Subject: RE: SONG CHALLENGE! Part 34
Easy come and easy go,
here in prison life is slow.
Thought for once that I had won -
still when all is said and done,
it's easy come and easy go.


Candy comes in many colours,
mine was mostly blue.
They said I won a million dollars
- things like that ain't true.
Coloured dreams like candy melting,
Dreams of freedom, time worth spending
Dreams of home and happy endings.
Things like that ain't true.
Easy come and easy go,
here in prison life is slow.
Thought for once that I had won -
still when all is said and done,
it's easy come and easy go.


Win a prize, you keep on winning,
that's so straight and clear,
If I'd won, I'd soon be running,
I'd be out of here.
Clever lawyers turn you loose,
Money is the best excuse,
In the end it's "Free the Juice"
- Yes, I'd be out of here.
Easy come and easy go,
here in prison life is slow.
Thought for once that I had won -
still when all is said and done,
it's easy come and easy go.


Just a bag of coloured candy,
guess it makes you fat,
Rots your teeth, so sweet and dandy,
nothing more than that.
Breaks your heart if you just let them,
better still, just go forget them
Guess I wish I'd simply ate them,
nothing more than that.
Easy come and easy go,
here in prison life is slow.
Thought for once that I had won -
still when all is said and done,
it's easy come and easy go.
