The Lyrics

My buddy Robert Bentley ain't too self-aware. Recently did a photo op in a prison, where he belongs not as a visitor. Foreshadowing?
You oughta be in prison
for squalid felony.
You oughta be in prison
for all your mendacity.

Your voice showed titillation,
and then graft you explored.
So now incarceration
should be your final reward.

Voice sex gave you bliss, your ways amiss
when on the phone.
Aside from those lurid plans,
you took many an unpaid “loan.”

You’re errant more than slightly—
in fact, crook’s what you are.
You ought be in prison,
behind gray bars.

"Robert Bentley" is Secret Service's code name for Hillary - right?
