Song Parodies -> Fragments -> Traditional

These are short parody lyrics set to the lyrics of songs by Traditional.


Traditional's, "Casey Jones"
Better Lyrics:
Casey Jones was a son of a gun
Wrecked his engine on a forty-mile run
The engine busted and the boiler split
And Casey ran into a pile of leaves.
[This is the clean version we sang around or parents. Otherwise we used a last line that rhymed. :D]
Original Lyrics:
Come all you rounders if you want to hear
The story of a brave engineer
Casey Jones was the rounder's name
On the six-eight wheeler, boys, he won his fame.
Submitted by: Doug Montgomery (& my sister and brother)
