"Cash and Cary" is a song sung by Krusty for his prison special.


Live from Springfield Penitentiary's fabulous big open area in cell block D, it's the Krusty the Clown Prison Special!
(inmates cheer)
I slugged some jerk in Tahoe,
They gave me one two three.
My high-priced lawyer sprung me
On a technicality.
I'm just visitin' Springfield Prison,
I get to sleep at home tonight.
(inmates groan)
Hey, hey, I kid! I kid 'cause I love! I tell ya, the best folk in the world are prison folk!
(inmates cheer)
Man, those cons love Krusty. Inside every hardened criminal beats the heart of a ten-year-old boy.
And vice versa.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

The song is a parody of "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash. It is the tenth track on the album Go Simpsonic with The Simpsons.
