The Lyrics

Synopsis: Magician makes rabbit disappear. P.E.T.A. convinces the District Attorney to charge him with malicious mischief. Magician's defense lawyer, after meeting the magician's sexy, voluptuous wife, hatches a scheme with the D.A. and a crooked Judge, convincing the magician to forego a jury trial, claiming "We have the Judge in our pocket" He agrees to a trial by judge only, and the judge sentences him to life in prison. He is sent to Alcatraz, where he works in the prison laundry.
I wake up in this prison
When the cons start whizzin'
Walk down cell block C to fill my belly

There's just gristle in the slop
The warden's rakin' off the top 'n
I got scabs from crabs on my 'nellies

But if you snitch on crime
You'll be in the morgue by nine
It's not my favored spot to start the day

And I'm never over-joyed
Watchin' Lee who's humpin' Lloyd
They climbed up Brokeback Mountain to stay

So I start

Makin' up a wish list....warden dies
Makin' up a wish list....fewer guys
In this
Laundry smells are viscious...shorts are slimed
Markin' on my wish list: make jerkin' off a crime


{Long lead guitar break as I break out of prison}

Yeah it was easy as wishin'
Since I'd been a magician
And I could pick locks like Houdini

I just had to get away
Either that or turn gay
But I hate the sight of guys in bikinis

You could say I hold a grudge
'Cause my lawyer and the judge
Got together with the D.A.

Told me jail I could avoid
But wound up state-employed
And dodgin' "Drop the soap" with Big Ray

While they were

Givin' me the business...petty crime
Givin' me the business....prison time
They were
Givin' me the business...with my wife
Screwin' with my missus while I was servin' life

{Spoken during instrumental}

"Screw 'em!"

WOOOO! ....Watch Out!
Took good care...of my missus?
While I's away?....make 'em pay! ...Wooo!

{More lead instrumental as I hitch a ride back home}

I show up with no warning
And find my wife ain't mourning
I catch them all "fla-gran-te delicto" {caught in the sex act}

I hear wheezin' like in "Gump"
The peep-hole show's the creeps are humpin'
On my wife: that "requently dicked ho"

They pull a train so slimed
That I had to drop a dime
And call the T.V. crews to make their day

Now the bastards are annoyed
'Cause 'a me they're state-employed
And playin' 'Drop the soap' with Big Ray

They know that

Payback is my business...sweet revenge
Payback is my business...made 'em cringe
They know payback is my business...don't need knives
Payback is my business: I'm humpin' all their wives

Payback is my business ...wooo!
Payback is my business
Payback is my business...yep
Payback is my business............

Makin' up a dish list...Miss Jolie
Makin' up a wish list...on her knees
Makin' up a wish list....Lotsa laughs
What I want for Christmas: More Kristof, Stu and Spaff ......whooo!
Makin' up a wish list
Makin' up a wish list

I've been makin' up a wish list
I've been makin' up a wish list: Whoo!
Put this on my wish list:
Claude comes back for Christmas

This song should be performed in that show "Prison Break!" Very hummable - but not in an "X" way.

"And dodgin' "Drop the soap" with Big Ray" - LMAO - gee that Ray cops his fair share - sorry to be so late in getting to this Dee, and thanks for the lovely shout-out and for putting me in those 2's company - you are there yourself, esp. with the quality of your latest output - and I didn't realise this OS was so long - must have been a brain drain trying to come up with so many funny lines! - 555
