aw shucks not again
I was sentenced with a rolling pin
Frying Pan justice
Sentenced with a rolling pin
Frying pan justice
I was sentenced with a rolling pin
