The Councilman's Lament
I'm sorry, so sorry for taking those bribes.
It was wrong of me. It's all bad vibes.
But, here's good advice before I go to jail:
In taking bribes, don't leave a paper trail.
Take cash! No checks. And no receipts!
If you do, the feds will don their cleats
And chase you until you are caught.
Your whole career will go for naught.
No salary, no benefits, no city car
No pension, no brandy, no Cuban cigars.
I'm gettin' 6 to 10. Geez, what a drag!
And it's all because I didn’t use...
A brown paper bag.
