I've been looking for the answer to this question for many years - I had the idea in the back of my mind that the record was by the Coasters

Many thanks

The actual title of this song was (Why Must I Be A) Teenager In Jail. I have a feeling that the group may have been Dion and the Belmonts, perhaps under a pseudonym, spoofing themselves.
