  • Electric guitar gets run over by a car on the highway
    This is a crime against the state
    This is the meaning of life.

    To tune this electric guitar

    An electric guitar is brought in to a court of law
    The judge and the jury (twelve members of the jury)
    All listening to records
    This is a crime against the state
    This is the verdict they reach:

    Never listen to electric guitar

    Electric guitar is copies, the copy sounds better
    Call this the law of justice, call this freedom and liberty
    I thought I perjure myself, right in front of the jury!
    Is this a crime against the state? No!
    This is the verdict they reach:

    Someone controls electric guitar.
