a parody of "The Boy from New York City" by The Ad-Libs
The tale of recently-ousted and newly-convicted ex-Maricopa County (AZ) Sheriff Joe Arpaio, he of "Tent City" infamy, now facing sentencing and hoping for a Pardon from that boy from New York City, Donald Trump. Written and recorded a while back, it's a great backgrounder on "Sheriff Joke"...with a shout-out to the Rhinestone Cowboy, no less...RIP Glen.
