THEY HELD ME DOWN (Silverstein) Shel Silverstein - 1978 INTRO: "This next song is dedicated to all the cop-outs in the world. My friends mostly.........including me." It was Sat night at the slammer The gavel was falling like a hammer As they dragged in every freak From off the road One by one they entered the cell And the stories that they had to tell Were all different But all seemed to end on the very same note "They held me down and they put it on my nose They even sprinkled a little bit on my clothes Yeah… I know what you're thinkin But I ain't one of those No… they held me down and put it in my nose." This wino in the corner got up and shook himself out…. He said, "Well they held me down and poured it down my throat That's what they did. They even planted the bottle in my coat Anybody want some? Yeah… the reason why my pants so wet Is they pushed me off the boat After they held me down and poured it down my throat." And this chick in the next cell… She said, "I heard you guys talking And let me tell you something… He held me down and he put it you know where Ohhhh… I told him I was a virgin But he didn't care Noooo… the pig! Ahhhh… you see his wallet's in my purse. What's it doing there? He held me down and put it you know where." And then this cat got up. Well… he half got up. He lifted his head and, He said, "Hey, man… hey held me down and they put it in my vein. They even held a pistol to my brain Or I wouldn'ta done it Ohhh.. these scars on my arms are where I crashed through the window pane… Tryin' to get awaaaaaaaaay When they held me down and put it in my vein." And then this cat.. a rollie-eyed cat in a raincoat, and shoes And the bottom of his pants were cut off at the knees He said, "She held me down and put it in my face. Oh, the disgrace. And that's the fact on which I'm gonna base my case. She was overweight and underage. And we was at my place. But she held me down and put it in my face." They held me down and made me write this song..........
