Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

The Canticle of the Brothers Bulger (aka the Anthem Ballad of Whitey Bulger)

This song was created for Game of Bands round 31 : "Songs Based Off of a Movie"

Lyrics:

Whitey,
why can't you be more like your Brother
Whitey,
look what you're doing to your mother
and Billy,
Can't you see your Brother's going deeper
Billy,
You really should be your Brother's keeper

How can one boy be so impeccable
The other one could be so bad
Both in the service; Whitey's skeptical
Got in fights while Billy became a grad

Whitey's doing burglary
Billy gets his law degree

Whitey's in the penitentiary
Forced to take CIA LSD

Amicus brief to the police blotter
A ruffian thief and a Juris Doctor
Priggish pleader and the Artful Dodger
Bottom feeder and a local leader - The Brothers Bulger

Whitey,
Billy's in the legislature and he's showing such pizzazz
Whitey,
You're moving up from Atlanta to do time in Alcatraz
Billy,
Serving in the Senate while Whitey learns to kill
Billy,
Fighting for the children close by the Gang from Winter Hill

University president; Informant for FBI
Caught on the lam, put on trial,Whitey won't testify

Amicus brief to the police blotter
A ruffian thief and a Juris Doctor
Priggish pleader and the Artful Dodger
Bottom feeder and a local leader - The Brothers Bulger
[Exit]
