The Lyrics

Back in eighteen ninety-nine
Italian fam'lies sailed here
To one's born an infant son,
In Brooklyn, spanked on the rear
Wee Alphonso G. Ca-pone,
Destined to be well known,
Young Alphonso G. Ca-pone,
Someone the cops will fear

Grows up wild, drops out a' school
To follow an evil route
Best gangbanger on the street
Talks from the side of his mout'
Tough Alphonso G. Ca-pone,
Cuts meat close to Da bone,
Yeah, Alphonso G. Ca-pone,
Nickname's Scarface,..a lout!

Goons for Yale, the mobster..
Sparks ups New York's racketeer crime
Wins promotion very soon
To Chi-ca-go...and big time
Cool Alphonso G. Ca-pone,
Gives D.A.'s a gut groan,
Blunt Alphonso G. Ca-pone,
Is peakin' to his prime


Neighborhood shakes with big noise
One well known Valentine's Day
A massacre that's bloody,
Blows Bugs Moran's mob away
Old Alphonso G. Ca-pone
Keeps fed cops on The-phone,
Sly Alphonso G. Ca-pone
Machine guns speak his say

He runs a prostituition ring,
And boot-legs whis-key and beer
To bust up his stash a' goods,
Untouchables will appear
Old Alphonso G. Ca-pone
They leave, unturned, no stone,
But Alphonso G. Ca-pone
Keeps rollin' in high gear

Opens up soup kitchens,
Helps poor like Robin Hood done
By the crash of "Twenty-nine"
He's Public Enemy One
Big Alphonso G. Ca-pone,
He re-spects his Ma-pone,
Old Alphonso G. Ca-pone,
Chicago's fav'rite son

Nineteen thirty-something
Comes tax evasion and jazz
Send him on a little trip,
To the island, Alcatraz
For Alphonso G. Ca-pone,
Paid for by the Law-pone
Old Alphonso G. Ca-pone
Nice private room, he has

By November, thirty-nine,
He's released and sent on his way
Just a sick and broken man
No longer king of the day
Sick Alphonso G. Ca-pone
Succumbs.. Flor-i-Da home,
Old Alphonso G. Ca-pone
Turns into dust and clay

Today Al's dust and clay

Not familiar with the original melody, though I should be. Still a good bio of Big Al.
