"Houston Means We're One Day Closer To Jail"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Houston, Houston means that we're one day closer to jail.
Houston, Houston means that our business is gonna fail.
Wall Street barons love how we do business, ah they do,
Ah, but Houston, Houston means that our careers will soon be through.

Building the world's best portfolio was a great time for me and the crooks
When the market is soaring, you know the investors always get hooked
Gettin' caught by the Federal government sure can make a CEO blue
But here I am in prison, payin' for all the workers I screwed.

Houston, Houston means that we're one day closer to jail.
Houston, Houston means that our business is gonna fail.
Wall Street barons love how we do business, ah they do,
Ah, but Houston, Houston means that our careers will soon be through.
Ah, but Houston, Houston means that our careers will soon be through.

I thought Houston meant that Justin was a bad boy.

Yes, and it also meant the Enron execs were bad boys (lol) -- MM

Michael-this original song is one I know, but I'm sure not many do; I miss Larry Gatlin's voice, and I liked his songs.

Hey, I know this song too and I have looked at it to parody but never came up with anything. I think you nailed this one MM. Well done.
