I Believe He Cannot Fly

I believe he can’t fly

I believe he can no longer lie

I believe he’ll die in jail

I believe he should have known better

I believe he’ll rot in hell

And I am sorry that I am a truth teller.

 

I believe he is a monster

I believe he is a vile sinner

I believe he got a fair trial

He won’t be out on bail

I believe he should have known better

And I believe that he does not matter.

 

I believe he’ll never fly

I believe he can no longer lie

I believe, in jail, he’ll die

I believe, in hell, he’ll cry

For the rest of his sinful life

Though not funny; now, his victims can laugh.
