Big Audio Dynamite: 1987 The Medicine Show

Second in a series of amusing songs with spoken word by artists that don't normally do spoken word: Big Audio Dynamite: 1987 The Medicine Show The actual video for the song...and it includes that unique and unmistakable symbol of the 80s...a Delorean. Spoken word lyrics:
Wanted in fourteen counties of this state,
the condemned is found guilty of the crimes of murder,
armed robbery of citizens, state banks, and post offices,
the theft of sacred objects,
arson in a state prison,
deserting his wife and children,
inciting prostitution,
receiving stolen goods,
selling stolen goods,
passing counterfeit money,
and contrary to the laws of this state,
the condemned is guilty of using marked cards and loaded dice.
Therefore, according to the power invested in us, we sentence the accused here before us, Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez...
...known as the Rat...
...and any other aliases he might have,
to hang by the neck until dead. May God have mercy on his soul.
