Framed - Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller

    Well I was walking down the street mindin my own affairs
    When two policement come up from behind
    And grabbed me unawares
    They said "You big bad Burton Cummings?"
    I said "Why sure"
    They said "You're the cat we been lookin for"

    Well I was framed
    Framed framed framed I was blamed
    Framed framed framed
    Well I never do nothin
    But I always get framed

    Well they took me to the lineup
    And let those bright lights shine
    There were six poor souls like me
    Standing up there in that line
    The judge got a witness
    And got her way up on the witness stand
    A woman jumped up started screamin
    "That's your man!"


    Well the prosecutin attorney started prosecuting me
    Man, I mean that cat let loose and gave me the third degree
    He says "Where were you on the night of July 16, 1963?"
    I said "I was cruising ... just my sweetie and me..."


    I get framed I get set up
    With circumstantial evidence
    Innocent bystander stand by for me
    I'm gonna need you
