Stranger in Blue Suede Shoes

The Santa Cruz Sentinel - of course! - reports on how a lawyer turned up in court in Bucharest wearing blue suede shoes (trainers, or "sneakers" in American English) and was fined for contempt. He looks old enough to know better - but it's an excellent excuse to embed a link to this great piece of music.


I walked into this court
And the judge refused;
He said, "I don't hear lawyers
In blue suede shoes;
We don't give credit, and
We don't give way--
We have to think about what the people might say..
Uh, you know what I mean..."
I said, "sure, man"

...

That's the end of the message
Thank you very much.
Bye bye...
