The Lyrics

This parody is about pleading the 5th Amendment of the United States Constitution in a court of law for the purpose of not incriminating oneself. Note "dint" is a corruption of "didn't", seen occasionally in Stephen King books, and "mis" is an abbreviation of "misdemeanor". As for the lack of rhymes, as mentioned in a comment on my first parody of this OS, the OS lacked rhymes, too.
I'm a-pleadin' the 5th, I am
Pleadin' the 5th, I am, I am
I was convicted of some heinous crimes
But I didn't do it, no I dint
And every one was a felony (Felony!)
Didn't even have a mis (No mis!)
I've got aggravated felonies
And I'm a-pleadin' the 5th, I am

Second verse, just like the first!

I'm a-pleadin' the 5th, I am
Pleadin' the 5th, I am, I am
I was convicted of some heinous crimes
But I didn't do it, no I dint
And every one was a felony (Felony!)
Didn't even have a mis (No mis!)
I've got aggravated felonies
And I'm a-pleadin' the 5th, I am

F-I-F-T-H
Plead the 5th, plead the 5th, plead the 5th, I will, I'm pleading the 5th, I am, I am, I'm pleading the 5th, I am!


And no, I've never committed a felony nor have been convicted of one.

Really liked this one - I'm sure if we ever bring any of the financial guys to face a court, they'll be singing your song.

Thanks, Timmy1000. I'm sure that Madoff and his buddies will be pleading the 5th as well as "not guilty".

Very funny and very catchy. Imagine a convict singing that one in court. e.g How do you plea sir "I'm pleading the fifth i am"

Thanks, Gari, lol. I'm sure that anyone who sings ANY song in court, especially "I'm Henry VIII, I Am" or any parody of it, would royally piss off the judge and would be charged with contempt of court.
