'You're the cutest Jailbird I ever did see'????


Was the song JAILHOUSE ROCK written by THE SISTERS from SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION??

Well, you know what they say about prison -- if you drop the soap in the shower, don't bend over!

I wonder if Elvis ever realised what he was singing!

Glad to see I was not the only one concerned by this line.

Just a thought: since the party took place in a county jail, not a men's penitentiary, could some prisoners have been female, even though the dance number featured all male performers?

As to whether Elvis knew what he was singing, look up his reaction when told a man was attracted to him. It was just short of homicidal rather than homosexual.
