The Lyrics

We keep the balls a rollin'
And rumblin' down the lane
Another "Seven-Ten" split
It's drivin' us insane,
We're stuck in Bowl Some Prison,
And nothin' could be worse
Our sentence is hard bowlin'
The Judge's kegler curse..

With brown eyed girlfriend Sally,
And best friend, Bennie Cole
Held up a bowling alley,
Two thousand bucks bankroll,
Now we're stuck in Bowl Some Prison,
Judge Everett's big brainstorm,
Ten years of constant bowlin'
They call it jail reform..

While trustee cons are strollin'
Or just lyin' in their cell
We keep the big balls rollin'
I'm tellin' you it's hell..
Wish we could scale that gray wall
There's gotta' be a way
Try to bowl a game three hundred,
They'll let us skip a day.

All this bowlin' drives us crazy,
Hear the pins fall in our sleep.
Much rather pull a chain gang,
Or just dig in ditches deep..
Can't stand this Bowl Some Prison,
Our nerves are at the hub
Next time we'll plan things better,
And rob a stripper club..

Although this has nothing to do with your parody other than its title, I discovered a brand of jeans, jackets and other denim clothing called "Prison Blues". I bought two pairs of jeans at a store that also sells Carhartt clothing, Wolverine boots, and other garments worn by farmers, construction workers, mechanics and the like, and I was told that they were made by prisoners at a correctional facility in Oregon. As for your parody, I give you 5s.
