"Washington Lineman"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Written by Jimmy Webb, as were several other Campbell songs. If there's ever a football game between the FBI and the Mounties, this guy should give the Calgary Spineman some work.
I was a lineman for the Cowboys
but I must hit the road.
I've been traded to our rivals
and my brain's on overload.

'Cause Steve Spurrier was fired
and Joe Gibbs is feeling fine
and the Washington Lineman
is ready to dine!

You've got a shoulder separation
and I gave you that pain
and that's how it goes
when up against Redskin Hogs you strain.

And I hate you and I beat you.
And I beat you all the time.
And the Washington Lineman
is ready to dine!

(Instrumental break)

And I hate you and I beat you.
And I beat you all the time.
And the Washington Lineman
is ready to dine!

(Instrumental fadeout)

Michael, Nice job. 5's - I did one with this song when I was working at CCH doing phone support called "Tax Support Phone Rep" (clever title, eh?), but it was too 'inside' the work to post here.

All 5's, simply because I love the 'Skins and hate the 'Boys.

Thanks, everyone. Sorry, Merry, but George is turning out to be a tough nut to crack. I can't seem redo Billy Joel's "Honesty" for him (or as "Honest Abe" for Lincoln) any more than I can properly do the Knickerbockers' "Lies" for Nixon (or Bush, for that matter). Of course, there's the joke: What did Bush say when they asked him abuot Roe v. Wade? He said he was glad Washington decided to row across the Delaware.

Maybe you could do "Tricky Dicky" to the tune of Lovely Rita, but go easy on the ol' boy - he's my cousin! :-D
