The Lyrics

Dedicated to Dan "Boo-Boo Bear" Marion, Al "mocked-by-small-birds" Finch, Ronny Guilbeau and the dear late Rick Perrine. Long live the memory of Zinc Lincoln - I think they would have enjoyed this version... :-)
In the supermarket
Had a big display of it
Medium and hot and mild
There was all those jars so shiny
They was stacked up all in liney
The reds and greens they looked so fine

Some men in masks came runnin'
They're wavin' round a gun an'
They was loadin' up them carts so high
Then they headed for the checkit
Run right over ol' Miz Beckett
They wasn't gonna wait in line

Solving that salsa crime
Solving that salsa crime
Gonna put our minds right to it
Gonna get the cops onto it
Solving that salsa crime

Well then they fled that neighborhood
Recklessly as gangsters would
Laughin' at their crime so sublime
Speedin' like Bandit in the movies
Singin' songs by Jerry Reed
A crossin' over that State line

Soon their stockpile was shrinkin'
And they started thinkin'
Time for another 'Great Salsa Crime'
Then from their hideout leavin'
And all on the way agreein'
They should try a diff'rent Salsa line....

Solving that salsa crime
Solving that salsa crime
Gonna get the cops onto it
Gonna start a hot pursu-it
Solving that salsa crime

Solving that salsa crime
Solving that salsa crime
Gonna get the cops onto it
Gonna make those bandits rue it
Solving that salsa crime

Thank you Royce! We are so happy with how well-received our stuff has been! :-D And I've wanted to parody this song for so long, and I knew that you for certain would appreciate a country one.

Meriadoc made me do it. Country music twang almost broke my PC.... That little hobbit has some sort of control over me!
