The Lyrics

I have no idea where I got the idea for this one. Probably out of my ass.
How many signs can a man knock down
Before he's caught by the cops?
How many jeeps can a con man sell
Before one goes and blows up?
Yes 'n how many times does a trespasser try
To get that damn dog to shut up?

The answer, my friends, is goin' round the cells
These answers are goin' round the cells

Yes 'n how many years can a diamond be safe
Before it is lost to some thieves?
Yes 'n how many years can a debtor be safe
Before a mob man breaks his knees?
Yes 'n how many times does a camera turn round
'Till the criminals cannot be seen?

These answers, good friends, are goin' round the cells
More answers are goin' round the cells

Yes 'n how many times must a crim foul up
Before he completes the crime?
Yes 'n how many keys can one crim have
Before he gets lockpicks right?*
Yes 'n how many crimes will it take 'til they're bored
And pay for law school with their prize?

These answers, and more, are goin' round the cells
The cell keys are goin' round the cells
* 'Getting them right' as in 'getting the hang of the damn things.'

Too bad the criminal round for Ages wasn't in the 60's this one would have been a contender for sure, good ideas.

And how much grafitti can one punk spray before he runs out of paint? Good one - you didn't just pull it out of your a$$.

(Artistry) Very interesting parody here, TCOP...sometimes the best parodies are the ones pulled out from ---you know where.

Cell block five. Better to pull one from your *** than the alternative.

(Artistry) Hmm, I think you struggled a bit with Bobby dude, I loved your intro comment though, as long as that's not the body part that sings it of course. "Crim" for Criminal was kinda awkward, but hey, it's Bob Dylan, so I'll let it slide ;)
