The Lyrics

Adapt to Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Parody on a story on Fox news featuring the pardon of singer James Brown. Link to article:,2933,87406,00.html
I could have got life
The sentence; catastrophy
Please save my hindside
Need escape from this jail-city
Open the cell, just throw up some bail and gee,
I'd be a free bird, no need for anxiety
Because I'm easy come, easy go, Little high, little low,
Any way I can go, doesn't really matter to me, you see.

Mama just chilled the fans
Broke into a seminar, struck with terror, nerves ajar
Mama, I's just havin' fun
But they chased me state to state and made me pay
Mama, ohh, Didn't make nobody die
I just can't hack this time in jail, it's sorrow
Rally on, rally on my whole life has gone to tatters

Get straight, these drugs are bum
My liver's not so fine, PCP does it every time
Come on parole board buddy, I've got to know,
Is there a chance to get out early for my goof?
Mama, ohh, I just want to fly
Is there someone to get me out to call?

I've got a little desperado of a plan
Kennedy, kennedy will you do some finango?
Smoke and mirrors and hyping, very very righting me

(Galileo) Galileo (Galileo) Galileo, Galileo figaro
Magnifico It's just a lame ploy will somebody free me?
He's just a song boy from the song industry
Don't jail him for life for his stupidity

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
Just-chill-ah Politician let you go
(Let him go!) Just-chill-ah Politician let you go
(Let him go!) Just-chill-ah Politician let you go
(Let me go) Politician just say so
(Let me go) Politician he say go (Let me go) Ah

Go, go, go, go, go, go, go
(Oh mama mia, mama mia) Mama mia, let me go
The old boy's club has a free pass set aside for me for me, for me
So you think you can jail me and make me serve my full time?
Even though the full sentence was short of the crime.
Or maybe, you won't see through me maybe
Just gonna get out, just gonna get right outta here
Laws don't really matter, anyone can see
Laws don't really matter, Laws don't apply the same way to me.
Anyway, I just go.

Thanks JD. This was one of my earliest parodies on this site. I look at it now and see some things I could have done better. Like I could have made this line:

Need escape from this jail-city


Need escape from captivity.

and other parts where I used original verse but could have easily rewritten them. But still I don't think it was half bad for a newbie.
