True story about a time I spent in Rehab under the supervision of Nuns and other 'reformed' alcoholics.


3. Five Dollar Fine (c) M Cummins

February seven, two thousand and twelve
Checked into rehab, to get professional help
Stopped at the front door, they took my mobile phone
Said don't talk to the women, yeah leave them babes alone

Or it's a five dollar fine
It's a five dollar fine
If your messing round with them ladies
Lay your money on the line

Woke up next morning, about half past eight
No time for breakfast, no time to meditate
Went out for a smoke, there was nothin else to do
The nurse said hey mister, I need to talk to you

Cos its a five dollar fine
Its a five dollar fine
Smoking at the back door
Lay your money on the line

Later on that evening, it was getting kinda late
I was waiting for a red lady, to finish my straight
Ten to ace of diamonds, I was waiting for the queen
The dealer turned the card and I heard somebody scream

That's a five dollar fine,
Yeah that's a five dollar fine
Gambling in your jammies !!!?
Lay your money on the line

Now I aint got no money, by the time they take the rent
Buy myself a coffee and a packet of cigarettes
Now I aint been mis behaving, outside the back door
Messin round with them ladies, who keep coming back for more

Cos that's a five dollar fine
That's a five dollar fine
So pay the five dollar fine boy
Lay your money down on the line
