The Lyrics

Marcus Vick, younger brother of the Atlanta Falcons QB, already in trouble for sharing alcohol with minors, was arrested for reckless driving and marijuana possession on I-64 near New Kent, Va.
What's up with Marcus driving recklessly?
What's up with Marcus with two bags of weed?
What's up with Marcus thinking fecklessly?
Why drive through New Kent at excessive speed?

It's not your first mistake
You took some women home and served them some booze
Turned out they were underaged
You gave us bad news

Why was he giving Mary Jane a ride?
What's up with Marcus staying out so late?
What's up with Marcus paying traffic fines?
Where was he going that he couldn't wait?

That was your first mistake
Your football scholarship is broken in two
Now what can be done for you?
You broke it in two

He got suspended from his practices
He poured the wine, he drinks his bitter cup
All of us Hokies he let down, he is
Crazy and surely needs to grow up

Hope it's your last mistake
I hope for heaven's sake you'll get yourself straight
If you want to play again
You'll just have to wait

I don't know anything about this case, but you picked a great song that many don't know about or make fun of. The lyrics were a shot at Lennon.
