Lyrics:

7 warrants out for your arrest

now you turn it into

a Facebook contest

Did you lose at sports?

Did you not make homecoming court?

Will the police let you have your fun?

But you’re still on the run.

And you promised,

it’s time to do your time

‘Cause your wanted

[wanted]

and you’ve got 15,000 likes

Torrington will find you

hope you like wearing stripes

‘Cause you’re wanted

[wanted]

and you’ve got 15,000 likes

15,000 likes

It’s up to 21,000 likes

Turn yourself in tonight
