The Lyrics

The long expensive trial is over. The jury has decided. The long expensive wait begins. (I know California has no electric chair)
There he sits in the pen, caused a lot of sad
What a loathsome cad, Peterson
D-E-A-T-H, now he's been had
Cause he's been real bad, that Peterson
Well he just wanted freedom from his wifey
And he did not want anyone to know
He'll sit there with his ass in that chair
We'll see it on the video
Pay for that crime
Watching Scotty fry

Made him some anchors out of concrete blocks
Headed for the docks, Peterson
Should he take fishing or golfing socks
Thinkin' with his cock, Peterson
In two short years he went from mate to inmate
And what he did before that was a sham
So let him go sit on old death row
He's such a callous man
And we're waiting here someday
Watching Scotty fry

Riding on court appeals, to the Fed
All has been said, Peterson
Gonna have a final supper and the Bible read
All ready to be dead? Peterson?
What's that you say, Warden, come on we'll keep the seat warm
We'll save you a place where the cold-hearted murderers go
I think I'll have a beer
And hold a little vigil for the show
U.S.A. watching Scotty go
U.S.A. watching Scotty fry

A sick song for a sick f*ck. Coulda also been "Watching Scotty Glow."

How about "Watching Scotty Choke", since he'll suffocate after the lethal injection does it's job?

Well put, Rick. Amber Fry will be watching him die ... in 15 years or so.

Charming. I'll look out for you on the tape, the one holding out marshmallows on a stick.

I was expecting this to be a song about a mistake by the Enterprise's chief engineer... ;-)
