The Lyrics

Outside the Van Nuys, CA, courthouse, somebody handed Robert Blake a guitar, and he launched into "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." I'm not kidding. What you didn't hear on the news were his lyrics:
Someone shot Bonny Bakley
No, not I
Why's this heat on me lately?
I got an alibi

Someone bumped off the bimbo
My life's bleak
Stuck in - Court TV limbo
Me and that Jackson freak

Someday I'll be an A-list star
And crowds who hear me play guitar
Will thank me
"Baretta" will return again
And other convicts in the pen
Won't call - me - Span - ky

Someone shot Bonny Bakley
Not me, kid
I ain't shot no one lately
Maybe Phil Spector did

If OJ Simpson whacks his wife
And goes scot-free then
Why - oh - why - can't - I?

What luck! Rick Duncan happened to be at the courthouse and was able to record the performance. Hear it here:

Yeah, and I was able to filter out all the wind noise and reporter clamor and get down to what Blake actually sounded like.
Mari D - February 05, 2004 - Report this comment
But he didn't shoot the deputy. As to what he really sounded like, he sounded like a weirdo! And he said, very softly so that hardly anyone could hear, "Vitello's has awesome cannoli." And they do.

Thanx, Johnny Deet. I still haven't given up hope on a video for this, featuring the vocal stylings of our own Rick Duncan.

Deep inside my gut I felt that Blake was not guilty. Becuase of all the crap he marched through to regain his freedom, I guess he is entitled to some sweet revenge, but he sure did ruin a good song, but I am sure glad your free Mr. Blake.

Danny: I *totally* agree with you. Well, on the "ruin a good song" part, anyway.
