Music Is The Best
Dec 3, 2020
Please Mr. Custer
When I was a kid, I loved novelty songs, the sillier the better. From “Purple People Eater” to “Ahab The Arab” to endless comedy compilations where dumb stories were told using snippets from popular doo-wop songs, I couldn’t laugh hard or long enough at what I heard on the radio, so I was making up my own versions of popular songs to the horror & disdain of my teachers, counselors, family, & neighbors.
I memorized Jerry Lewis’s “One Hen Two Ducks” routine so well I could recite the entire thing in reverse. We would sing “Big Ass Lil,” our version of “Big John” at Steinway Park.
I routinely tweet mutilated songs on Twitter, like these:
The zomby flu is always a good hum.
Bob Zimmerman Meats the Beatles...
Mmmm, mmmm, good.
I like my religious songs served cold.
I should have died a long long time ago...
