Paul Newman canta Plastic Jesus

Luke Jackson (o sea, Paul), purgando pena en una prisión, se entera de que ha muerto su viejita.

I don’t care if it rains or freezes,
long as I got my Plastic Jesus,
sittin’ on the dashboard of my car.
Comes in colors, pink and pleasant,
glows in the dark cause it’s irridescent
Take it with you when you travel far.

Get yourself a sweet Madonna,
dressed in rhinestones sittin’ on a
pedestal of abalone shell
Goin’ ninety, I ain’t scary,
‘cause I’ve got the Virgin Mary,
assurin’ me that I won’t go to Hell.

(de Cool Hand Luke -no todo es el Color del Dinero, muchachos-, 1967)
