BALLAD OF DAN RATHER
(Sung to the tune from the Beverly Hillbillies)
Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Dan,
The documents were fake and he didn't give a damn;
He put 'em on the air, an' he thought he'd done the job,
But up from the web come a howlin' mob.
Blogs, that is.
Well, the first thing you know ol' Dan's a-runnin' fast;
Made a false report an' it bit him in the ass;
He said 'dog-gonnit, I done thought I'd get away!'
But it turned out to be his a-reckonin' day.
Busted, that is.
Mud in the eye.
Well, now it's time to say goodbye to Dan and all his men;
And they would like to shoot you folks for turnin' them in;
You're all invited back next week to watch the Evening News,
And see which correspondent's picked to fill Dan's empty shoes.
Y'all come back, now, hear?
Here is a link to the music:
Ya'll come back now ya hear!
That reminds me of the Lorena Bobbitt song
"Next thing you know there's a Ginsu by his side
And Lorena's in the car taking Willie for a ride"
A Classic !
Oh, but darlin', "Y'all come back now, heah?!?" is THE single most spoken phrase south of the Mason/Dixon.
What's so nice about it is that, MOST of the time, we actually mean it.
Bless your little heart, baby!
So true...sure wish I had written it.
