Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Gettin' tired of this cell timesharing
How I miss my own spaces wide
I could bribe the guard with fifty dollars
If I'm stuck here, I won't survive

Doesn't matter if I've got lotsa money
The war-den's brash, he sees me cry and thinks it's funny
Everybody's walkin' out--they're homebound
Crummy, cause it's still not parole for me

Though I'm well behaved; they're still depriving
'Fraid I'll be here for quite a while
Tried to dig a hole with stolen pliers
One more strike, I'm headed for The Green Mile

Nowadays the kitchen crew's temperamental
But they swear that nose hair was quite accidental
Food's junk, hard bunk, roomin' with a street punk
And still no parole for me

Oh, it doesn't help to memorize the court papers
'Cause a witness placed me at the scene
And the D.A. in town
Says he'll be in the ground 'fore they ever try to release me
I'm never gonna be free

Ooooo

What if I made efforts to be kinder?
Offered to water all the plants?
Someone told me "You'd still be stuck baby
If you offered a free lap dance"

So I'm still in here with the stalkers and streakers
With each day that goes by, my outlook is bleaker
Sun's rays, p.j.s, even miss Fred's praise
And still no parole for me

Seems it's everyone but me they're freein'
And I miss freedom oh so much
Do you think a new appeal'd be prudent...
Use insanity as a crutch?

Wanna go, they treat me just like a junkie
Tired of the looks--"Didn't she kill a monkey?"
Oh and these days, malaise is all I dis-play
'Cause there's no parole for me

Everybody's walkin' out--they're homebound
Crummy, cause it's still not parole for me

Arwen, did you get 46 years 3months in prison for killing that guy who was watching you in that last parody? Not only is that a "speedy trial " but a "miscarriage of justice " as well!! ( hey, atleast you have computers in there! ).

You've got us all locked-up in the prison of your parody perfection, Princess Arwen.

That's fantastic! Sweet storytelling as usual, and done to none other than Billy Joel, my favorite pop dude! VERY nice job rhyming with the OS.

Your Honor, my client is a "Lord of the Rings" fan. Clearly, this indicates less than full mental stability. If obsessed with the Ring, the girl you must spring! (Rest in peace, Johnnie Cochran, 1937-2005.)

Good one, Arwen! Monkey killers are creative people too!

They let 'ol Martha out, but not our Princess??? What's up with that. I guess I'm just gonna have to organize a jailbreak :-). Absolutely LOVE this! 555

Red Ant...actually it was the monkey I killed at the zoo. But yes...I do appreciate the technology in the joint...=)...

Johnny...awww...thanks a ton, Mr. D!

Leo...thank you!! (I love when compliments contain the phrase "as usual")

alvin...thanks. To be honest, it's a title I've had for about a year and a half...but I could never throw the lyrics down...until this week. Talk about getting a weight off of my shoulders...=) Thanks!

Rex...it would be a bonus if I only enjoyed wearing jumpsuits. =( Thanks anyway.

Michael...it's only fair to let you know that I'll be seeking alternative representation. We discussed NOT bringing your person opinions of my state of mind into play...; )

Rick...in my experience...some of the most creative...; ) Thanks!

Dee...glad to know you're on my side. I'll be looking forward to that special cake on our next visiting day...=)
