I was walkin' down the street
Mindin' my own affair
When two police grabbed me
Unaware
They says, 'Your name, Henry? '
I says, 'Why sho'
He says, 'You the boy I been lookin' for'

I was framed
Framed, I was blamed
Fra-a-amed
Well, I never knew nothin'
But I always get framed
Oh, framed

(short guitar riff)

Spoken:

They took him in the line up
And let those bright lights shine
There was ten poor souls
Like me in that line
I knew I was a victim
Of someone's evil plan
When a stool-pigeon walked in
And says;
(sings) 'That's your man! '

I was framed
Framed, I was blamed
Oh, framed, framed, framed
Well, I never knew nothin'
But I always get framed

(short guitar riff)

Spoken:

Well, the prosecuting attorney
Stared-a prosecutin' me
Man, that cat didn't give me the one
But the, third degree
He says, 'Where were you
On the night, July 19, 1953? '
'Man, I was just home, just-a
Tweedle-e-dee'.

(sings)
I was framed
Oh, framed, I was blamed
Oh, framed, framed, framed
Well, I never knew nothin'
But I always get framed
Oh, framed

Oh, framed.
