I Wish There Were No Prisons
Last updated: 11.10.23
I first heard "I wish there were no prisons" on Wally Whyton's Folk Music Broadcast in September 1984 along with Brian O'Lynn as described above. It's a delightful cheery ditty about a kleptomaniac who is quite happily capable of stealing potatoes from twin babies whilst lying within the safety of their pram.
