Albert Anastasia!byUncle Pervey©
Albert Anastasia was sponsered,
By Charlie "Lucky" Luciano.
That's how "Murder Incorporated,"
Made the "Mob's" death of enemies grow!
Albert's men killed over six hundred,
From the "Contracts" put out by the "Mob."
The efficiency of "Murder Inc,"
Was well handled and a well done job!
Murder Incorporated was doomed,
When Abe "Kid Twist" Rellis did his song!
"MI's" echo just faded away,
Murder Incorporated was gone!
Albert Anastasia was lucky,
He was missed in the government's sweet.
He was never linked up with "MI,"
And Albert never let out a peep!
Murder Incorporated's "Something,"
That will NEVER DIE in men's memories.
It dealt death out like a "War Machine,"
And the deaths it did seemed fantasies!
Albert began gathering power,
And with the help of his friends he ruled.
The lucrative trade of the ship yards,
Were from where Albert's spoils accrued!
Albert's power just kept on growing,
And this made Vito Genavese mad.
He put out a "Contract" on Albert,
Cause Vito wanted what Albert had!
Anastasia heard all about it,
Through the usual Mob grape-vine talk.
So he moved to his strong-hold abode,
Cause he knew on the street he was stalked!
Albert Anastasia got careless,
He got in a habit, a pattern.
He'd always cared for his appearance,
And like all "Wise Guys" he never learned!
It was October the twenty fifth,
The year was nineteen fifty seven.
When Albert came in for his haircut,
He got his ticket punched for Heaven!
The Gallo Brothers had been waiting,
They'd got orders to crack this "Tough Nut."
They shot Anastasia and escaped,
And this act ended poor Albert's strut!
Vito never benefited much,
Cause his greed led him down a false path.
He turned all the "Bosses" against him,
He got set up with dope for their wrath!
Vito's life ran out there in prison,
And he lost all the power he'd had.
He didn't last long after Albert,
He was just too damned greedy, and bad!!
