"The Ballad of the SHAWSHANK CONNECTION" or... Prisoner of Luv

In light of the Prison Escape in upper New York & the sordid, yet hilarious affair with one of the Perps while sewing him a Power Drill - this will definitely be a movie I wanna see!  But for now - I give you a Sing-a-long:

To the Tune of "How Are Things in Glocca Morra" from the Musical "Finian's Rainbow"

How are things in Danne-mora?

Is that Manhole Cover still open there?

Does it still run down to Cell 14...

thru muck & mire,

to Can-ada, Can-arsie or...

hell, I don't care!

How are things in Danne-mora?

Is Miss Joyce-ie still weeping there?

Did'she cough-up the big, big lie...

t'save her-guy,

from the big goodbye...

...which was it, dear - lust-or-luv,

or do'ya really care?

So I ask each Prison Pillow

& each Inmate along the way...

did'ya know of the shrill drillin',

so ther'd ...be no more frig-in killin?

How are things in Dannemora, this fine day?

R&L ;-D  You gotta come up with a major show stopping song and dance number about the Smiley Face on the manhole cover:

That's right jmac.  Gotch'a!  Those 2 scalawags are sippin' drinks on a hammock in Bora Bora as we speak!

You will be the toast of Broadway!  Irony: I played Finian in a summer stock of "Finian's Rainbow" many and many years ago.  I had the damnest time with the Irish accent!

Definitely movie material. We heard it here first.

Thanks Jerry!  I believe you when you said you played Finian - that's hard to forget when you've done something like that!  I love all the songs from that Show - so dreamy.  Sorry, I messed up the lyrics for you - but I couldn't resist!

Thanks Jeanne!  I think that married-woman-accomplice is a precious character; who will undoubtedly be featured in next week's "Saturday Night Live"!
