Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Well, the commenters who predicted Leo would do time for his alleged tax problems got their wish...
I see a bad dude arising
I see stubble on his face
I see hurt, aches, it's frightnin'
I see sad time to waste

Won't go a round in spite
With the clown who fakes a right
There's a bad dude I despise

I fear furry things a-growing
I know the friends I've won are few
I fear shiv-ers' probes a-glowing
I hear the boys a-makin' woo

No goin' out at night
Well, I'm bound and caged up tight
With a bad dude I despise

All night!

Hopeless rotters linked to fetters
Dopes doing time and scared to die
Looks like my cellmate's a bedwetter
Hope I can wake to keep mine dry

Won't crow a sound at night
'Cause he's bound to wake and fight
There's a bad dude I despise

Don't break the laws they write
Or you're bound to share my plight
With a bad dude you'll despise

Leo - thanks for pointing me to this. I was worth the read. My dad spent 10 years in the county jail. Not what you think - he worked there as deputy warden. He would get paid every other Friday and during the summer he often took me there when he picked up his paycheck. I'm pretty sure I've seen the guy in this parody. My dad got me scared straight of jail. He worked the night shift and warned me that if I ever got into trouble and thrown in jail I had better hope that he was not on duty when the cops brought me in and I believed him. He was a hard nosed Italian just like that sheriff in Maricopa County, Phoenix. Az. Joe Arpaio. Fine write!
