Parody Song Title:
"The Way They Took Old Scarface Down"
Al Capone was his name, and he ruled in the age of jazz
'til Treasury Agents arrived, and shipped him to Alcatraz
In the summer of '31, the T-man didn't carry a gun
He checked the books, saw Al was lax
He had neglected to pay his income tax
That's how they took old Scarface down
A ledger revelation
That day, they took old Scarface down
A lengthy incarceration
No gat: no rat tat tat tat, no rat tat tat tat
Like the mobsters around him, Al was a violent man
He was smarter than most of them, he had a better plan
Amendment Eighteen, ratified
A measure certain to be defied
The Volstead Act, a nation went dry
There was a mighty thirst and Big Al could supply
That's how Chicago came to be
Where all the whiskey was flowing
His reputation was growing
They drank: they mocked the law, they mocked the law, scoffed at the law
Al Capone though a huge success, said one day in great distress
"Damn, I must confess, I'm scared of that Elliot Ness
They don't mind you shooting hoods
And they don't care if the liquor's no good
Just blow out their brains and rot their gut
But be certain that you give Uncle Sam his cut".
That's why they took old Scarface down
Not for the blood he spattered
The feds would take old Scarface down
For things that really mattered
They want your dough, they want all your dough, they'll take all your dough
The feds had taken Scarface down
Ness could not be corrupted
A wretched, syphilitic clown
His rackets interrupted
Feds sang: "Tax tax, tax, tax, tax, tax, tax, tax, tax, tax tax, tax, tax tax, tax".
