What? I love this song. I couldn't help singing it anyway.
So what did I learn.
You can't sing pretty much any song in prison except Happy Birthday.
Wait a minute, Happy Birthday to Me, that could be suggestive.
Don't forget though.........
Dude Looks Like A Lady - Aerosmith
Oh, and you're welcome for all the songs now stuck in your mind here's one you can safely sing in prison, one I've been singing all day long:
"I've got a brand new pair of roller skates, you got a brand new key."
Don't drop the soap.
