They took my baby to Holloway jail
They took my baby, down Holloway jail
She was a lady when she went in
Now she's in jail and it's giving me hell

She was just succeedin' in the city
She was just beginning to excel
And then a spiv named Frankie Simes
Led her to a life of crime
And led her on the downward trail

Frankie came home late from work one evening
The C.I.D. were hot on his trail
Frankie promised everything
And then he went and turned her in
She went and took the rap for him
Now she's impaled in Holloway jail

They took my baby, down Holloway jail
They took my baby to Holloway jail
There ain't no pity, there ain't no bail
And she assures me that it's livin' hell

She was young and ever so pretty
Now she looks so old and pale
She never sees the day
She wastes her life away
Sitting in that prison cell

They took my baby to Holloway jail
They locked my baby in Holloway jail
She was a lady when she went in
Now she's in jail and it's givin' me hell
She's impaled in Holloway jail
