The Lyrics

snuff the tragic patsy...kill poor ol' lee
while walking in a lawman's grip, he was shot dead as can be
vicious dallas caper...left that rascal snuffed
no chance to sing and tell the facts...that mother fell while cuffed

oh...snuff the tragic patsy...kill poor ol' lee
while walking in a lawman's grip, he was shot dead as can be
snuff the tragic patsy...kill poor ol' lee
while walking in a lawman's grip, he was shot dead as can be

they told him he would travel...from that joint to bigger jail
ruby, with his pistol, lurched...so close, he couldn't fail
oswald was defenseless...as down the hall, he came
seems the cops had lowered their guards...as ruby stalked his game

oh...snuff the tragic patsy...kill poor ol' lee
while walking in a lawman's grip, he was shot dead as can be
snuff the tragic patsy...kill poor ol' lee
while walking in a lawman's grip, he was shot dead as can be

a trial would last forever...a jury, long employed
secret things, to light, would bring...to calm the paranoid
but it never happened...ruby knotted up the score
this trial would never drag on...deceased men talk no more

the nation, rent with sorrow...tall tales still remain
and from the truth, we all got gypped...cause things were not explained
the rumors just won't end...its facts, the people crave
this story keeps on naggin'...cause ol' lee could not be saved

oh...snuff the tragic patsy...kill poor ol' lee
while walking in a lawman's grip, he was shot dead as can be
snuff the tragic patsy...kill poor ol' lee
while walking in a lawman's grip, he was shot dead as can be

I gave you straight fives not because I thought this parody was funny but because it was intriguing how well you crafted the lyrics to fit the OS.
