The Lyrics

It's been a while since I submitted a BJ parody. In fact, it's been a while since I submitted much of anything.
We walked through the halls there in the old courthouse.
They're tearing it down now, kill each rat and mouse.
I haven't shown you everything lawyers can do.
So please remain silent, or I can't free you.

I am the public defender.
A good verdict I can render.
I'm all that you can hire
pull your ass out of the fire.
I know the law, I even know the judge.
And I can work the evidence
once the trial will commence.

Did you know that before your file came to light
it was some kind of miracle they thought me bright.
Someday we will both look back and have to laugh.
I could make some money, instead I take a bath.

I am the public defender.
A good verdict I can render.
I'm all that you can hire
pull your ass out of the fire.
I know the law, I even know the judge.
I'm doing this work pro bono.
Why I do it, I don't know.

Sometimes it's so easy to let a crook slip on by
without even seeing he's guilty at all.
But you on the stand sat and told a lie.
And these are the cases they never recall.

(instrumental break)

And so I exonerate your past misdeeds.
You are responsible for why he bleeds.
Ah, but holding me in contempt, the judge has done.
I'm spending more time in jail than you, you bum!

I am the public defender.
A good verdict I can render.
I'm all that you can hire
pull your ass out of the fire.
I know the law, I even know the judge.
I'll give you all the best of me
but you won't like the rest of me.
