The Lyrics

In the 2005 Family Guy episode "Fast Times at Buddy Cianci Jr. High", there was a cutaway gag parodying the TV show Oz which showed prisoners singing a parody of a song from The Wizard of Oz. I've expanded that into a full song, using the original verse from the cutaway gag as part of the lyrics. I've done something like this before, expanding the lyrics to "Where Everything Has Stayed the Same" (from the Ferns segment of a Bill Nye the Science Guy episode about dinosaurs) based on the extended version of the Cheers theme "Where Everybody Knows Your Name", and making two parodies of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" incorporating lyrics from AT&T/DirecTV ads that aired during the 2017 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament. Here I used the full version of "Merry Old Land of Oz" as the basis for this parody, Credit to Seth MacFarlane for the inspiration to this and the original cutaway gag. Note that this is a joke song and does not accurately describe what goes on in the show, which was the point of the original cutaway gag.
La la la
Lo lo lo
And a couple of ooh la las
That's how we sing the day away
In the merry old land of Oz

Buzz, buzz, buzz
Clip, clip, clip
And a couple of long mustache(s)
That's how they all get new hairdos
In the merry old land of Oz

We get up when the warden says we must
We're in here for varying lengths, varies by bust
Jolly good fun

La la la
Lo lo lo
And a couple of ooh la las
That's how we sing the day away
In the merry old land of Oz

La la la
Lo lo lo
And a couple of ooh la las
That's how we sing the day away
In the merry old land of Oz

La la la
Lo lo lo
And a couple of ooh la las
That's how we sing the day away
In the merry old land, merry old land, merry old land, merry old land

Shoot, shoot here
Shoot, shoot there
We're all playing basketball
It's fun and games in the courtyard
In the merry old land of Oz

Scrub, scrub here
Scrub, scrub there
Whether you're white or bronze
A man can wash another man
In the merry old land of Oz

We all smoke the finest cigars out of Cuba
Can you even hit the high note on your tuba? Uh-huh
Jolly old place

Read, read here
Read, read there
We got best-sellers by the pound
You'll never be bored any day
In the merry old land of Oz

La la la
Lo lo lo
Lo lo lo lo lo
That's how we sing the day away
With a la la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
In the merry old land, merry old land, merry old, merry old, merry old, merry old land of Oz
