The Lyrics

Marthas is jail and it just dont feel right....
My name is Martha,
I live beyond the second door
I get weird stares from you
Yes I know you've seen me before

These prison clothes are such a fright
Some kind of khaki that don't fit right
Oh Toto it don't look like Kansas anymore
Oh Toto it don't look like Kansas anymore
Oh Toto it don't look like Kansas anymore
Oh Toto it don't look like Kansas anymore


I think it's cause I'm a celebrity
I'll try not to walk to proud
Maybe its cause I'm ditzy
I'll try not to act to blonde
My only crime was telling lies
And for that I drew this time
Life doesn't seem fair anymore
Life doesn't seem fair anymore
Life doesn't seem fair anymore
Life doesn't seem fair anymore

OJ's out walking free
While this cell at camp cupcake waits for me
Life doesn't seem fair anymore
Life doesn't seem fair anymore
Life doesn't seem fair anymore
Life doesn't seem fair anymore



Yes I wish I could fly away
But they locked that door again
Well if you ask that's what I'll say
They wont let me run my business anyway
And I wish I was back at home
Wish I had never head of ImClone

And you can see how sad I am

DKTOS, Joe....but timely, and a good story.....Camp Cupcake, that cracked me up.... and then..Toto, it don't look like Kansas anymore..clever stuff

Pacing problems here... "Oh Toto it don't look like Kansas anymore" is 12 syllables; the original line, "Just don't ask me what it was," is 7. Inserting five extra syllables throws the whole pacing off, I'm sorry. 2/3/3 from me.
