The Lyrics

Oh, the shark has...pearly teeth, Babe
And he shows 'em...pearly white
But Old Jack's got...just a van, Babe
And he drives it...'round at night

When that shark bites...with his teeth, Babe
Scarlet billows...start to spread
Doctor's gloves, though..wears Old Jack, Babe
Hypodermics,...never no spill of red

Euthansia,..a family's mourning
There's a body...losin' life
Jack the doctor
He's assistin'...a suicide..

Has a method, for life endin',...doncha' know
Terminals call come around
Last eight years he's...been in prison
Now, it looks like...Old Jack is Back in town..

Old Jack Kevorkian....he split the scene, Babe
Down in Michigan,...back in "Ninety Nine"
Charged with murder.."Murder Two" Babe
On parole now,...he's done his time...

Many call him,... "Doctor Death", but
Some say, "Angel"...just mercy bound
Suicidals...will be formin' lines, Babe
Now, that Jack Is...Back in town...

Yeah, many call him...."The Doc of Death" now
Still, some say, "Angel"....who is mercy bound..
Suicide lines form...on the right, Babe
Now that Jack Is....Back in town...

Look out, Old Jack is back !

Awesome job, AFW. High 5's for a highly humorous and topical parody about Kevorkian...hard to do.

Yes, his prison release needed a parody, and it would be hard to write a better one than this.
