The Lyrics

Out of work, couldn't find a job.Only choice was to steal and rob
Got myself a 44, went down to the liquor store.
Said,"Put the money in the sack.",there was a camera in the back.
I was on film with a gun in my hand, when I left, they called the man.
Cops came knocking on my door, said come on out and lay on the floor.
Hauled me in to see the judge, he hated robbers, he had a grudge.
He gave me twenty years, I left the courtroom almost in tears.
Sent upstate to the Pen, Met Big Bubba and I cried again.

Now, I'm boned in the USA. Boned in the USA
Not much else, I can say, cause I'm boned in the USA

All day long I stamp out licenses plates, when evening comes, Bubba waits.
For me to return to cell block ten, Bubba meets me with a grin.
I take a shower carefully, dropping the soap can traumatic for me.
When I write home, I almost cry, because I ask for more K-Y

Cause I'm boned in the USA, boned in the USA.
Bubba wants it every day, so I get boned in the USA.

Pacing conservatives are sure to knock you on this one, but in my mind I just played it to the main verse tune of this song as anybody really should. I'm willing to debate with anyone who's going to whine about pacing, I'll tell you that. I was laughing out loud, the line about asking for more KY was a climax. I think the subject of prison 'affairs' is a favorite for people to mock, and you did well.

I'm ashamed of myself for missing this one eariler. Well said, good job, no complaints on the pacing. Let the right wingers chew on that one! Almost forgot: 555

The pacing is good but I think the 'pacing conservatives' would be the ones to cheer about prison rape. Right wingers love to watch war on TV and they love these 'prison b****' stories too.
