On a Monday Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
On a Monday, I was arrested
On a Tuesday, I was locked up in jail
On a Wednesday, my trial was attested
On a Thursday, nobody would go my bail
Verse 2
Almost done, I'm almost done, almost done
And I ain't gonna bring them yellow women no pail
Verse 3
Take these stripes, stripes from around my shoulder
Take these chains, these chains from around my legs
Lord, these stripes, it sure don't worry me
But these chains, these chain's gonna kill me dead
Verse 4
Yes, I'm almost done, almost done, almost done
And I ain't gonna bring them yellow women no pail
Verse 5
On Friday, my baby went a-walking
On a Saturday, she locked me outta the door
On a Sunday, we were sitting down a-talking
Verse 6
On a Monday, she pawned all of my clothes
