The tale of recently-ousted/just convicted Maricopa Co. (AZ) Sheriff Joe Arpaio, he of "Tent City" infamy, now facing sentencing and hoping for a Pardon from the boy from New York City, Donald Trump. A great primer on "Sheriff Joke".

Story behind the song
The Ad-Libs (and later Manhattan Transfer) had a '60s hit with the doo-woppy "Boy From New York City", and it seemed a perfect vehicle to chronicle the sins of Arpaio, our cross to bear for too, too long in and around Phoenix, AZ. Song coda, "Tent City Getaway" is original music.
Lyrics
Oh man he’s one twisted kitty Talkin’ about the guy who runs Tent City No, no, there ain’t nothin’ pretty When it comes to the guy who runs the tent city He’s crude and mean and sometimes sounds insane (oh yeah) Like when he says he’ll guard the border - from sixty miles away (he’s mad) He brags about green meat (oooh) and his death-chair seat (it’s hot) He’s gets his kicks making folks live out in the heat (real sad) Screw their dignity (screwy), it gets him on the tee-vee They’re just props (backdrop)…photo ops (toy cop) Oh man he’s one twisted kitty Talkin’ about the guy who runs Tent City He struts around like he wears a crown (big man) He’s got the largest ego that the Guinness people ever found (big ham) The man gets sued (sued...) every day or two (free shot…) And his female prisoners were degraded by his pervy view (web cam) He’ll invent the scene (scene…) - you just put in on the screen Spider bombs (Ha-Ha!), chain gang moms (Mama!) Once he sent the Sheriff’s Posse off to fight sex crime No one got arrested, but they had a real good time - oh yeah (good time!) Those pink underpants – part of his tough-guy stance (hard-line) But he’s got this special jail for wayward stars who dance (real fine!) It’s VIP nice – the champagne’s on ice (oooh….yee-haw) He kept the Rhinestone Cowboy safe there, for a price (show time!) Sooie y’all saw Glen on the tee-vee (Sooie!) With his host (you know...) aired coast-to-coast (…it’s Joe) Oh man he’s one twisted kitty Talkin’ about the guy who runs Tent City No, no, there ain’t nothin’ pretty When it comes to the guy who runs the tent city Oh man he’s one effed-up kitty Talkin’ about the guy who runs Tent City No no there ain’t nothin’ pretty When it comes to the guy who runs the tent ci-tay Nothin’ pretty (in Tent City) There’s nothin’ pretty In Tent City (nothin’ pretty)
