Barbed Wire

In caged fury
Many belong in a padded cell
Now I have a great story to tell
There once was a mission from a prison
For two guys named Amos & Andy
In carpenter class they stole a file
At night they worked on the tile
Although many days have passed
They still had every reason to grasp
A reason to escape call it fate
Then one day Andy broke the tile block free
Off went Amos and Andy
Crawling through the corridor
The pair managed to find a door
It was then they saw the lights of freedom
Slipping over the barbed wire
Amos cut his foot
Dripping blood he managed to make it to a nearby stream
There he washed his wound clean
So they went on there journey free
Later Andy got busted for selling whiskey
As for Amos he lived a life of a king down in Mexico
Andy never told the authorites where his friend would be
Another fast break from the penitentiary
