“A Musical Interlude”

Music is just as important to our overall well-being as laughter, wouldn’t you agree?

Good because I have written a couple of tunes using the melodies from two recognizable songs, enabling each of you to sing along.

The first one is sung to the melody, “Home, Home on the Range”

“Home, Home, Behind Bars”

Ready? Ana one, ana two . . . . .

Home, Home Behind Bars,

Where the dealers and the bank robbers stay

Where criminals dwell

In their own private hell

Wasting time as the taxpayers pay

Home, Home Behind Bars,

Where the white color bad boys are sent

Where fortunes are lost

At great taxpayer lost

And the families’ last pennies are spent.

Home, Home Behind Bars,

Where a new class of criminal grows

Poor judgment was used

Now they pay their own dues

There’s a better solution you know.

In Prison they’ll stayyyyy

Until their release dayyyyyy

And then  ho-omeland bound they will gooooooo!

Very Good!  That was excellent singing everyone.  Are you ready for another?  Good.

(ed note: I challenge to you try and forget this tune over the next 6 hours. . . .)

Now, this one will be sung to the tune of – er – Nancy Sinatra’s one hit “These Boots Were Made For Walking”.  Ready, Boots?

“These Rules Were Made for Breakin’ ”

We’re in prison

We’re all locked behind bars, now we all serve time

And some have to pay their fines.

Well they give us lots of rules and regulations

They say follow them, but we break them all the time.

Well these rules were made for breakin’

and that’s just what you’ll do,

But if you’re caught you just might get another year or two!

(Guitar. . . .)

Well they tell us

Not to bring food back from chow hall,

Leave that onion there

And don’t touch that dinner roll

“If I see you put a thing inside your pockets

Well I’ll take your sorry butt right to the Hole!”

Well these rules were made for breakin’

and that’s just what you’ll do,

But, if your caught you just

Might get another year or two!

Well they say no smokin’

And there is not drinkin’

And they certainly don’t want to see no cell phones

Some of the guys, I don’t know what they’re thinkin’

Well it seems like some don’t ever want to go home.

Well these rules were made for breakin’

and that’s just what you’ll do,

But if your caught, you just might get another year or two.

Ready Rules, Start Breakin’ !

There!  Now wasn’t that fun?

That ends our musical interlude, and that’s all I’ve got for right now.
