Free Patrixia Hopper! She's a political prisoner! (Since when is "possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute" a crime?)

lyrics

Momma I’m just calling to say I’m well.
How’s business? How’s the government?
How’s the weather? How’s your health?

How’s prison?
I hope its swell.
Say hello to your bunkmates
When you return to your cell

Don’t ya know
That things are gonna be alright.
Don’t ya know
We’re breaking you out tonight.
Don’t ya know
Things are gonna be just fine.
Don’t ya know
They might let you off with a fine.

Momma I’m just calling to say a lot.
The screws tossed the cells,
And they didn’t find meth in your cot.
Are you clean, or are you not?
Thank God you’re off of the hard stuff.
At least you can still smoke pot.

Don’t ya know
That things are gonna be alright.
Don’t ya know
We’re breaking you out tonight.
Don’t ya know
Things are gonna be just fine.
Don’t ya know
They might let you off with a fine.

(Momma’s in the jail house
Momma’s in the big house
Momma’s in the the pokey
Momma’s up the river

Momma’s in the prison
In the penitentiary
Momma’s in the cooler
In the penal colony

Momma’s in the lockup
Momma’s in confinement
Momma’s in the dungeon
Momma’s in the clink now

Momma’s in detention
Cooped up in Shawshank
Maximum security
correctional facility)

Momma I’m just calling to say we’re screwed.
Someone told the warden that you put paint in his food.
Who be snitchin’? That’s downright rude.
We brought you a sharpened toothbrush, so you can go shank that dude.

Don’t ya know
That things are gonna be alright.
Don’t ya know
We’re breaking you out tonight.
Don’t ya know
We’re gonna find that dirty snitch.
Don’t ya know
We’re gonna make that bitch wish she didn’t exist.

(Momma’s in the jail house
Momma’s in the big house
Momma’s in the the pokey
Momma’s up the river

Momma’s in the prison
In the penitentiary
Momma’s in the cooler
In the penal colony

Momma’s in the lockup
Momma’s in confinement
Momma’s in the dungeon
Momma’s in the clink now

Momma’s in detention
Cooped up in Shawshank
Maximum security
correctional facility)

Don’t ya know
Things are gonna be just fine.
Don’t ya know
You’re the queen of toilet wine.
Don’t ya know
We found a lawyer on T.V.
Don’t ya know
His first consultation is free.
