The Lyrics

"Start Parole"

Start parole, that’s what I’m gonna do,
gonna stroll from stir and start anew,
This time I’ll get it right
when stealing stuff in the night.

Tarts I’ll roll, ’cause I know cops ignore
it when told, somebody’s robbed a whore.
the girls get no justice,
but I’ll count on this.

Oh! In the street they’re milling, ever willing …
Clever! A score combined with a gain is thrilling!

Now I see, the street’s the place to do
robbery, and get some lovin’ too …
from stores and homes I stole
now I just streets patrol.

© Stan Hall ... Hoagy Carmichael/Frank Loesser were the OS composer/lyricist. Don't you just hate trying to pick an "original performer" for an everybody's-sung-it classic like this?

Stan - good job on this parody and Carmine is quite serious about getting you gainfully employed. Take him up on it - it's a piece of cake and by the way this was quite original. I like what you did with it.
