The Lyrics

Money ain't easy to get and it's harder to hold
But lawyers are greedy and dishonest lot, I've been told
Black leather cases and pinstriped posh suits
And ice cold eyes - so to say
If you don't understand that, you'll lose all your money,
And the lawyers get richer each day.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be lawyers
Don't let 'em read chapters and squeeze the big bucks
Let 'em be cowboys and doctors and such.
Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be lawyers
Cause they'll lie and defraud both home and abroad
And everyone hates 'em so much.

Lawyers like cheating and treating you just as a milk cow
Squeezing all your money and suing you and throwing you away
Them that don't know them don't like them and them that do
Hate them deep down all the way
They are hard, they are ruthless and they have no conscience
Or any heart - so to say

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be lawyers
Don't let 'em read chapters and squeeze the big bucks
Let 'em be cowboys and doctors and such.
Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be lawyers
Cause they'll lie and defraud both home and abroad
And everyone hates 'em so much!

Great parody. First reform I would make to the US Constitution: no lawyers allowed to sit in Congress. Only people with real occupations who have to take time off to serve for a brief term.

Good work, and well-timed for the Supreme Court hearings on ObamaCare. We can't live with 'em and can't live without 'em, thanks to verbose lawmakers.

Sorry about typos- Susanna and OS! It's very hard for me to write most days with the meds and O2, pain and blurred vision. Proofing is hard :(

DAs that put innocent people behind bars and prosecute idiotic crimes to the full extent of the law??? DAs that are racist and biased??? 3 strikes and DA puts a person behind bars for life for stealing a pair of jeans??? Yeah, that's justice...
