Songs for the Scrooge Inclined


At Writers Who Kill blog spot we hope you have a joyous holiday season. We will

put up new blogs starting on January 3, 2011. Until then we offer the songs below

for people who have had more than enough of the festivities:




IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE PRISON

(To the tune of it’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas)

It’s beginning to look a lot like prison

Everywhere I see

The jurors’ unfriendly eyes

Prosecution cracking wise

My attorney will not look at me.

It’s beginning to look a lot like hard time

Shouldn’t have testified

But how did I know she’d rat

Because of our little spat

Now everybody knows how much I lied.

The Bailiff’s fitting me with handcuffs

He’s taking me away

More chances to make new friends

Opportunities never end

And I’ll be home in ten years and a day.


HOMICIDE

(To the tune of Walking in a Winter Wonderland)

Homicide. Were you listenin’?

Did you see the blood glistenin’?

Friends forever. Narcing never.

Sneaking ‘cross a winter wonderland

In the hood there used to be a stoolie

We’ll pretend that we were never there

When they ask, “Where were you? Tell me truly.”

Shopping for my brother’s underwear.

Later on we conspire.

Smoke some weed

And get higher.

The cops come around

To tell us they found

Our tracks across the winter wonderland.

Very entertaining! Warren, you're sick. I mean that in the best way, of course.

Pauline Alldred said...

The songs definitely hit the spot. It's somewhat undemocratic of you the way you have the bad guys suffer.

E. B. Davis said...

LOL-What would we do without Warren! Sick and great-an antidote for the season. Thanks, Warren.

Humph, police procedural versions.
Okay, next year the cozy versions.
In the mean time, oh my poor fave Christmas songs.
