The Lyrics

Place known as Alcatraz
Sternish place of stone walls
Time to mull - the de-cor's dull
Stealin', Bubbas, brawls

'Lectric chair's waiting there
Sizzles every day
They will be soon frying me
Then I'll be souffled

Hey I've got to try to swim the Bay
Hey I've got to try to swim the Bay

Hole did I delve on sly
Drill-fan tunnelin'
Straw filled head, in my bed
Hope me re-semblin'

‘Scape drear-y island-y
It is child's play
Won't be found - rather drown
Fed the shark array

Hey I've got to try to swim the Bay
Hey I've got to try to swim the Bay

Why didn't The Birdman of Alcatraz pull a Daedalus? I guess he preferred to wax philosophical.

loved the second verse, Merry and Pippin - and "Hole did I delve on sly" was adagioesque - 555

Anybody who doesn't give this parody a five spends a night in the box! Johnny: There oughta be a law against plays on words like that. No wonder they call it "crime and pun-ishment."
