The Lyrics

Alerting cops with a... FLAIR GUN
I brought the law with a... PUNK STUNT!
They cought 'the mob' in a... MOB FRONT!
I wanted action and I... SAW SOME!
I Thought the shot would be... GREAT FUN!
It got me cought in a... MAN HUNT!

They whacked my fingers with a butcher's knife
I felt my hands go numb
I screamed like a girl... beggin' for LIFE!
I fought the law now I'm... ALL THUMBS!
I fought the law now I'm... ALL THUMBS!

Task force agents say I'm... TOO DUMB!
I'd fight 'the mob' but I'm... ALL THUMBS!
I'd fight 'the mob' but I'm... ALL THUMBS!

Can't put a finger on the... PROBLEM!
I'd fight 'the mob' but I'm... ALL THUMBS!
I'd fight 'the mob' but I'm... ALL THUMBS!

It seems so pointless for me to stay mad
I tried my hand at fun
But where's my fingers... they severed AT!
I fought 'the mob' now I'm... ALL THUMBS!
I fought 'the mob' now I'm... ALL THUMBS!

Hey there, all in all, great parody with a few rhyming hitches and a few spelling mistakes but no worries. However, the verse I" fought the law now I'm... ALL THUMBS!", you had the word law. Did you forget to change that? Anyway, you get my 4/5/5

Ditto Norman's sentiments here... your Mob song deserves a, er 'Tony'!

Reminds me of the Joe Pesci scene in Casino where he demonstrates the creative use of a vise.
