JAILHOUSE WALK – Parody of Jailhouse Rock | Freedom Toast & Cinebot Video

posted in: Political Parody | 0

We’re seeing indictments and convictions like never before in our country’s history. Along with all tRump’s protestations of innocence come his continuous stream of thinly veiled threats and accusations of a weaponized Justice System. It’s a soap opera. We’ll see where it all leads.
Lyrics by The Freedom Toast. Video Production by Cinebot Video.
Executive Producers Don Caron and Jerry Pender

LYRICS to JAILHOUSE WALK
The Freedom Toast

Defendants came to Fulton County Jail
One came to pay two hundred thousand bail
Everyone was hoping that the rest don’t sing
“Gotta keep our mouths shut to beat this thing”

Let’s walk! Everybody, let’s walk
Just as long as none of us talk
We’ll never do the jailhouse walk

Mark Meadows said, “I think I know too much”
“They won’t put me away, I’m too hot to touch!”
Rudy said, “Me, too, and I got legal skills.
If only there was someone to pay my bills!”

Let’s walk! Everybody, let’s walk
Just as long as none of us talk
We’ll never do the jailhouse walk

Eastman told the Pence-man, “Do as I say,”
“When it’s time to do your duty, look the other way.
“I got some new electors who are not quite legit
“If this goes wrong, I’ll have some years to sit!”

Let’s walk! Everybody, let’s walk
Just as long as none of us talk
We’ll never do the jailhouse walk

David Schafer was the Party Chair
Said, “I didn’t do nothing, there is nothing there!
“So what if I found a fake elector or two?
“You didn’t tell me, and I didn’t tell you!”

Let’s walk! Everybody, let’s walk
Just as long as none of us talk
We’ll never do the jailhouse walk

Sidney Powell was feelin’ her oats
She talked to Coffee County ‘bout switching their votes
Said, “If there ain’t fraud here, then we’ll find it there.
We’re screwed if we can’t find it anywhere!”

Let’s walk! Everybody, let’s walk
Just as long as none of us talk
We’ll never do the jailhouse walk
Please never do the jailhouse walk
Mar-a-Lago, not the Jailhouse walk!

ABOUT THE SOURCE MUSIC
“Jailhouse Rock” is a song recorded by American singer Elvis Presley for the film of the same name. It was written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. RCA Victor released the song on a 45 rpm single on September 24, 1957, as the first single from the film’s soundtrack EP. It reached the top of the charts in the U.S. and the top 10 in several other countries. The song has been recognized by the Grammy Hall of Fame, the American Film Institute, and others.

Some of the characters named in the song are real people. Shifty Henry was a well-known Los Angeles musician, not a criminal. The Purple Gang was a real mob. “Sad Sack” was a U.S. Army nickname in World War II for a loser, which was also the name of a popular comic strip and comic book character.

According to Rolling Stone, Leiber and Stoller’s “theme song for Presley’s third movie was decidedly silly, the kind of tongue-in-cheek goof they had come up with for The Coasters. Presley, however, sang it as straight rock & roll, overlooking the jokes in the lyrics (like the suggestion of gay romance when inmate Number 47 tells Number 3, ‘You’re the cutest jailbird I ever did see’) and then introducing Scotty Moore’s guitar solo with a cry so intense that the take almost collapses.”
Gender studies scholars cite the song for “its famous reference to homoerotics behind bars,” while music critic Garry Mulholland writes, “‘Jailhouse Rock’ was always a queer lyric, in both senses.” Douglas Brode writes of the filmed production number that it’s “amazing that the sequence passed by the censors”.

Rolling Stone magazine included “Jailhouse Rock” at number 67 on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and it was named one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. In 2004, it finished at number 21 on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Songs survey of top tunes in American cinema. On November 27, 2016, the Grammy Hall of Fame announced its induction, along with that of another 24 songs. In 2019, the song ranked number 31 on Spanish radio station Rock FM 500’s list of “Five Hundred Rockers of All Time”, ahead of any other song of the 1950s.
