DeJoy, boy, is that you? I thought your Post Office days were through

"We Gotta Get You Arrested"

DeJoy, boy, is that you?
I thought your Post Office days were through
Tellin' lies and wrecking lives
Tell no lies
You get wise
I tell you now, we're gonna get you dude
There's only one thing left that we can do

We gotta get you arrested
It's like nothin' else to make sure all the mail gets through
We gotta get you arrested
We better perp-walk him, we're wastin' time talkin' now

DeJoy, boy, you're no friend
We'll say how and we'll say when
Ride this cruiser down the street
Take a seat -
the back seat
We may not ever get this chance again
That angry feeling's just about to end

We gotta get you arrested
It's like nothin' else to make sure all the mail gets through
We gotta get you arrested
We better perp-walk him, we're wastin' time talkin' now

Talkin' 'bout life and how to make you do
decades in prison we will put you through
I got one thing to say, you know it's true
We got to find some time to get this thing together, 'cause

We gotta get you arrested
It's like nothin' else to make sure all the mail gets through
We gotta get you arrested
We better perp-walk him, we're wastin' time talkin' now

Talkin' 'bout things so evil that you've done
You may be stupid, but it sure is fun
to give chase to you while you're on the run
Because we ain't got time to get this thing together, 'cause
We got to get a prosecutor with guts who has been around
One who knows better than to let us down
Let's hope there's still one left in this whole town
And that she'll take some time to get this thing together, 'cause
Get this thing together, 'cause
Get this thing together, 'cause

We gotta get you arrested
We gotta get you arrested
We gotta get you arrested
And when we're through with you
We'll get some Trumps too

-Apologies to Todd Rundgren

5. Now do a Utopia tune!

Going to be going through all the songs in my head for the next few hours, trying to figure out which ones would work.

6. Go for it!



This one spontaneously popped into my head (but took hours to craft).

8. I just have to resist the urge to go for the deep cuts.

Nerd that I am, my first thought was Utopia's "The Up".

9. Yeah, apparently even his hits are obscure around here.

Very little response - but I greatly appreciate those who have responded.

7. I read it

but, since I am focused on Christmas now, I thought of the line, "Santa Claus, is that you?" Good work, though!

12. People often get the rhythm wrong when parodying a song, but your meter is impeccable on this.

Clearly, you're a wizard, a true star.

16. The weird thing is how many of the lyrics needed little or no change!

Like the Dark Side Of The Wizard Of Oz - some things just randomly work!

15. WooHoo! ❤️ Love it!

Only way it would be better is if it works and DeJoy gets his ass arrested.

17. I'd send that to Mr. Rundgren...

And see if he' does something with it.
