I was recently reminded of a fun episode on LiveJournal from five and a half years ago: Song lyrics in outline form. I got it from vvvexation post who got it from a post by Dinosaur Comics creator qwantz. At the time, I wrote my version of Personal Jesus.

Anyway, I've been listening to a lot of Grateful Dead lately and realized that Jack Straw is well-suited to this format. Here's a good performance if you're unfamiliar with the song.
