The Lyrics

Tony pours cement at the docks
Clients who don’t pay
They all sink like rocks
That’s tough, so tough

Gino leaves the construction gate
Having broke some legs
For paying up late
Warning, mourning

They say: You’ve got to pay up, like it or not
We gotta make a living and we don’t ask a lot
Be glad we don’t take all that you got
To live, don’t say you forgot

Oh, it’s only fair
Oh, oh, we just want our share
We break legs; you’d better beware
We just want our share

Tony’s in the defendant’s chair
But he knows he’ll win
He is not the least bit scared
To fall, at all

Gino paid a witness to lie
She’ll do what she’s told
Gino whispered, maybe you won’t die

If you just shut up you won’t get shot
You choose to go on living or you can choose to not
There’s really no shame in being bought
For life, you’ll thank us a lot

Oh, we’re everywhere
Oh, oh, you’d better beware
Help us out; we’ll spare you, we swear
Oh, oh, cross us if you dare
What could be more fair?
Oh, we have no problem reaching our goal
Even the police force is on our payroll

Oh, please don’t be scared
Oh, oh, we are more than fair
All we want is to get our fair share
Oh, oh, we’re nice guys, we swear

Oh, it’s only fair
Oh, oh, we just want our share
We break legs; you’d better beware
We just want our share

Hey NT - I had a word with the Don and he is willing to cut you in on some of this action for a nominal fee.

In case you are wondering, I was shouted out by McKludge because I have an entire portfolio of mob parodies. Carmine was created in one of the first mob parodies to the OS "Piano Man" as "Paisano Man".

I'm glad to see another writer pick up on mob satire. Well done. Write more or Carmine might just break-a you face. =;-)

I didn't know this was a popular topic. I was afraid of offending someone, but since I'm Italian-American myself, I figured I could get away with it. Make me miss da days o' my yout', back in Sout' Philly, when Little Nicky Scarfo was around..........

NT - I'm a half breed myself. Eastern European on my moms side. All my grandparents were from the old country and I grew up in near that other Pennsylvania city that starts with a "P". Yeah Philly - where dey say - "Hey whose coat is dis jacket ovah eah"? Read some of my parodies on the mob. I use the "D" word in some of them. No one is ever offended. Go hog wild - I love it!

Townie, please don't be afraid of offending someone here. I'm not saying it won't ever happen, but don't be afraid of it.
