The Lyrics

It's hell to be a convict
But, so much tougher still
When the warden is a woman
Who's into fancy frill
We're stuck in Wholesome Prison
And life's a dainty bitch
Clean and fresh, what a bummer
We got that hard time itch..

There's curtains on the cell doors
And knick knacks on the wall
Blue stuff in the toilets
Room freshener in the hall
We got spotless sinks and mirrors
Pastel colored cups
We're afraid that any minute
Rich Simmons might show up...

Around the yard's barbed wire
Clingin' vines and roses bloom
Feels sort a' like we're livin'
In Martha Stewart's room
Oh, we're stuck in Wholesome Prison
Good reason to be free
All the cons are talkin' break out,
Can't stand the potpourri

It's a tortured incarceration
Ain't allowed no dirt and grime
We 're all puttin' in for transfers
Even if they add more time
Far from Wholesome Prison
Some normal joint to stay
Where there ain't no decorations
Just lots of plain old gray

Where there ain't no decorations
Just lots of plain old gray...

555, I can see the prisoners pain, although I don't feel sorry for them.

I had some surfing problems this morning, downloading some pages took forever etc, but a doublepost with 25 minutes apart has got to be some sort of record! :-)

If only Johnny Cash had lived to see this. It's a WHOLE lot better than my own song of the same title. (It was about John Ashcroft, and it's not worth looking up. I was still learning how to do this stuff at the time.)

I was just itchin' fer a good wholesome laff. This is the ticket!

Thanks, Michael....I used search before submission and nothing came up...If it had I'd have given you "First Title" recognition....I ran "Google" to find it....Good job on the Ashcroft parody...

I'm in a cell for 22 hours a day. Today I had my bunky distract the guard while we were on library liberty and I got to the front desk computer. I just hit a bunch of keys and then pressed dot (.) com and viola I landed on this song. You should be so BOLD as to poke fun at us poor interns. But I did get some laughs from the song parody what you wrote. My uncle was in Folsom when Johnny visited but he smacked a guard with a spoon 'cause another bunky blocked his view and some kind of altercation developed. Last I seen him he was bein' dragged away screamin'. There is so much I want to say but the ... uh uh uh-oh the guard just spotted me an... cough gasp ouch...
