  • Ella Fitzgerald - Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead - with the lyrics
    "Once there was a wicked witch
    In the lovely land of Oz
    And a wickeder, wickeder
    Wickeder witch that never,never was
    She filled the folks in munchkin land
    With terror and with dread
    Till one fine day from kansas way...
    And the coroner pronounced her: dead"

    On a Tuesday they locked me in the jail (po' boy)
    On a Wednesday my trial was attested
    On a Thursday they said guilty and the judge's gavel fell"

  • A criminal mind by Styx :
    "I've spent my life behind these steel bars
    I've paid my debt in time
    But being brought to justice
    That was my only crime
    I don't regret action
    I'd do the same again"
