Twenty-one nights of torture,
Twenty-one nights of fear,
Twenty-one days in jail
And nobody seems to care.
Twenty-one days of torture,
Twenty-one nights of fear,
I got twenty-one days in jail,
Nobody seems to care.

Well, I'm waiting for your letter.
Just a simple word or two.
Then I know it won't be long
Till I'll be home with you.
Twenty-one days of torture,
Twenty-one nights of fear,
I got twenty-one days in jail,
Nobody seems to care
No-one cares... rock!

Well, I finally got your letter,
You did what I wanted you to do.
Now I know it won't be long
Till I'll be home with you.
Twenty-one days of torture,
Twenty-one nights of fear,
I got twenty-one days in jail,
Nobody seems to care.
Ah, set me free!

Twenty-one days of torture,
Twenty-one nights of fear,
Twenty-one days in jail,
Nobody seems to care.
Twenty-one days of torture,
Twenty-one nights of fear,
I got twenty-one days in jai,l
Nobody seems to care.
I got twenty-one days in jail,
Nobody seems to care.
