Listen please listen
you don't know what you're missing
when you lay your intentions low
you've been mistreated and beated and beated
and these things you've learned to know

I know Mrs. Imagene
we met when I was 3
but that was sometime ago
she was a queen and he would beat her real mean
but those things we didn't know

Listen Mr. listen
you don't know what you're missing
when you lay your conviction down
you've been mistreating by beating and beating
these things in her that she's learned to know

the kids were real young when they saw his long thumb
how were they to know
that she was his slave
when he would misbehave
for how long the sheriff still don't know

He went missing
the day he was sentenced to life without parole
Imagene still remembers
the times he would beat her
and those things we learn to know
