In the Belly of the Beast

In the belly of the beast I drank salt water and did my time
In the belly of the beast I drank salt water and did my time
Got three days in solitary
For leaving the scene of a crime

Met a man in Joppa said he need me to do a favor for him
Met a man in Joppa said he need me to do a favor for him
this man dont take no for an answer
So I slipped away in the evening

Went down to the docks throw my scent off his trail
Went down to the docks throw my scent off his trail
Found a boat heading over yonder
And the crew was setting sail

Paid my passage below deck I stowed
Paid my passage below deck I stowed
But them waves came crashing
Them sailors took my money threw me over board

In the belly of the beast I drank salt water and did my time
In the belly of the beast I drank salt water and did my time
Got three days in solitary
For leaving the scene of a crime
