I’ve Never Been in Jail Before

By Robert S. Steinberg, Law Offices of Robert S. Steinberg, Palmetto Bay, FL

(To the tune of “I’ve Never Been in Love Before” by Frank Loesser, from the 1950 Broadway musical and the 1955 film Guys and Dolls, as sung by Frank Sinatra (1965); Ethan Hawke (2016); Moon & Sand (2017).)

I’ve never been in jail before.
I thought that I was quite
Invisible offshore.

I’ve never been in jail before.
The path my life was on
Has taken a detour.

And it’s no fun
When they incarcerate
You, when the hands of fate
Slam shut that prison door.

Believe me fraud’s
A tax-game you don’t win.
I know, I’ve never been
In jail before.
