The Lyrics

This is long overdue
I'm just mad for his satire
Satire grand as can be
And a tribute it in-spires
And not just cuz he wrote one 'bout me.

The tunes of Tommy Turtle
Delightful
The tunes of Tommy Turtle
Insightful
The tunes of Tommy Turtle
Not spiteful.

A lyrical bonanza
Of daily offerings that amaze
Tight pacing in each stanza
Tommy surely can turn a phrase.

The tunes of Tommy Turtle
Delightful
The tunes of Tommy Turtle
Insightful
The tunes of Tommy Turtle
Not spiteful.

To endeavor does this guy
Seek to wield his verbal skill
And so enamoured am I
I just cannot rest until

I lauded Tommy Turtle
Forthrightly
Applauded Tommy Turtle
Not slightly
In awe of Tommy Turtle
I might be.

(Tommy Turtle, Tommy Turtle...)

Celestial Hosannahs
Are surely not too high of praise.
Satirical Nirvana
Tommy's surely at-tained that phase.

The tunes of Tommy Turtle
Delight us
The tunes of Tommy Turtle
Top flight, yes
The tunes of Tommy Turtle
AmIRighteous!

(Tommy Turtle, Tommy Turtle...)

An excellent tribute using a song that's paced appropriately for a turtle.

Almost missed this -- don't always see the weekend stuff. Great choice, using such a pea-brained OS for a pea-brained subject...("Electrical banana", my arse!)... 555, and a T.D. degree (Doctor of Tributology).

Thanks Michael and Tommy. TT it was my pleasure to write a tribute to you. I started it months ago, but when you dropped out of sight, I was unsure whether to post it. I am so glad to see you back on the site again.
