About “Jailer”

Created by oyafemi2 1 year ago

The second single from her self titled 2007 album Asa, “Jailer” is a song addressing different forms of societal oppressors. Asa presents this song as a sort of protest made by the oppressed against both literal and figurative jailers with a depiction of actual prison guards, employers and governments. Her strong vocals over the indie/jazzy melody is almost certain to make a listener bob to every drum beat and piano chord while wondering who this jailer is.

Lyrics

Annotate tap

VERSE
She points out to the jailer that excluding him going home to his families, there isn't much difference between them

I'm in chains, you’re in chains too I wear uniforms And you wear uniforms too I'm a prisoner You’re a prisoner too, Mr. Jailer, oh! I have fears, you have fears too I will die, but yourself will die too Life is beautiful Don’t you think so too, Mr. Jailer?
I'm in chains, you’re in chains too
I wear uniforms
And you wear uniforms too
I'm a prisoner
You’re a prisoner too, Mr. Jailer, oh!
I have fears, you have fears too
I will die, but yourself will die too
Life is beautiful
Don’t you think so too, Mr. Jailer?
 
 

CHORUS
Telling him to stop ridiculing her for her sins...seeing has he has his own too

I'm talking to you jailer! Stop calling me a prisoner Let he who is without sin Be the first to cast the stone Mr. Jailer, Mr. Jailer man
I'm talking to you jailer!
Stop calling me a prisoner
Let he who is without sin
Be the first to cast the stone
Mr. Jailer, Mr. Jailer man
 
 

BRIDGE
Watch what you do is what you will get

If you walking in a market place Don’t throw stones Even if you do, you just might hit One of your own Life is not about your policies All the time So you better rearrange your philosophies And be good to your fellow man
If you walking in a market place
Don’t throw stones
Even if you do, you just might hit
One of your own
Life is not about your policies
All the time
So you better rearrange your philosophies
And be good to your fellow man
 
 

OUTRO
What ever your dreams, a life of crime could put a stop to it

I hear my baby say I want be president I want your money From my government What he don’t know What he would know What he can know Jailer, jailer Be good, be good, be good...
I hear my baby say
I want be president
I want your money
From my government
What he don’t know
What he would know
What he can know
Jailer, jailer
Be good, be good, be good...
